"I can point to my studio art classes at Marywood University as the best experiences of my undergraduate career. The fostering of trust, independence, and camaraderie between the professors and students at Marywood prepared me for further artistic pursuits and a professional degree."

Your visual journal is a personal creative book that enables you to personalize and document your discovery, development, and educational journey. Include:
- Sketches and rough ideas
- Composed, finish artwork
- Notes and questions
Your journal should reflect your personality and interests. It should tell others what you're about, what grabs your attention, and what you have independently researched and discovered on your own, both in and out of class.
