Design Discovery Summer Program

Jun 25-30, 2018

So you’re thinking about becoming a designer? Whether it’s Architecture, Industrial, or Interior design, the UL Lafayette’s School of Architecture and Design, Design Discovery summer program offers High School students an introduction to the design professions. Our one week program allows you be immersed in a college experience that includes on-campus dorm rooms, meals, field trips to professional design firms, lectures, and hands-on projects introducing you to the world of design. By immersing you in design and having you engage with faculty and current undergraduate and graduate students, our goal is to instill you with the confidence to pursue your design education.

This enrichment program offers perspective design students an opportunity to actively engage in real college experience. The program is the first step to allow students to explore potential future careers by providing a glimpse into the academic expectations in a college setting. The program will run for one week. Students will have the option for an on campus living experience or a day camp experience.

Admission Requirements

The program accepts all high school students entering their sophomore, junior or senior year of school or students entering their freshmen year of college. All students must have a GPA of 2.4 or higher.

Program Options

We offer two options for you to choose from:

Option 1: One week residential

Option 1 is a fully immersive experience where you will stay on campus in our university dorms, eat three meals a day in our student union, and attend design studios, lectures, and field trips. Great way to get the full University experience.
Cost: $1050 and fees includes tuition, housing, breakfast lunch and dinner, and materials.

Option 2: One week day camp

Option 2 allows you to experience the one week studio environment without staying in the university dorms. This includes all the same projects, lectures and field trips as the one week residential.
Cost: $750 and fees includes tuition, lunch and materials
