Campus Life

Delaware College of Art and Design
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, the Art Exchange and Commencement festivities, 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 groups

Student clubs and organizations are formed based on the current students’ interests and are approved through the Office of Student Services. Most recently, DCAD students formed a student advocacy and programming board that will provide outlets and activities reflecting the diverse interests of the DCAD student body. DCAD clubs and organizations are consistently seeking new members. Those interested in more information are welcome to visit the Student Service Office, or contact a club executive board member directly. 

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 at DCAD. Upcoming lectures can be found on the Calendar of Events.
