In creating studio spaces for nearly 2,000 students, our primary focus is to foster collaboration across our diverse design, media and art disciplines. Westphal offers spaces where students can see what their classmates are creating; where making labs can be shared by students from many majors; and where spontaneous and formal interactions take place daily yielding creative connections –– as opposed to similar programs at other Universities that are housed in isolation by themselves. One of the core fundamentals of a Westphal College education is the active, hands-on learning we provide in the studio environment – but not just any studio. We want our students to transform these studio spaces into their own. Please explore "Making Spaces" and see how our students utilize the cutting-edge equipment and technology that gives them significant advantages in their professional careers.
