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!
While many think of the summer as a time to relax, hit the beach and do anything but something academic, summer is the best time to explore potential academic majors and careers. 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.

Did You Know?
Want to be more likely to remain at college through graduation? Who doesn't? Then you should work with an IECA member college counselor, like College Search Navigators' Michelle and Diane!! IECA is recognized for setting the standards for professionalism, ethical behavior and training. All members must have a master's degree, demonstrate experience, submit references, and visit dozens of college campuses. An IECA membership is a symbol of quality in a sea of wannabees.
"The easiest decision I made during the college admissions process was hiring College Search Navigators. I could not imagine having to go through this process alone. During the school year, I had a very busy schedule. They worked with me all Spring and Summer to free up my Fall. Thanks to College Search Navigators, my journey to college was a smooth and successful one! "Tom B., Class of 2014,
