Former Elsik fashion design student, Tommy Lu visited the Advanced Fashion Design class just before finals in December. Tommy is passionate about fashion, designing, sewing, sketching and anything else related to the fashion world. He has a natural gift for sketching designs and does so often in his spare time.
Two students have already been accepted and are trying to decide if it's the right school for them. Tommy showed them the classes offered and required at UNT and how the application process works. They asked him questions about classes, teachers, freshmen dorms, and other typical college life questions. Being able to ask a college student about college life was a really great experience for the students and those considering UNT have some very big decisions ahead if them!
