Launching In-Person! FA21 Orientation

The MDes program is so excited to announce that we have officially launched in-person for the first time! After spending the inaugural semester learning remotely, it was invigorating to have both the SP22 and FA22 cohorts meet on campus and go through orientation together (following UC Berkeley COVID-19 policies).

Not only were students able to meet each other face-to-face, they were also able to meet the faculty, staff, and associates of the MDes. Over the course of two days, the cohorts received their basic makerspace trainings, toured Jacobs Hall, learned about student life from the MDes Student Association, went on a scavenger hunt around campus, and had lots of time to start getting to know each other.

The students have just finished their first few weeks of classes, and are off to a running start. After a long wait, we are thrilled to feel such vibrant energy from being together and can’t wait to see what comes out of it! This is certainly an orientation for the history books.
