The Best Reasons to Attend an Open House

As you start your college journey, one of the most important things you can do is make the right decision about where to pursue your undergraduate or graduate degree.

One of the best ways to find which college is right for you is to check it out for yourself. Academy of Art University regularly offers Open House events that let prospective students explore the dynamic learning environment we offer both onsite in San Francisco and via our Online Education program. With over 100 degree options in over 30 departments, what are you waiting for?

Here are the top reasons you should attend an Open House for the colleges/universities that you’re currently considering:

  • Discover which program best fits your interests, from Photography to Web Design & New Media to Architecture to Fashion—you have to explore your passions to learn where studies in a certain field can take you in your career.
  • Get detailed help on admissions processes: Every school has a different way of evaluating your education and skills to date. There’s also housing, financial aid and scholarships to consider. Academy of Art University offers no-barriers entry and an easy step-by-step process to get you on track to your degree
  • Tour campus facilities and see how you may enjoy your new home city. Tours allow you ask questions and see the highlights of the campus. Whether you’re going to pursue your degree online or on campus, it’s helpful to see the studios, art rooms, sound stages, and work spaces that collectively form Academy of Art University. (Our Online Education students can visit anytime for a tour.) With cutting edge facilities and technology available for each department, you’ll get a taste of what resources will be available to you during your studies. You may also have the option to tour housing facilities during your Open House session
  • We’ll help you understand all your financial aid options. Open House events have representatives from financial aid to answer your questions and help guide you on what options might be available in terms of loans, grants, or scholarships. Being ready to share qualifying information is helpful in getting a head start to plan the financing of your education.

Academy of Art University’s next Open House is on Saturday December 9, from 10am-4pm at 79 New Montgomery Street, San Francisco, CA 94105. To join us, please RSVP here!
