They have arrived! The newly ordered recycling bins need only a DASH Green Initiative logo and they will be ready for use. Keep an eye out for the new bins in the next couple of weeks and get involved in making our school environmentally friendly.


Portfolio Day Tips from Seniors

If you aren’t interested in an art school, bring your academic interests into your art for your portfolio.

-Maegan Cremer, Graphics

Run the review through your head first to make sure you know your art and how you want to present it.

-Harmonie Tsai, Industrial Design

Don’t worry about the school you talk to, any advice helps.

-Kam Chi Cheng, Architecture

Research the college sites before talking to the schools, so you can ask specific questions.

-Daria Krylova, Film

Don’t take it so seriously, but don’t act childish.

-Leah Zeng, Fashion

Even if you feel that you slipped up in your review, don’t panic–you still have another year to work it out.

-HeeJin Kim, Industrial Design

Don’t bring fifty pieces, it’s better to have two amazing ones.

-Khristine Perez, Graphics

Don’t forget to get the rep’s contact information and actually stay in contact with them.

-Tatyana Perez, Fashion

Start with the schools that have been said to give easier reviews and work your way up.

-Jose Ballon, Film

Start with the colleges that are smaller and lack lines. A review is a review.

-Melly Diaz, Graphics

Make nice business cards, they really make a lasting impression.

-Natalie Kopke, Industrial Design

Get your first review from a school that offers your major, but don’t plan to attend. It’s a perfect opportunity to practice talking about your work with someone who can relate to the field you’re interested in. Eye-opening perspective can arise from a conversation without preconceptions.

-Steven Zorrilla, Fashion

It’s meant to be a fun day, don’t worry or stress over it. The nerves will go away soon.

-Brianna Leatherbury, Architecture

Actually enjoy the work you’re showing and have it mean something to you personally. Show what you’re proud of.

-Julian Gheiler, Film
