Fall Orientation

You’ve already taken care of business this summer at StART—so now it’s time for the fun part! Fall Orientation is a mandatory two-day program that takes place when you move to campus in August. Orientation will help you adjust to college life and embark on the road to a profession in art and design.

During orientation, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Connect with student peers, faculty, and staff within the Institute
  • Explore academic and social possibilities that lie ahead
  • Orient yourself with campus surroundings, such as University Circle, Little Italy, and the many museums and cultural activities the area has to offer
  • Get acquainted with the people who run our school, including CIA’s president and dean of students
  • Learn from current faculty members about course expectations and living as a lifetime artist

You don’t need to sign up for Fall Orientation. Just show up at the assigned time and our Orientation staff will help you get started!

Contact Student Life

For more information, contact the Office of Student Life + Housing at 216.421.7429 or by email at studentlife@cia.edu.

The check in process for Fall new student orientation will begin on Friday, August 22. Students who will be commuting to campus may park in the JMC student parking lot located behind the JMC building (signs will guide you). More details regarding the schedule to come.
