Create, Produce, And Inspire

Eliza R. Snow was a prolific historian and writer of poetry who served as the second president of the Church’s Relief Society. The Snow building joins other efforts to fulfill President Clark’s first imperative from his Inaugural Address: to increase substantially the quality of every aspect of the student experience.

Become Great
As the only major building on campus named after a female, the Snow Building boasts incredible music teachers who are professional in their respective emphasis. Each group practice room door weighs 400 lbs to reduce sound outside the rooms.
"The Snow Building is where I’ve been able to perform. I’ve participated in a large dance show called Extravadance. The Black Box theater inside the Snow has been a big part of my college experience."
