At MassArt, students are challenged to extend the boundaries of learning through the activities they become involved in, the resources they utilize, and the people they meet. Students are continually encouraged to contribute to the campus community in ways that can make a difference.
The Office of Student Activities and Programs provides quality services to students that contribute to their academic and co-curricular success. The office works closely with faculty, staff, students, and especially the MassArt Activities Council (MAC) student programming board, one of the student organizations that plans activities to meet the social, cultural, educational, recreational and wellness interests of students.
