February 17, 2016
5:30-7:30pm CST
IIT Institute of Design, 6th floor
350 N LaSalle St
Chicago, IL 60654

IIT Institute of Design students have the opportunity to solve real business problems, learn the fundamentals of design in a single foundation year, conduct research around the world with our global immersion program, and join a close-knit network of alumni in leadership roles at innovative organizations. You could too.

A great way to know if ID is right for you to meet the community. We invite you to join us for an evening cocktail reception, short presentations featuring students and faculty, campus tours, and information on how you can join our transcultural graduate program. We welcome prospective students and the curious to learn more about IIT Institute of Design and our role in the design community today.

RSVP to our open house where faculty and alumni will share the start-up stories of Vamonde and Filigree Suppers and how their experience at ID helped them get to launch.
