Saturday morning (1/22) at 10AM! Faculty from all areas of study, current students and alumni will be speaking and sharing some recent student work. We’ll also have break out rooms for each area and a students’ only room. This is a great opportunity to meet your area directors before your audition. If you’re on the fence about your major choice, you can ask them about the difference between both majors and see if it helps you decide!
