What makes Keystone special to me?
"Lively, Energetic, Bohemian, and Gutsy feel within the Division of Fine Arts. Committed group of collegial people who actually work as a team. I like very much the student centeredness that pervades campus, and I feel that in our institution individuals can, and often do have a voice and can affect change."
