About the Student Lecture Series

Each Spring and Fall Semester the student government sponsors a public lecture series that explores a pertinent theme in the practice of design. Guest speakers are carefully selected, and come from around the world to share their unique expertise. The Student Lecture Series is one of many ways that the BAC remains at the forefront of design education.
