Should I sign up if I have not auditioned yet?

Yes. If you are scheduled to audition for the College of Fine Arts, you can still sign up for the Fine Arts House. If you are not offered a position within the college, we will use your hall preferences to assign you a room outside of the Fine Arts House.
