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 11:00am on Friday and our Orientation staff will help you get started!

Learning Disability Orientation

Learning Support Services Office offers an afternoon orientation program to incoming students with documented learning disabilities. These can include, but are not limited to, dyslexia, A.D.H.D., or an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
