saa Open Houses provide a casual, open forum for learning more about SAA without an appointment or interview. Prospective students, their families, and friends are invited.
At our Spring Open House on March 16, find out why SAA graduates are in such high demand. Our 93%* job placement rate speaks for itself. SAA graduates have what employers in the field are looking for – excellent skills in graphic design, illustration, Web design, photography, and video. At the Spring Open House, meet industry-leading design professionals, and discover why they choose to hire SAA graduates. Take a tour of the college, meet students, and learn about financial aid and scholarships.
Meet alumni Bree Crum of ModCloth, along with her employer. [Click here to view a video of Bree.] Have a portfolio review, or bring just a few pieces of artwork and get advice on how to complete a portfolio.
Discover why SAA has such a strong reputation with employers, and how you can explore your passion for design and prepare for an amazing career.
Already planning to attend SAA this fall? Several apartment communities are offering tours for new students and their families on Open House day. You can stop in at SAA, drop off your scholarship competition entry, schedule your financial aid appointment, meet other new students, and then check out some nearby apartments.
*Over the last six years, 93% of graduates eligible for career services [257 of 276] gained employment in the advertising field.

Interviewing at an Open House
While we recommend scheduling a college visit and interview while class is in session, we realize that this may not be possible for some students. As a convenience, we welcome you to bring samples of your work and your high school and/or college transcript to an Open House, and you may be accepted on the spot. The samples can include drawings, paintings, computer art, sketchbooks, and/or photography. Most students bring 8–10 pieces, but feel free to bring fewer or more.
