“We are excited to share the impressive work of our students in a virtual format this year,” said Dr. Brian Carlson, dean of the Creative Arts, Design & Media Pathway. “Our graduates have the hard and soft skills ready to start a career on day one and that’s more than evident in their work. I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity to explore their cutting-edge talent!”
