The experience

Two years. Five tracks. Real-world experience.

From the moment you set foot into first-year Boot Camp – even before Orientation – you feel part of a group of smart, talented, and deeply committed people from diverse backgrounds, all working toward a common goal.

The challenge

You'll work with professors who are industry leaders on assignments as tough as any you'll face, ever. The work will make you want to quit, but the friends you make and your determination to win will keep you going.

By the end, your work will be better than you ever thought it could be. You'll know dozens of industry leaders by name, and you'll have formed friendships that will last a lifetime.

The fun

Along the way, you'll have moments to enjoy a city known for creativity at all levels. From gallery openings and jazz festivals to street artists from all over the world, Richmond is a place to charge your creative batteries.

Whether you need the solitude of early-morning kayaking on world-class rapids or want to spend the evening at one of our dozen craft breweries with classmates, Richmond is a great place to be.

But don't get too comfortable. There's work to be done in the morning.
