On Saturday, Feb. 23, the College of Architecture, Art and Design held Academic Insight, an event for admitted MSU students and their guests.

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 lunch before Dean Jim West presented an overview of the college.

The group then 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.

Students interested in the Interior Design Program were taught how to do a basic rendering project, had a chance to tour the facilities in Etheredge Hall and talk to current interior design students.
