Earlier this year, Full Sail launched a brand new Behind the Scenes tour offering visitors an in-depth look at our campus and curriculum. The monthly tour now includes more interactive programming, such as degree-specific workshops and info sessions on everything from financial aid to housing. It’s also a great way to explore our facilities from top to bottom, with campus tours running throughout the day.
One of the highlights of the new tour is the Hall of Fame Alumni Panel, presented by Full Sail’s Career Development department. Each month, they invite distinguished alumni and members of our Hall of Fame to contribute to the panel. During the hour-long presentation, these grads share personal insights and expertise gleaned from their time working in the industry. They cover topics such as how to make the most out of your time as a student, advice for breaking into the industry, and how to get (and keep) a job. The panel culminates with a Q&A session designed to give attendees a chance to steer the conversation based on their unique interests.
Our next Behind the Scenes tour is June 18, 2017. Visit us online to reserve your spot today.
