Fine Arts students at York University are part of a lively community of more than 53,000 full and part-time students from around the corner and around the world, studying not only in the fine arts, but also health, science, engineering, environmental studies, law, education, business and the liberal arts.
The Creative Arts Student Association (CASA) is the student government in the Faculty of Fine Arts. It's an inclusive, dynamic organization run entirely by Fine Arts students, with representatives from the student association of each Fine Arts department: dance, design, digital media, film music, theatre and visual art/art history. CASA represents student interests to the administration and builds community between Fine Art students. It generates programming, activities and informal networking opportunities, from weeky coffee houses to the annual iMix Festival, and supports and encourages student initiatives ithrough advocacy, publicity, a grants program for extracurricular creative projects, and the SOFA (Spotlight on Fine Arts) blog. Connect with the friendly CASA folks in Room 164A Goldfarb Centre for Fine Arts (off the main lobby) or firstname.lastname@example.org or on social media.
