To our new students and as a reminder to our returning students (as well as our faculty) - this is the A+D Weekly! This is a resource for us to get you announcements, school news and events, job and internship postings as well as other scholarships, competitions, and opportunities. We put it all in one place for you so you don't get all of them individually as emails. Please make sure to read through each week to get all information that you may need to know. Always feel free to send us information that you may want to get posted as well!
