School of Design at Fan Fare
The School of Design had fun at Fan Fare during Homecoming 2015.

Faculty, staff, students, alumni and families enjoyed Fan Fare in the School of Business parking lot before the Homecoming football game. Fans packed the area to socialize and enjoy food, games and giveaways to show their Stevenson pride.

The School of Design tent was busy all morning dishing out nachos, raising money for Socktober, and of course handing out the highly desired "School of Design Rocks" foam fingers to excited fans!

Our foam fingers were popular among fans and were snatched up quickly.

Alumni Visits Portfolio Class
Stevenson graduate, Alysa Buchanan, visits VCD 410: Portfolio & Professional Development

Students in Portfolio and Professional Development had a familiar face visit their class to give advice on professional life after graduation. Alysa Buchanan, a 2014 VCD graduate, talked to the class about preparing for their careers and transitioning from students to professionals. She shared some of her own personal experiences, which included both struggles and successes, as she made her own shift into an entry-level position after graduation.

Alysa also sat down with students one-on-one to view their portfolio progress and provide feedback. Each student received tips for improvement to ensure their portfolios will stand out from others and be representative of their own personal style. Alysa is set to return to this class towards the end of the semester and is excited to see how the students have progressed and the portfolios have been transformed.
