3/27/2019 Nancy 0 Comments


Each year, second year BICsters take a break from classes to participate in a full week of BIC Portfolio Bootcamp. From March 18th - 21st, the Class of 2019 worked intensely on their portfolios with the help of visiting professionals who provided design, content, and storytelling expertise. Nights were themed around a topic such as User Experience, Craft, Dynamic Content, and Troubleshooting -- as well as dinner: Italian, Indian, BBQ, and Breakfast.

Our professional mentors offered invaluable expertise and next-level feedback giving BIC students all the insider tips, trick, and tools they'll need to perfect their portfolios for what we expect will be standout presentations on Portfolio Thesis Defense day May 28th. We were especially excited to welcome back some BIC alums who are now successful pros -- and truly know how to bring a BIC portfolios to life.
