Celebrating five years as CDes


Today we celebrate five years since the formation of the College of Design, and I wanted to take a moment before the holiday weekend to give my thanks and wish everyone a very "happy birthday." While we've traveled down some bumpy roads over the last five years, we've come through that experience together - and we are stronger than ever before.

During our five-year journey, perhaps without even fully recognizing it, we've grown into one of the most comprehensive design colleges in the entire country. The scholarship, the innovation, and the education we provide goes above and beyond what most design schools are now doing. We create, we engage, we act, and I'm proud and honored to be part of the college that we've built.

Please have a safe and happy holiday weekend. Thank you for your dedication and again, happy birthday.
