The MFA Student Organization (MFASO) is a student run group of current Hunter MFA candidates. Made up of four student officers and a fluid number of student representatives, our responsibilities include organizing the Visiting Artists Lecture Series, Open Studios, the Silent Auction, Hunter Beat, Flex Space Curation, and Open Crits.

In addition to traditional MFASO programing we are dedicated to creating contexts for critique and discussion, opportunities for students to get to know each other and fostering a community that extends beyond the Hunter College Campus.
