Student Organizations

When you get involved, you get inspired. That’s why we encourage everyone to take part in DAS’s student-led organizations. Remarkably active and connected to the world of design and with other student groups, these organizations—as well as other teams, clubs and groups affiliated with the Faculty—can ensure that you make the most of your time here.
