PITTSBURGH, Jan. 14, 2019 –
On Monday, Feb. 18, La Roche University will host Meet Design
, an all-day event for high school juniors and seniors to explore creative careers in the fields of graphic and interior design.
The event is scheduled from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at La Roche’s campus in the North Hills. Students who attend Meet Design at La Roche will test their own creative skills by participating in a hands-on design project.
Lisa Kamphaus, chair of the La Roche Design Division, said, “Meet Design at La Roche is a unique opportunity for high school seniors and juniors. They have the opportunity to work with our students and faculty, and go behind the scenes for a firsthand look at our studio classes.”
After completing their projects, students will hear from La Roche design alumni and professionals about the challenges and opportunities in the field.
While students are working on their projects, Meet Design at La Roche will offer an alternative schedule for parents to learn more about the University’s admissions process, student life, financial aid, tutoring, and academic support and career services. The event will include an optional, abbreviated morning tour of campus, a continental breakfast and lunch. Register online
by Feb. 13. Limited space is available, and one parent or guardian per registered student is welcome to attend. High school juniors and seniors who have not attended Meet Design before are given priority.
