What Is ACE?
The Arts and Creative Expression Residential Learning Community (or ACE) is a program in Parmelee Hall that provides students in the visual and performing arts a collaborative environment in which to grow creatively. Students will learn to become strong advocates of the arts and will have opportunities to participate in service learning programs and outings such as gallery walks, museum visits, and live performances both on and off campus.
Students are required to take a 1 credit course, LEAP 180: Community Arts Project Management. This course meets the first 8 weeks of the fall semester and is open to ACE community members only. In it, students will collaborate to organize and implement a real-world, art-based event for the Fort Collins and Loveland communities.
Who Can Apply?
The ACE Program is open to first year students who are majoring in Art, Music, Dance, and Theatre. Pre-music majors do not qualify.
