Preston Residential College

Literature and Arts Society

Our students enrich their community by following their passion for the creative arts and cultivating opportunities for others to do the same.

The Literary and Arts Society hosts a variety of events, including a book club, the annual Slam 'n' Jam talent show, and a tour of the Special Collections at the Thomas Cooper Library. The society also helps to create our own literary journal, Bellwether. The group is guided by the Literature and Arts Society Constitution [pdf].
