Design Discovery Summer Program

Jun 14-20, 2020 Cancelled

The 2020 Summer Design Discovery Camp has been cancelled. Please check back next year.


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, the Design Discovery summer program offers High School students an introduction to the design profession. Our one week program allows you to 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.

Admission Requirements

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

Program Options

We offer two options for you to choose from:

Option 1: One week residential

This option 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: $950 and fees includes tuition, housing, breakfast lunch and dinner, and materials.

Option 2: One week day camp

This option allows you to experience the one-week studio environment without staying in the university dorms. This includes all the same projects, lectures, and the field trips as the one week residential.

Cost: $650 and fees includes tuition, lunch and materials
