DCAD is a place to live, learn and experience.
Student life at DCAD maintains a very busy calendar of activities throughout the year. On campus, activities range from major events such as Spirit Week and the DCAD Chili Smackdown in the fall semester, to Casino Night, Woodstock and Commencement festivities in the spring semester, to the smaller events such as karaoke nights, game nights and pot-luck dinners. Museum trips to New York City or Washington, DC, occur each semester and faculty members have been known to arrange trips to area galleries and attractions in Wilmington, Philadelphia and Baltimore.
Student clubs and organizations are formed based on the current students’ interests and are approved through the Office of Student Services. Groups such as the DCAD Film Club, the Writing Club, the Yoga Club, and the Student Gallery, have provided outlets reflecting the diverse interests of the DCAD student body. In 2012, DCAD published its first literary magazine, Another Medium, which features original works by DCAD students. What will students look to do in the coming year?
Visiting Artists and Scholars
Every year, nationally-known artists, designers, and scholars — from each area of concentration and academic studies — are invited to lecture and work with students in studio settings. These lectures are open to the public and held during the common hour in the Copeland Room at the Delaware History Center. Upcoming lectures can be found on the Calendar of Events.
