  • Meet each other – our wonderful admitted students –in our online chat room
  • View images of our recent BFA show, with detailed information about the artworks hosted by our Dean of Undergraduate Studies (she has a Scottish accent, and is super smart, and interesting)
  • Ask representatives from Admissions, Financial Aid, Career Services, SAIC Internships, and Student Affairs any questions you may have (no accents here, but still very helpful)
  • Attend on-demand sessions on topics including careers, financing your education, and virtual tours of our campus
