During your visit, we invite you to spend some time with the Piers exhibition and see what some of the faculty, recent graduate students, and others associated with the Department are doing.

If you know any students who you think might be interested in this opportunity, please feel free to share this information forward. Any questions about the Portfolio Review can be sent to or reach us via phone at (250)-721-6562.
