Adopt a Family

The Fashion Department’s Adopt-A-Family program offers a unique opportunity for Otis Fashion Design students and graduates to build a professional network. The “family” includes an Otis Fashion alumn, a Senior, a Junior, and a Sophomore student who can interact with each other to exchange information and develop professional connections. Building a network can take years. Developing a support system early on offers many advantages that can be mutually beneficial for the career growth of all “family members.”
