Pratt has officially launched its Alumni Association, allowing all degree-holding Pratt graduates to receive discounts and benefits at select Pratt facilities and New York City cultural institutions.
Among the key benefits Alumni Association members receive is a 15 percent discount on a membership to 3RD WARD, an art and design studio for creative professionals in East Williamsburg; 3RD WARD membership includes admission to courses, the use of photo studios, a professional wood and metal shop, a digital media lab, a jewelry studio, shared and private workspaces, and more.
The Alumni Association launch took place last month at 3RD WARD, where about 75 alumni networked over cocktails and light refreshments while enjoying music by DJ Derrick Adams (B.F.A. Art and Design Education ’96). They were also taken on guided tours of 3RD WARD’s 20,000-square-foot facility.
The Alumni Association offers other benefits to Pratt graduates, including a discount on courses given by Pratt’s Center for Continuing and Professional Studies, discounted membership at Pratt’s athletic center, and free entry to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum, Museum of Arts and Design, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Pratt’s Office of Alumni Relations staffed a table where graduates could log into and explore alumni.pratt.edu, get information about the new and improved alumni benefits and services, and enter a raffle for an iPad.
