The College of Design wants you to have a successful transition to Iowa State University! To help with this transition, we require all new students to participate in either the Design Exchange or Design Collaborative learning communities in the first year. New international students have the opportunity to participate in the Global Design Connection. Multicultural students will be invited to join B.U.I.L.D., which provides an opporutnity to work with an upper-level student mentor once the fall semester begins. Landscape Architecture students will be a part of the Savanna Studio once they enter the major in the fall of their second year.
