You can visit RISD at any time that Admissions offers campus tours and information sessions, which is spelled out in detail in the Admissions area of the site.
Once a year – in the fall – Graduate Studies hosts an IN FOcus information session for prospective graduate applicants. The 2012 program took place on Friday, November 16. IN FOcus offers an overview of graduate education at RISD and an up-close, inside view of specific programs of interest.
Each afternoon IN FOcus session morphs into an evening of graduate Open Studios. It’s a great opportunity to see the studios in use, talk to students about what they’re making and find out their impressions of graduate study at RISD. An after-party at The Salon offers continued opportunities to mix and mingle.
