Cinema and Television Arts (CTVA) Community

CTVA Learning Community

CTVA Community is a valuable on-campus residential learning experience available to students who have declared a major or a minor in Cinema and Television Arts (CTVA). Students from other majors, who have an interest in film and TV, are eligible to be residents in the community as well.  The community brings together students who are passionate about film and television and who hope to work in the industry in either:  Management, Production, Writing, or Critical Studies.  Student residents will have the unique opportunity to interact, build a strong sense of community through purposeful interactions with other students, staff, faculty, and administrators. 

As a benefit, students will participate in guest presentations, industry mixers, meals with professors, film screenings, and linked activities with the College of Communications Student Success Team (SST), such as major and career advising.  Connection in the film and television industry is essential.  This theme community allows you to begin building your network now!
