taught to think
Many students are taught specific facts pertaining to their chosen major or memorize countless facts to pass tests. The beauty of going to design school is you leave having learned how to think. We are armed with more than just a database of information, we are taught how to access, utilize and manipulate that database in order to solve a multitude of unique problems. This also sets us up to be successful leaders when working across a wide range of professions. To this end we can imagine a future where designers are making big differences in the world because we aren't simply affecting change in one arena, we are working to engage and design for a variety of systems at local and global scales.
