It is an exciting time to be involved at Ringling College of Art and Design! Many years of planning, dreaming, hard work, and incredible donor support have brought us to a point of growth and evolution. We have a record number of freshmen students this current academic year, and we continue to watch our students grow, learn, and reach their professional goals. Wouldn’t we all like to enroll this next fall?
I invite you to come to campus to see the Goldstein Library, the Basch Visual Arts Center or our Ringling Soundstages and Post Production Studio. Each is truly changing the face of our campus. The fabulous architectural designs represent what many of us have known for a long time—Ringling College is truly a place for creatives to be inspired, educated and prepared to go out and change the world in each of their own special ways. I encourage you to come see what is happening on our campus. The energy and excitement are obvious from the moment you arrive. If you aren’t in our area, make sure to visit our website (www.ringling.edu) to see these new spaces for growth, creativity and dialogue that we are fortunate to see coming to life on a daily basis.
Thank you to all who have given to support the growth of Ringling College not only through new buildings but also through scholarships. Our students, faculty and staff appreciate what you have done. We are pleased to announce the new Masterpiece Scholarship Program. Once fully funded, the Masterpiece Scholarship ensures full tuition every year for the selected student. This is just one of the many ways scholarships can be created that can literally change lives.
