Student Ambassadors

CIA Student Ambassadors welcome you to campus!  As current students at the Cleveland Institute of Art, they have inside knowledge of what life is really like at CIA. They're available to speak with you at our virtual webinars, campus tours, in-person events, and through email.

Nasir Redenburg

Nasir Redenburg

Title Student Ambassador

Hi, my name is Nasir Redenburg. I am a sophomore at CIA, majoring in Illustration. I will be graduating in 2024. I have been a Student Ambassador since May 2021 and I was the first freshman ambassador so I'm proud of that. My favorite memory at CIA is meeting my roommate and really clicking with them on the spot. Another one was watching the Illustration BFAs. They inspired me and got me excited to get into my major even more.

Natalie Russell

Natalie Russell

Title Student Ambassador

Hey, my name is Natalie Russell (she/her)! I am a sophomore majoring in Photography and I will be graduating in 2025. While there are so many to choose from, I would have to say my favorite memory at CIA has been getting to try glassblowing for the first time. One thing I love about this school is that there are so many different resources available to the students. I would have never thought four years ago I would be blowing glass or making a four-foot-tall sculpture out of cardboard!

Chris Sitney

Chris Sitney

Title Admissions Ambassador

Hi I’m Chris (he/him). I am a caring and outgoing person who always has others best interests at heart. I love cinematography and will always be down to watch a movie if you ask. People always say put yourself before others but sometimes others might need more support than you do so I say make it an even split for both yourself and others.
