April 10, 2009 — The College of Media Arts & Design is a major participant in Drexel's annual Research Day, where hundreds of students from all Drexel colleges and schools showcase their research in poster presentations in the humanities, sciences and engineering. However, our students' research often looks different. Westphal students present digital media, film and video, dance performances, and different forms of design. Thursday, April 23rd is Research Day and we encourage you to come out to see the entire floor of the Daskalakis Athletic Center overflowing with impressive work from our students and from those of other Drexel schools from 11 AM-3 PM. After review by faculty judges, winners will be announced at a reception at 4:30 PM on the 23rd in the Great Court (Main Building). For more information on Research Day, click here.
While the DAK's floor is great for basketball, it presents many practical and design challenges in order to showcase the research presentations of over 500 Drexel students. This year, Graphic Design Professor Jody Graff and the Graphic Design Senior Design Group have worked with the Research Office to create a Research Day logo and improved environmental signage. Interior Design Professors Rena Cumby and Ada Tremonte worked with the Research Office on an improved layout for the exhibitions spaces on the DAK floor.
