Art + Design Preview

August 14, 2015 - August 15, 2015

Get oriented!

Art & Design Preview is a two-day program hosted by the College of Art & Design. The program allows incoming freshmen and transfer students to get oriented and situated on campus before the semester begins. As a participant, you will receive an insider’s tour of studios, buildings, and shops; do some academic warm-up work in the studio and lecture hall; and spend time with the learning experts from the Center for Academic Success to see how they can help you achieve academic excellence. Most importantly, Art & Design Preview provides an opportunity to meet your classmates before the semester begins. This program is free; the only associated costs are an early dorm move-in fee and meals.
