DFA student leaders are creative, organized, and highly passionate. You’ve got the gumption to start something and the commitment to follow through to lead the pack. As a DFA student leader, you are expected to spearhead the development of the studio at your school.
START A STUDIO
A student leader is someone who is so passionate about DFA you can’t stand another minute going without it. You know the time is now and you are ready to commit to an experience of a lifetime to lead your own studio on campus through the up times and the down times. If you like what you see, but there is no current DFA studio on your campus, this means you have the chance to be a founding member of your own DFA studio.
