Meet Industrial Design student Nash Escalada

My name is Nash Escalada. I’m from Whitby, Ontario, and I’m currently in my fifth year of industrial design. I was never really the kid that liked math or science, I was always the kid that drew in class. And I remember, actually one time I got in trouble for drawing in class, and I find that pretty funny, now that I’m studying industrial design and I’m getting into a career where I’m gonna get paid to do that type

Reconceptualizing the Value of Liberal Arts Education | David Banash | TEDxWesternIllinoisUniversity

Translator: Tanya Cushman Reviewer: Peter van de Ven We live in a really strangely remarkable time where everything is possible, right? Everything is possible.

Wake Forest University Student Art Buying Trip

And I think that’s one of the most fascinating things about this. Is that from the ’60s forward, every trip tells a story about where America was at that point in time and where our students were at that point in time. And now as we get–
