Dr. Savino explains her integration of many diverse interests as a natural consequence of exploring life through art:
"Creative pursuits are an opportunity for opening new horizons of thought ...laying a foundation for experiencing beauty and personal expression throughout one's lifetime... As humans, we need to be encouraged to experience the beauty contained in the subjects of the Humanities... As a social being, we need to have leisure and enjoyment so as to fully develop our own talents and feelings... As humans, we must be able to experience with our senses, and express with our talents... This is the basis of the study of Humanities, the place where we begin to understand the potential of human nature in courses such as philosophy, music, art, theater, literature and poetry."
