2014 Special Events for Admitted Students

The hard work is over—for now. Not only have you completed your application paperwork, you have given us insight about who you are as a thinker and maker through the work you’ve shown us in your portfolio.

And, although we’ve said it before, congratulations on being admitted to the nation’s most influential art and design school. It is an accomplishment of which you should be very proud.

Now it’s time to dive in, learn more about us, and make sure ALL of your questions are answered.

To help you with this, we have provided you two opportunities to meet with us—at receptions in cities around the country and abroad, and here on campus at our preregistration day. The programming for these events is different, and attendance at both is encouraged.

We look forward to seeing you, and please do not hesitate to contact us in the meantime with any questions you may have!
