I am a Chicago based multidisciplinary visual artist. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from SAIC in 2014 where I studied studio art. My experience and expertise covers a wide range of media: photography, motion pictures, editing, sculpture, writing, and more. Since the summer of 2014, I have worked for SAIC Admissions as an Admissions Counselor.

This special event is the perfect opportunity for admitted freshmen students to join us on campus to preregister for fall classes, view the work of current first-year students, tour campus and our residence halls, get all of your questions answered, and more.


  • We will begin the day with an introduction to the many ways SAIC influences the visual landscape. You will walk away inspired. We promise.
  • You can preregister for your first semester classes and ensure you get your ideal schedule. You can choose Research Studio and English course topics and your choice of studio elective.
  • Every year, we exhibit the accomplishments of our first-year students in a show called ARTBASH. You will get to tour the exhibition with first-year program faculty.
  • Representatives from Admissions, Financial Aid, Career Services, SAIC Internships, and Student Affairs will be on-hand to answer all of your questions.
  • You can tour campus and residence halls. Walking the campus, seeing the state-of-the-art facilities and incredible residence halls, checking out the work all around you, and reading the various notices up on the walls and bulletin boards is a great way to get a sense of what life at SAIC is like.

Please note: There are limited slots available for preregistration. Slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
