Visiting a college’s campus to tour, engage in workshops, and have conversations with faculty and students, is the best way to decide if a college is the right one for you. On this Saturday, we’d like to invite prospective PNCA undergrad students to join us to experience, first-hand, how PNCA will empower you to reimagine what art and design can do in the world.

RSVP for this event here.
