BIG ORANGE FOR A WEEK

Design Matters! Camp is hosted by the UT College of Architecture and Design in its award-winning building in the heart of Big Orange Country.  It provides an immersive experience in both design instruction and college life for motivated students who want to learn about design in the built environment and the considerations that shape it.  Register today at archdesign.utk.edu/design-matters-camp. 

WHERE WILL I STAY?  WHAT WILL I DO?

Students stay in one of the well-appointed residence halls on UT’s campus, and during the week, they will be engaged in a variety of activities that challenge their thinking about design, hands-on instruction in design, field trips to area locations for design interpretation and activities on the UT campus.  Students will learn more about design thinking and the many career options open to graduates with design degrees.  The camp concludes on Friday, July 15, with a celebratory lunch for campers and their families.
