Student experiences

"INCREDIBLE!! Totally enjoyed it and had a fabulous time. Thought it was the perfect course for anyone going into design."
"The course was a prefect blend of getting a chance to work individually as well in groups. It allowed us to experience the application of design apart from learning the theoretical aspects. I honestly loved everything about this class."
