The History of Your Seat
In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the University Center for the Arts at Colorado State University, you can add your name to the history of this community treasure by naming a seat today.
Since 2008, you’ve witnessed the magic of the UCA. Whether the stage featured talented CSU students or renowned international guest performers, it was in your seat that you reclined back against the rush of powerful music, leaned forward at a dramatic plot twist, and shimmied between your armrests along with the dancers.
You’ve also experienced the transformative power of the UCA as a place where CSU students discover who they are through performance, design, choreography, applied study, research, and rigorous academic courses in dance, theatre, music, music education, and music therapy.
From its beginning as the historic Fort Collins High School to establishing itself as one of the premiere university performing arts centers in the country, the UCA has been a gateway to education and the arts for generations of Lambkins and Rams alike.
Your Seat Supports a Student
For many students, Colorado State University and a degree from the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance wouldn’t be possible without scholarship support. When you Name a Seat, you open the stage for the next generation of performing arts students.
Your Name a Seat gift supports a School of Music, Theatre, and Dance scholarship, which helps attract the finest artistic talent to CSU and enables students to pursue their dreams of artistic and academic excellence.
With your gift to a music, theatre, or dance scholarship, you become part of UCA history. Your name will be placed on a seat in the theatre of your choice.
