A component of UMass Dartmouth's Fall Open House, Portfolio Day review sessions are highly recommended for students entering an undergraduate studio arts program in the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Review sessions provide applicants with an opportunity to sit down with faculty and talk about their work and their aspirations for their future. During these sessions faculty members critique students' work, identify the accomplished work and indicate areas in which students might improve their overall portfolio presentation. The sessions are tremendously beneficial and allow both students and faculty an informal opportunity to make meaningful connections.
