Welcome Week Party 2021
This year ID’s Orientation Week had special meaning—for some of us, it was the first time we had seen each other, in person, in over a year.
New and returning students met and reunited with ID faculty, staff, and fellow students. Through ice-breaking activities, presentations, and parties, ID community members enjoyed opportunities to learn about ID’s many offerings, including practiceID, careerID, and IDSA, the Institute of Design Student Association.
Per university COVID reopening guidelines, masks were required inside the Kaplan building. Portions of Welcome Week were livestreamed and recorded for those who could not make the sessions in person.
