The graphic design program will be hosting a number of Information Sessions that will help you in preparing for this year’s Review. We have scheduled three different time slots, which will give you a thorough overview of what’s to be expected for the Review, an opportunity to see examples of work from years past, and information about accessing help from a variety of resources. You only need to come to one of these three sessions.

Please arrive on time, with materials ready for taking notes. There will be time at the end of the presentation for asking whatever questions you may have. Before attending an Information Session, note that it is in your best interest to read the information packet and download the checklist that pertains to this year’s Review.

ATTENDING ONE of the information sessions IS A REQUIREMENT for the Portfolio Review. You should also be on the lookout for additional emails and posters throughout Spring term announcing important events/updates related to The Review. You do not need to register for information sessions. Just show up 😉
