It all starts
with an idea.

Design can make the world better.

Our new majors in Animation and Illustration–and emphases in Experience Design and Game Arts–take that idea and run with it.

We are makers, performers, explorers, and innovators.

But above all else, we are artists. Get to know some of the talented students and staff who imbue our community every day with their dynamism.

Hungry? Please enjoy some eye candy.
Take a few moments to browse our galleries of student work. Warning: You may not want to leave.

Our rigorous cross-disciplinary curricula are designed to stimulate collaboration and innovation. One of the best ways to appreciate our community is through the work our students create here.
