MY UNIVERSITY

Swimming in college and studying my dream carriers of industrial and graphic design came together perfectly here with incredible financial aid. Our campus is only a 1.5 hr train ride to New York City which is a huge plus.


Course Curriculum - 

Just enough core classes that give you a little break from design and give you different perspectives of the real world outside of design, and just enough design where we are covering everything enough to where we can see what we like to design best.
