Congratulations on your decision to study at the Cleveland Institute of Art. The International Student Office exists to serve you, and we will work closely together from your first day on campus until your graduation day. We are very excited to welcome you as a new member of our campus community, and we look forward to your arrival!
As an international student, we recognize your concerns about adjusting to cultural, social, and academic changes. Lori Brindisi, the international student advisor, is available Mondays - Thursdays to help you through these adjustments. The office also sponsors cultural and social activities to help you build friendships on campus and explore Cleveland. In addition, there are many opportunities to get involved on campus, make connections, and develop leadership skills.
