Nossi College of Art

recognizes local honor student

NASHVILLE— Nossi College of Art has named Bethany Terry from Cleveland to the Summa Cum Laude honor roll for the would fall 2012 semester.

In the fall semester, Nossi had 100 students who qualified for the honor roll, maintaining a grade point average of 3.40 or higher. “We are proud of our students’ commitment to maintain a high standard being named to the honor roll,” said Cyrus Vatandoost, executive vice president at Nossi.

The core of Nossi’s educational model is based on real world experiences. Adjunct faculty members currently active in their creative career teach the students. Nossi also partners with local businesses and non-profits to help with brand identity, web development, marketing strategies or photography and video projects. This experience helps students understand how the creative industry works, well before they graduate.

“Students on the honor roll are more likely to be involved in client-based projects,” Libby Funke, student activities and communications coordinator, said . “This experience is invaluable to students looking for career-based jobs during school and after graduation.”

Established in 1973, Nossi College of Art recently constructed a new campus just north of Downtown Nashville. Due to growing interest in its visual communications programs, the small, private college now offers bachelor and associate degrees in photography, graphic design, illustration and video. Nossi College is nationally accredited and authorized by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission.
