DAAP Slap’d students graduate a week from today

A group of students from UC’s internationally acclaimed College of Design, Architecture, Art & Planning put together a comical music video on their lives as DAAP students. The video entitled “DAAP Slap’d” shines a light on the lives of the students who spend much of their lives inside DAAP over the course of their college career.

Last year at this time, I too was stuck inside the Aronoff Center for Design & Art as I finished my thesis research paper on urban design and its impacts on sociological patterns, and readied my DAAP Works presentation.  Students who attend the College of Design, Architecture, Art & Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati know very well the rigors of the studio-based curriculum that places the college among the best design schools in the world.

This time next week the next round of students will complete their DAAP journey as they walk in their respective graduation ceremonies held at UC.  In the mean time, take a quick glimpse into the DAAP Slap’d lives these students live.  The video is quite comical and fun to watch.  Enjoy!

If you liked this song, you might also want to check out Poolside’s Don’t Stop and Pull Me Under singles.  After further investigation it appears that Poolside has a slew of songs, does live performances and even has its own label.  Not sure what the full story is here, but it’s worth checking out:
