To entertain, inspire, uplift, and comfort members of the Southern community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we present SouthernShares, a series of video performances and presentations by faculty, students, staff, and other members of the Southern family.

Art students like to share, too! While studying remotely this semester, Art Department students were busy making art — sculpture, paintings, drawings, graphic design, and more — and sharing it online, on the Art Department’s Instagram page — — and EA216, the virtual Earl Hall 216, a space created for the Graphic Design Program at Southern: Drop by both virtual galleries and enjoy some student art!
