Open House

The College of Design participates in the University Open House on October 15th, 2016! We highly recommend attending Open House as it’s a wonderful opportunity to see the University, attend information sessions within the College of Design, see our open studios, and meet faculty and current students. Many of these opportunities are specific to Open House and are not available on regular tours.

(No tours are given through the summer.)
Times: 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.

The College of Design provides tours for prospective students interested in our undergraduate programs on Mondays and Fridays during the fall and spring semester.. Tours are an hour long beginning at 11:30 a.m. from the lobby of Brooks Hall. We also encourage you to visit the University as a whole, but because of our tour timing, we encourage you to schedule a University tour for 1:00pm.
