Ask an Arts Management Alum: Diane Poff Billas '08

Diane Poff Billas ’08 decided to attend Shenandoah University because of its Bachelor of Science degree in art management. At the time, there wasn’t another university that offered an undergraduate degree in arts management. Billas always liked that the professors really took the time to make sure students learned and understood the course material, and also cared about them as a person.

“That’s one of the main reasons I loved going to a small school; if I ever had trouble with a class, I could just meet with a professor and they would help with the material,” said Billas. “Not many of my friends who went to a large school had that opportunity.”

One of Billas’ fondest memories of Shenandoah was being elected president of the Organization of Arts Management Students. This position helped her refine her leadership skills and allowed her to meet some amazing people, some of whom she still keeps in touch with today.
