The Sophomore Review (TSR) is the final stage of your COMD foundational career. It is the culmination of work you’ve produced during your foundation years at City Tech (or as a transfer student), and I help the department understand your strengths and weaknesses.

The purpose of the Sophomore Review is to ensure that students are learning the skills required for successful completion of the BFA program, to evaluate academic and career advice, to assist students needing additional support, and to guide advanced students toward internship and scholarship opportunities.

It is a day in week 11 of your Communication Design II, COMD 2400 course when you will consult a COMD faculty about the progression of your COMD career.

The Sophomore Review is for ALL students completing Communication Design II, COMD 2400. Students will submit their online digital portfolios for review and then meet one-on-one with a faculty member for 10-15 minutes to present their Sophomore Portfolio. 

Important Guidelines

All students should be using the OpenLab platform to display their work. If you have not created an OpenLab Portfolio, please follow this video/post to build your portfolio.
