On Saturday, Feb. 1, the College of Architecture, Art and Design held Academic Insight, an event for admitted MSU students and their guests. This is the second time the college has held the event, and 98 guests attended.

The event was meant to help students get a better understanding of the programs within the college and was a chance for students to meet other incoming students, current students and professors.

After a department fair, students and their guests had a chance to mingle with current students and faculty over breakfast before Dean Jim West presented an overview of the college.

After the presentation, the group split up into the four college units – architecture, art, interior design and building construction science – and went to those facilities for a “breakout session.”

During the sessions, parents had a chance to meet with the program directors and faculty while students worked on an activity meant to give them a glimpse into their program.

Art students worked with Professors Alex Bostic and Suzanne Powney along with current art student volunteers on a self-portrait project.
