Student and Alumni Spotlights for the Visual Arts Program

Laura Tait, Art Major

Name: Laura Tait
Major: Visual Arts
Hometown: McHenry, IL
Fact: I enjoy capes, cameras, and friends. Especially when you put the three together.

I chose to come to Belhaven because... I wanted to attend a school that would encourage me in my faith and provide understanding of the arts with a Christian worldview. Belhaven’s Visual Arts Department is a strong program where the professors guide you through your process in art along with your personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

One relationship that has meant a lot to me while attending Belhaven... Some of the most meaningful relationships have been those of my friends. They have encouraged and reminded me of how blessed I am to study art. I am able to see how God has led me to study here and how He has also led them in their academic journeys.

Because of my degree from Belhaven University... I have applied my faith and growth in my relationship with God through my studies of art. I am learning how I can use my gifts to glorify Him.

One word to describe my experience at Belhaven: Notemarvenitual (Noteworthy, remarkable, adventurous, spiritual).
