Katie Creech

Director of Cultural Arts

Year & Major: Junior; Double majoring in Art Studio and Arts Administration

“I have the goal of working in a non-profit gallery, so I’m very excited about that!  My favorite SAB event would be a tie between the Young Artist Competition and Stuff-a-Plush. I love YAC because it gives students an opportunity to share their creativity with their peers as well as giving them the chance to display their art in a gallery setting. Stuff-a-Plush was another one of my favorites because it was a fun, mini Build-a-Bear workshop that students could participate in between classes. I’m super excited for all the great events SAB will be bringing to campus this year!”
