  • “Designx9 is really cool because you get to work with actual clients instead of just made up projects. Everyone is working towards the same thing, rather than individual projects. I don’t know of any other places that allow students to do that. My advice is: don’t ever settle. Don’t say, 'Okay, I did my work, that’s good enough.' Always keep pushing yourself, because if you don’t critique your own work and you don’t care about your own work, then no one else will.” -Bradley Kelley (right), Majoring in Graphic Design, Class of 2019

    “It’s humbling to think about the opportunities that we’ve had. It’s so exciting. I hope I never get desensitized to being excited when people appreciate your work.” -Mark Roberts (left), Majoring in Graphic Design, Class of 2019

  • “I was having car trouble and needed a fast repair, but didn’t have the money, and it was frustrating. I’m a first generation college student and I’m kind of doing it all on my own.
    I was told how SEFA can help, so I applied for the grant. I was approved and had my car fixed in a matter of four days.” - UA Sophomore

  • “I participated in the Akron High Arts Festival and the woman who curates for Mustard Seed saw my work. She happened to know my mother, who is also an artist, and got my contact information. So, I was very lucky and was in the right place at the right time.
    My Mustard Seed show will start in February... it's a little scary because so much is happening for me at that time. I'll have to figure out where my work is going before then."

  • "I came to UA study computer science, actually. That's what I thought I wanted to do with my life. I met with my advisor and he encouraged me to take classes that I enjoyed more. I took one drawing class and realized this is what I needed to be doing. I needed to be here in this building. That's how I found Myers School of Art. I found my niche here. Printmaking is another language, essentially - and now, it has become like a first language for me."

  • “I’m graduating in December. I have two jobs, an internship, and am a leader in two organizations while trying to maintain my grades - but I still need money to live.
    So, this semester, for the first time, it became too much and I didn’t have money for rent one month. My administrator mentioned SEFA to me one day, and while I had heard of it, I didn’t really know what it was. She referred me and I qualified which was amazing because now I have wiggle room while I finish the semester and some relief because… bills.”

  • "I've always had a mind for religion - I think it's really interesting how people form beliefs. It's been interesting to see how a completely different culture, or cultures, have actually formulated very similar beliefs to what we have in the west, but have done so completely differently. There are a lot of intriguing questions I've gotten to explore in my classes about human nature and the way that our brains work in general."
