Focus Week, Fall 2014!

Have an excellent Focus Week, students!

In case you don’t know what Focus Week is…
From the Dean of Students, Mark Takiguchi:
Each semester, the PNCA community engages in the all-College activity known as Focus Week, usually falling on Week 14 of the term. During this time, classes are suspended to allow faculty and students to fully engage in Thesis presentations and workshops. This is an opportunity to see the accomplishments of our Senior BFA Thesis students. Graduating seniors present their completed Thesis Projects to a panel of faculty, students and other members of the PNCA community. We also view the Thesis Proposals of the first term seniors, who present to a more informal panel of faculty and an audience of student and faculty members.
