College Spotlight: Cleveland Institute of Art

For the truly artistic student looking to balance creativity and liberal studies, the Cleveland Institute of Art is definitely a school to consider. The CIA (yes, that is what they call it) has 16 majors to choose from, and although you don’t need to declare a major until after your foundation year (1st year), once you do you get a dedicated studio space! Established in 1882, this school is consistently ranked in the top five for design in the country and has a terrific location. It is situated in the University Circle area of Cleveland, and is next to both the Cleveland Museum of Art and Case Western Reserve University. The CIA has agreements with 23 other institutions where students can take one free class per semester. Interested in checking out CIA? Click here.

Don’t Let Summer Pass You By!

You can learn more about this at your local library. Take advantage of the down time to up your game. You will be glad you did.
