Alumnus Gives Back with Design
RYAN: I believe that all College of Design alumni should be involved with the school in some way. It can be easy to forget where we came from, but it’s important to remember how the College impacted our lives and how we can impact the College by giving back. This is really important to me.During my senior capstone studio, we had a weekly talk with designers around the world, some of whom were College of Design alumni. As a student about to graduate and search for jobs, it was really encouraging to see Graphic Design alumni working on real-life projects and impacting the world. When I graduated, I knew that I needed to keep in touch with the College so that I could make an impact on students the way that alumni impacted me. Helping with small projects like the barbecue is a great way to stay in touch and improve current students’ experience.
