First, each of you will have 15 minutes to discuss your work and semester-long progress with a group of faculty. That is the only time you will be required to meet for Foundations next week. You will be assigned a time and an area number. Please come at least 15 minutes early to set up your work. When you arrive, go to the area with the number that you were assigned. It should be empty and ready for you to set up 15 minutes before your time. Please bring your laptop if you have one. If not you can use one that is in the studio.

Please check the blog for what each of your faculty has requested that you bring to the review. Please make sure to have everything that is requested. Faculty will have a checklist and will expect you to talk about the work you have created. Take some time beforehand to think about your strengths, how you have grown, and what you need to work on to improve. This information will help faculty understand your first semester experience and give more appropriate feedback.

Schedules will be available on the blog and posted in the studios. Reviews will be held on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 8 am until 11 am in the Cohen Studios.
