COM believes that education and personal enhancement go beyond the textbook. That’s why COM strives to offer everyone, both students and community members, access to some of the finest artistic and cultural experiences in the region.


Art Gallery – COM’s Art Gallery features contemporary art exhibits created by local professional artists. We complement these exhibits with guest speakers and events to help promote the study and appreciation of art. Students have the opportunity to visit with artists who have achieved professional success and learn the skills necessary to compete in the workplace. 


COM Community Theatre – Recognized as one of America’s leading community theatres, COM Community Theatre is known for its high-quality productions and innovative theatre arts program. It provides quality theatrical experiences for local residents and offers performing opportunities through open auditions for local and regional talent. Since 1972 COM has presented more than 225 productions, including children’s theatre, concerts and workshops that have drawn more than 250,000 attendees. 


Music Series – From jazz classics to modern hits, COM musical groups perform concerts and specials that are open to the public and free (unless otherwise noted).


Multicultural Events – COM's Multicultural Team sponsors and supports numerous educational and cultural events and activities on campus and in the community.
