Just down Hale Street from the undergraduate College, Endicott’s Van Loan School of Graduate and Professional Studies has been quite busy with new programs, new campuses, and some fantastic student accomplishments. Take a look at some of the exciting news coming out of GPS!
We are happy to announce that Emily Dyer, MA in Interior Design 2012, was awarded the ASID Foundation’s Joel Polsky Academic Achievement Award for her MA Thesis, “Dwelling in The Home: Designing for Mindfulness, Connection and Well-being.”
The Endicott Alumni Mentoring Program matches Endicott undergrads with successful alumni working in their fields for one-on-one career mentoring. Mentors help students learn more about their fields, and in turn, students update mentors on campus life and re-acquaint them with the campus community. Read on to learn about the mentorships of Amanda Schubert and Kirsten Smith, who both graduated this past spring.
The below guest post is from Michael Fior, faculty in the Visual and Performing Arts department. Myoung Joo Chun, Director of Graduate Interior Design, is the instructor of the studio. You can contact her at mchun [at] Endicott [dot] edu with any questions about the Interior Design Graduate program.
On Monday, May 16, the eight members of the first Endicott MFA and MA cohort assembled, somewhat anxiously, for the final critique of the semester-long ID515 Concentration Option Studio Project.
A number of guests attended to support the eight members with their comments and to celebrate together, including: Mary Huegel, V.P. & Dean of the School of Graduate and Professional Studies; Professor Barbara Maier; Kevin Renz, Associate Dean of Interior Design & Sustainable Design; Associate Professor Andrew Brody; Assistant Professor Robert Anderson; Robert Augustine, Adjunct Faculty; Kathy Moore, Visual Arts Coordinator; Kristin Solias, Adjunct Faculty; and John Hale, architect and owner of Hale Design Studio.
The Project Statement students addressed was a design for a School of Fine Arts. According to the Program, New York University had been given an endowment for the school, including funding to acquire and renovate a six story loft building near Washington Square. The University brief asked the Designer to create a building which was not only functional, but had a visual concept which would help establish the image of the school. The designer would also help to create the philosophical concept of an arts education.
