This past Saturday, RISD celebrated with the Class of 2013, as they crossed the stage and received their diplomas. Families, friends and fellow students cheered on as the class entered the Convention Center. The graduates entered with a glorious ensemble of musicians, The Extraordinary Rendition Band.
It is a RISD tradition that graduate decorate their robes in festive and humorous decor. Check out the pics below to see our happy students proceed into their next journey.

WELCOME Class of 2016! Here’s to new friendships, journeys and adventures! Our Orientation Leaders are happy to help out and have been leading various activities. Students have moved in, said farewell to their parents and families and are busy doing lots of activities for Orientation. It was great to see the familiar acts of parents carrying many bags from CVS, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and cartons of beef flavored ramen noodles. Families walking around with campus maps and pointing at various RISD buildings at intersections, trying to get themselves situated. Our office is revving up for the new prospective students and we are happy to see so many new faces on campus. RISD Admissions office is busy preparing my travel for recruitment.
As part of RISD’s 2012 Common Reading Program
, all incoming undergrads were asked to tackle a great read over the summer: The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
by Junot Díaz. The Pulitzer Prize-winning author is coming to campus in November to read from and talk about the book with students (and all the rest of us who are great admirers, too).
Today, I am helping to introduce this year’s Orientation speakers, Nate and Kirk Mueller, 2010 MFA Digital Media alumni. They are a dynamic duo impacting design and changing how we create and think about interactive media.

Summer is here and RISD is full of energetic Pre-College and Summer studies students. What a great combination for an environment like RISD, artsy students and summer time weather!
Students participating in the 6 week summer pre-college program, are getting the chance to experience what it’s like to be at an art & design school. This experience provides students with the opportunity that foster their artistic and personal development.
The summer pre-college classes are taught by talented and professional artist from different art & design fields. On display in the Woods-Gerry gallery we have the Summer Faculty Exhibition and the work is wonderful. To see the work from the exhibit just click on the image below to start the slideshow.
