More than 30 units from all over campus are represented, ranging from the Division of Legal Affairs to the College of Computing and Software Engineering to the Office of the Registrars. KSU has a wealth of creative talent! The National Arts Program (NAP) gives artists at all skill levels the opportunity to exhibit their artwork professionally in Amateur, Intermediate, Professional, Teen, and Youth categories.
