annual Portfolio Review Day 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Wednesday, July 16 at the
Community Theater of Greensboro, 520 S. Elm St., Greensboro. The

Portfolio Review Day will showcase the work of approximately 30

opportunity to network with the community and potential employers
in the advertising and graphic design industry including local
designers, advertising agencies and printer companies.
"For the students, it's an opportunity to make a connection, which
could lead to possible employment," said Awilda DeJesús, assistant
professor of advertising and graphic design at GTCC. "For the
department, it allows us to showcase what our program is all about.
It also helps us keep up with industry standards by listening to
what the professionals are saying."
GTCC's Advertising and Graphic Design program was one of the
original 12 programs when the college opened in 1958. Its annual
Portfolio Review Day has been in existence since the 1960s.
