Center for the Arts Students Begin Scholarship Campaign

Author: Kylie Doyle

There is a scholarship fund on the horizon for students who have a creative voice that needs to be heard.  The Dean’s Student Advisory Committee of the Center of the Arts has announced that they will be taking donations for their newest project, an advocacy scholarship for LGBTQIA+ students at Temple University.  Despite the strides that have been taken in national as well as local policy regarding the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community, many teens within it still face a great deal of societal adversity. As many as 42% of LGBTQIA+ youth report feeling unaccepted in their communities.

Tyler Alumni Open the FLOODZONE

Author: Anonymous

Tyler grads are getting involved in a project that allows them to express themselves! FLOODZONE, a design studio not explicitly run by Tyler grads but with a high number of designers with a degree from Tyler is breaking into the apparel design realm. Doug Noe (2013), Lou Stuber (2013), Nate Kaszuba (2011), and Adam Trageser (2012) make up an excellent team of talented artists who are behind the FLOODZONE project. FLOODZONE was created after their founder, Charles Barrett and the artistic director Adam Trageser flew down to Georgia for a client photoshoot. On the way home, the plot to create FLOODZONE was hatched, turning into a full-scale apparel design company where their artistic overflow and unused ideas can take root and form a full-fledged project that allows them to express the ideas that they might have previously had to put aside.
