Design Experience Day

The School of Design Experience Day is an event that happens once during the fall semester and once in the spring semester. It provides you the opportunity to experience the culture, the work, and the people (faculty, staff, and students) that are the life of the School of Design. In the fall, the event coincides with a Carnegie Mellon Turn Tartan Overnight (TTO) and Celebration of Diversity (COD) event. The TTO and COD are weekend-long events that provide you further exposure and insight to the great opportunities for studying and socializing across the university. You will need to sign-up for the TTO and COD events separately from the School of Design Experience Day.


Due to the current situation with the COVID-19 outbreak and Carnegie Mellon University's efforts to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff, our April 5th, 2020 Design Experience Day will be moved to a Virtual Design Experience Day. Sign up for this Virtual Design Experience Day has been extended to April 3rd.

The Design Experience Day will be held via a Zoom meeting on Sunday April 5th from 10:00AM to 12:00PM (ET).

The Agenda:

  • Welcome and Introductions
  • The School and programs
  • The Studio Experience
