About Bootcamp

Pizza kick off… On July 31st, Sunday night before Bootcamp Day 1, there will be a pizza-and-drinks-powered event on the Lower Level, University Center, 13th Street and 5th Avenue. You will meet your incoming first year peers, your incoming second year Bootcamp faculty, and professors Anne Gaines (AMT Dean), Sven Travis (MFADT Director), and David Carroll (Bootcamp Director). You’ll learn your sections and meet your Bootcamp classmates. You’ll learn your schedules, get your pictures taken, and eat pizza! This is a great time to socialize, ask questions, and hit the ground running!

Bootcamp attendance is not optional…
All incoming MFA Design and Technology candidates are expected to attend the three week Bootcamp pre-orientation intensive. Exceptions must be approved by the program director in advance.

Pizza fridays…
Depressurize at the end of every Bootcamp week on Fridays! We will have pizza at 5:30pm on D12, and have invaluable talks from luminaries of the DT community.

Say hello to D12…
Been to MFADT’s sprawling home yet? Join your peers during lunch and after 6pm on D12, the 12th floor of 6 E 16th Street between 5th Ave and Union Square. D12 is a place to get help, connect, and unwind. Your bootcamp classes may not be located on D12, but you will spend the majority of your time here when the semester begins.

What DT students are capable of…
For starters, visit Between Spaces, the thesis website of MFADT 2016. The second-year thesis exhibit is one of the culminating activities of the program, and showcases MFADT at its best. Check out what your peers are doing in Bootcamp and what they worked on before coming to MFADT.
