A Week of Greatness

Hello again,

As I mentioned in one of my previous blog that the College of Design will be hosting the first ever Public Interest Design Week during March 19th -24th. There will be people from all over the places. It sure will be the largest gathering of people who are involved with public interest design. The best news is that the University of Minnesota students can now attend events for free! This is the best thing that happened to me in a month. There will be tons of great speakers, designers, policy makers, architects, educators, and students from across the country. What a great networking opportunity! So, what exactly is public interest design? It is a movement that intersect design with services. This includes, but not limited to affordable housing, education, social issues at hand, etc. It is a MUST ATTEND event. Register here: http://pidweek.eventbrite.com/ I hope to see you there!

Also, I was part of the Dean's Reception last Saturday. It was nice to see some of you at the event. We had a presentation about each program at the College of Design. The best part was talking to prospective CDes members and getting to know some of you and your parents. I really enjoyed learning about what you all are interested in and looking forward to at the U. If you were unable to attend the event, but still have some questions, please feel free to contact me anytime. I will write about the Dean's Reception in details next week. Get excited!


See you next blog!
