The Society will visit museums, create group study events, and attend academic conferences in hopes of introducing students to history in a fun and nonthreatening way. It is the Society's hope that it will further the education of its members, create unity between all areas of focus within the School of Art, and share an appreciation for the history of art with the rest of the university.
