The Arts

An education is more than just books.

Involvement in the arts is associated with gains in math, reading, cognitive ability, critical thinking, and verbal skill. Arts learning can also improve motivation, concentration, confidence, and teamwork. Experiences in the arts enhance lives and provide lifelong learning opportunities.

All Mayville State students have the opportunity to participate in band and choir, and the theater provides numerous ways to get involved, from acting, to costume and set design and marketing and promotion. Mayville State University offers arts opportunities not only for student performers, but also for student and community enjoyment.

The Northern Lights Art Gallery located on campus brings in several shows each year, and the MSU & Community Fine Arts Series annually brings in a number of world-class musicians to perform on the stage of the MSU Classroom Building Auditorium.
