Accepted Student Day

What is Accepted Student Day?

Accepted Student Day is held each spring to welcome newly admitted students to Ringling College. During the event, students have the opportunity to meet faculty and future classmates.

Ringling College of Art and Design is a special place. A place where students from around the world come to learn from creative minds who are leaders in their fields. A place that prepares you to turn your passion for creativity into a successful career. A place where you’ll work hard. A place where you’ll be challenged. But also a place where you’ll have the time of your life. A place to meet your best friends. A place to find yourself. A place to grow. We’re home to a new generation of creative visionaries.
