The SMAD Connect initiative identifies both SMAD alumni and non-alumni media professionals who can provide career advice to current students. Events are typically scheduled on Fridays. Guest speakers are invited to speak in classes and participate in SMAD sponsored events and organizations.
SMAD Dog Days
SMAD kicks off each year with our Dog Days picnic and SMAD Opportunities Fair during the fall semester to allow students to network and build relationships with various SMAD faculty and staff outside of the classroom.
SMAD Awards Banquet & SMAD Day
SMAD culminates every school year with the Awards Banquet in April to recognize scholarship recipients followed by our SMAD Day, which is a career day extravaganza that features panels and workshops by more than 75 SMAD alumni.
