Senior Studio Space

All senior students are assigned individual studio spaces to help them develop and create their thesis projects. These spaces allow students to work alongside, collaborate, and be inspired by their fellow studio mates, as well as work individually with their instructors. Storing essential materials at their own space, students don’t need to transport materials back and forth from their apartments or homes.
