Experience is everywhere…

It comes in the form of conventions, sports, weddings, festivals, parties, street fairs, product launches, town halls, fundraisers, and meetings just to name a few. Experiences cross all people and all industries around the world. 

This uniquely crafted journey, The Experience Experiment, will take select students through an immersive, 8-week curriculum exploring the strategy, design and production processes of building a successful event experience.  This team of students will learn and implement all aspects of event strategy & experience design leading up to the final project – a new & exciting event for the campus community.
