Every year, a select group of Full Sail graduates are honored for their impressive professional achievements and their commitment to the Full Sail community during the Hall of Fame induction ceremony. It’s the highlight of the Fifth Annual Hall of Fame Week, which kicks off this Wednesday and features dozens of panels featuring former grads and industry leaders, a free three-day Music Festival on the Backlot, and so much more. It’s definitely one of the most exciting weeks of the year.
Students can still RSVP to the guest speaker panels on Connect (but hurry, spots are filling up quick) and many of the panels will be made available for online students and the public to live stream. We’ll have daily event previews here on the blog later this week, but here’s a quick look below at some of this week’s upcoming highlights.
