"From art I've gained a more complete sense of history, sociology, anthropology, psychology, science, and politics. Art at Millsaps has truly helped me to bridge all the disciplines, and isn't that what a liberal arts education is all about?!"
"Art is like a modern-day time machine, to transport us to past cultures ... Besides, who wants to go to a museum in Europe and not appreciate what you see? Not me!"
"I believe that a good education isn't complete without some understanding of art, and the art history and studio classes are small at Millsaps and allow the type of interaction between students and professors that's most beneficial."
