Take a Tour

Students interested in programs within the School of Visual Arts and Design are encouraged to tour our art studios and other computer labs. Each tour begins with an information session with an overview of each program and their requirements. Tours are conducted by faculty, staff, alumni and student ambassadors who are enrolled in an SVAD program. These sessions and tours are offered together and are scheduled on select Fridays. Use the link below to see which dates are currently available and to register for a tour. Large groups or schools should contact our office ([email protected]) ahead of time to make arrangements.


Open House Events

We encourage prospective students and their families to attend “open to the public” events that occur throughout the semester for a chance to speak with faculty, current students and to see the facilities. The dates of these events can be found under News & Events.
