“Before my time in the UW Design Program, I had never been surrounded by so many people fueled by a passion for what they do and a passion to do it well. There is no environment more inspiring to be in than that.”

Tanya, 2010

“My experience with the Division of Design helped prepare me for a career in the real world. My professors were attentive and pushed me to improve and learn every step of the way. Since originally I wasn't sure what discipline I wanted to study, the year spent exploring all three choices helped give me a better overall direction for my studies.”
