Our SMAD Day, which is a career day extravaganza that features panels and workshops by more than 75 SMAD alumni, is fall event that encourages student to build relationships that help find valuable internships and prospective job opportunities. Every school year culminates with an Awards Banquet in April to recognize scholarship recipients and acknowledge the importance of student work in media arts and design.

SMAD Connect

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 during the fall and spring semesters.  Guest speakers are invited to speak in classes and participate in SMAD sponsored events and organizations.

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.
