Through the fall 2019 Orientation Week, SVA welcomed more than 1200 students from 35 states (plus the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico) and 30 countries. Among the many scheduled Orientation events were a welcome luncheon for new students and their families; the presentation I am an Artist, by 3D Design Chair Kevin O’Callaghan highlighting iconic exhibitions created by SVA students; a frozen yogurt social hosted by Student Engagement and Leadership, and a comedy night featuring performer Eliot Chang. In addition to these cool events, new students also had the opportunity to enjoy other fun activities, such as karaoke, a movie and trivia night, drag queen bingo, museum trips and volunteer events. Here’s a photo slideshow from the week. Best of luck with the new school year!
