This summer, ACAD students, alumni and faculty came together to create our College's first Admissions Recruitment Video as part of a new project commissioned by the departments of Student Experience + Admissions, and Communications. The result: a remarkable animated view into the life and work of ACAD students covering all aspects of student life - from snowboarding to sketchbooks!

Directed by Nic Wassill (ACAD BDes 2011) and Ryan Von Hagen (ACAD fourth year student - MADT)

Produced and facilitated by Kevin D.A. Kurytnik
