Without LiNK, I don’t think I would have ever come across a program quite like this one. I’m so grateful to have found the right school without all of the added stress.”


Attending LiNK means you share one roof with more than 50 graduate schools over the course of three days. Spend your time interviewing, showing off your portfolio and resume, and making connections with potential schools without having to expend travel costs and time. “I can’t speak highly enough about my experience at LiNK,” said LiNK 2018 candidate Jenni Propst. “While I did ultimately choose a school I’d already had on my long list of programs I was considering, seeing them side by side and having so many programs to talk to really cemented my decision. The location and experience was fantastic, and much more cost effective than visiting half a dozen schools.”
