Woodbury University School of Media, Culture & Design Sets End-of-Year Showcase Events on May 11th
Graduating Seniors and Award-Winning Students Take Center Stage
As the academic year draws to a close, graduating seniors and award-winning students from Woodbury University’s School of Media, Culture & Design (MCD) will be displaying their portfolios and prize-winning work at various venues on campus.
“The 2018 year-end showcase of student work promises to be among MCD’s best, as we highlight the creativity and accomplishments of graduating seniors,” said Sue Vessella, M.F.A., Dean, MCD. “Students value the opportunity to present their work publicly to their peers, instructors, professionals and guests, and we’re proud to share their achievements with the community. As they celebrate both skill and craft, this year’s showcase events mark the transition from student to professional for many of our graduating seniors.” All events are open to the public.
