Platt Student Performing Arts House offers a supportive programmatic home for creative exploration and expression. We advise and train students pursuing their extra-curricular passions for the performing arts and those preparing for a career in the arts. Platt Student Performing Arts House is named for 1979 graduates Marc E. and Julie Beren Platt.

Please join us at part 1 of his celebrations during Homecoming on Saturday, November 11th at 4:30pm-6pm in Platt Student Performing Arts House. And if you are unable to join us for Homecoming, we will have more celebrations over alumni weekend!
