Studio Art

Ben Hurney

I came to FSU without knowing what I wanted to choose for a major. I initially started as a Business & Information Technology major, but after my first semester, I realized that I was looking for something a little more creative. I switched to studio art with a concentration in graphic design. Having a major that I'm passionate about has given me new-found motivation, and I'm excited about all the potential career paths I could take.

I was initially worried about making connections as a commuter student until I joined a number of student organizations, including Student Government Association, which is where I found a great community of friends.
