Graduate Admissions

One of the really interesting things about being in a large university with 12 graduate and professional schools is that we have unlimited chances for collaboration.

Looking for something to do on Sunday afternoons this summer?

Philly loves beer, and to celebrate, we hold a 10-day celebration with events planned each day.

Whether you're originally from a large city, a suburban town, or a rural community, I think we can all agree that everyone needs delicious, healthy food!  While you're in Philadelphia, you don't have to give up eating healthy or buying locally.

We want to take this time to congratulate all of PennDesign's recent graduates! A special shout out to our Student Ambassadors that received their degrees this year: Aimee, Evan, José, Karli, Katrina, Luis, Nick, Ryo, and Shruthi!

We promised that we would post pictures of the Year-End Show (Y.E.S.) so here they are! We celebrated the end of the year with a barbecue outside under the tent. The Master of Fine Arts students had their own show at the Icebox Project Space in Northern Liberties.

Now that it's warming up outside here in Philadelphia, we're spending a lot more time outdoors, and the city has a lot to offer its residents and visitors during this warm weather season!

As many of you know, Commencement was held this past Monday. It was lovely! We are so proud of our graduated students and are definitely missing their energy and company on campus. Things are never boring here though, I saw this new campus addition on my lunch break today.

PennDesign's 2017 commencement ceremony is this Monday, May 15th. This day will be bitter sweet for us as we are so excited for our graduate students but will of course miss them! Let's keep our fingers crossed for beautiful weather!

What’s so exciting about this image, you’re asking? Well by 6 pm tomorrow, this space will be plastered with student work for the Year End Show (YES). On top of that, it will be packed with our students and faculty celebrating the end of the year for a special happy hour!

Space Craft: The 2017 PennDesign Year End Show is this Friday at Meyerson Hall from 5:30pm-8:30 pm.
