Design Showcase is a premier event for the College of Architecture and Design community. Select members of the student body are invited - based on academic performance and design skills - to exhibit their best work alongside professional work submitted by the CoAD alumni. It is an annual affair in April that combines continuing education lectures, vendor exhibits, exhibit of selected student and alumni professional work, and reception in a fundraising event to support the programs and students of CoAD.

Design Showcase was begun in 2006 as a fundraising and networking event that would gather students, faculty, alumni and vendors in a collegial and congenial setting for the purpose of mutual appreciation. Alumni meet students, catch up with former classmates and faculty members, discuss career and business opportunities, and learn about new developments at the College. Following the program a reception is held where all mix in a festive setting over great food and drink.
