We hope you’ll be able to stay for a bite to eat and drink as our thanks for your time and commitment to meeting with students. You’ll have the chance to meet and network with other reviewers, academic department heads, faculty and RISD senior administrative leadership.

Companies that would like to conduct formal interviews with selected students for current openings are encouraged to attend the Interview Day.
