Academy Weekly: Goodbye, Winter Intercession! Hello, Spring Semester!

Just like that, we’re wrapping up the first month of the new year—including the second one, courtesy of the lunar calendar. We’ve still got one final stretch before we officially move on to February though, so let’s first take a look back at the cool stuff we dished out last week.

Last week, the second online open house for the year. It’s not going to be the last, for sure, so just keep your eyes peeled for the next one in case you missed out on it. You also know that there’s really no stopping you now from being a part of our art school community once the Parent & Family Orientation happens.

We also celebrated MLK Day, which serves as a strong inspiration for all up to this day. By the end of last week, we welcomed another celebration, this time the Chinese New Year.

Meanwhile, we continue on with our blog series for entertainment arts, design; and game development, animation, and new media:

Up This Week

We’re not letting up just because January is on its way out. In fact, we’re about to step it up a couple of notches more, especially because we all can’t wait to see you back in school with us this Spring semester.

To kick your welcome off strong, we’re pushing not one, not two, not even three, but SIX videos as part of a series showcasing our industrial design school students’ partnership with Subaru.

We also have the usual get-ready-you’re-going-back-to-school fare, so be sure to check those out. Our handy tips and tricks should help your first week (and the rest of the school year, really) turn into a breeze.
