Sophomore Portfolio Review

OVERVIEW

The PSUGD faculty will evaluate the portfolios for the rest of they week they are turned in, and will then send you an email when your results are posted on the registration website, and when your portfolios are ready for pick-up.


DROP-OFF DEADLINE
June 4, 12–2pm in AB 320


INFO SESSIONS (REQUIRED)

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 😉

Writing Sample Examples

Please note all have presented their work in different ways…the one element that ties them together is that they focused on showing their work in a format that best highlights their pieces. Some used boards, some used a box, some made a book, some included actual pieces, some included all of these elements. Again, the element that ties together successful portfolios is that the work SHINES.


RESOURCES

We’ve been there too! No sleep, constant anxiety, feeling like you are living an endless loop of critiques and revisions. The Sophomore Portfolio Review is probably one of the most stressful times of a design student’s life. But you don’t have to face it along (and you shouldn’t have to). The PSUGD Mentorship program is here to help!
Mentorship is a program that pairs Juniors & Seniors who have passed the Review with Sophomores who are wanting help and insight into how to better their Portfolio. Sign up today to increase your support base! tinyurl.com/menteetime
