As most of you know, people who graduate from the Altos de Chavón School of Design are considered Chavoneros. The students that come to Chavón love what they do and they love it so much that they are willing to spend sleepless nights in order to finish assignments set to them by the talented teachers they have here in Chavón.
Chavón School of Design has spent two years preparing a project titled “Chavoneros” where they sat down and talked to numerous graduate students from over 30 graduate classes about their experience here. They have recently been posting some of the videos of the series on their Facebook page, Altos de Chavon/La Escuela de Diseño and in their youtube channel, Escuela de Diseño Altos de Chavón. Below you’ll find one of the videos so that you can see how to this day these graduate students are very passionate about what they do and their time here.
