An Inside Look

What students are saying about us...

  • “I’ve learned a lot about the creative process and how to push myself as a designer through different classes. We have a lot of theory classes and history classes and other things I know I wouldn’t normally be learning outside of school. The professors at Endicott that pushed me to be better helped me become a stronger designer.”

    • Nicole Noonan
  • “My internship allowed me to gain hands-on experience where I was able to create my own assignments and become familiar with the classroom environment, which helped me when I began to teach college courses.”

    • Paige Greeley
  • “The rigid deadlines, especially in my studio classes, prepared me for the real world. While I was working through one stage of design, I was thinking about the next. This is a skill that has helped me tackle frequent deliverables and manage my time in my career.”

    • Sarah Narburgh
  • “The graphic design program is designed to be extremely interactive, making each day a new and exciting opportunity. Whether it be a hands-on demo, one-on-one feedback with your professor, or a group critique, the faculty push you to discover the talent within you while becoming confident enough to speak thoughtfully about your work.”

    • Olivia Crane
  • “We were required to take a portfolio class where we had to make a portfolio book, as well as an online gallery. This gave me an edge, because when I applied for jobs, I wasn’t just sending JPEG attachments of my work, I had a fully-functioning website that I was able to alter and update on my own.”
