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.

INFORMATION SESSIONS 2015 (all in room 160)
March 10 (Tuesday), 1pm
March 11 (Wednesday), 1pm
April 8 (Wednesday), 1pm

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. If you are interested in getting an upperclassman mentor please contact

What the Help is PSUGD’s mentorship program, which pairs sophomores going through the portfolio review with juniors/seniors who have already passed that can give them some guidance.

(Especially YOU, genius juniors and seniors who have already passed the review!)

This year, the sign-up process is totally digital.
