Ave Maria Univ. Announces Plans for Performing Arts Center

AMU encourages interest in the arts through construction plans.

Ave Maria University recently announced plans to build a 1,250-seat performing arts center on its campus, according to the University’s website.

The performing arts center, which is expected to be finished in 2016, will “give students a much-needed venue to practice and master their talents and further study the arts.”  The University reports:

The $10 million performing arts center will feature a thrust stage extending into the audience and also house classrooms, a multi-media studio, office space, practice rooms and an art gallery. Its location will give AMU students the opportunity to experience the arts within a short walk on campus. In addition, the University will now have a first-class venue to host both internal and external events such as graduation and conferences.

“We have started a new era,” said AMU President Jim Towey. “Our founder, Tom Monaghan, had a great interest in the arts and planted the seeds. More and more of our students, coming from all over the world, are interested in the arts and this new performing arts center will fill that need.”

Not only does AMU expect the new center to draw students from around the world who are interested in the arts, but also to attract top-flight faculty members to teach at the University.

Ave Maria University is recommended in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
