4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Since I have been At CIA I can't say that any of my professors were unavailable for me when I need help. They are challenging when it comes to the goal of the courses. I feel like I am being prepared for the real world when I graduate.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far CIA has given options for internships that must be applied for. The quality of the employers are great. and are in the field of study that my degree is in.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I think in general you have be aware of your surrounding no matter where you are. It is always safe to walk around in numbers. and there are campus safety personal that can assist you.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I find the housing is nice somewhat expensive for what it is though.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am so happy that I am attending The Cleveland Institute of Art. Based on what I have experienced and learned right now a lot have doors have opened up for me. I already got a paid internship in my field of study at the LBrand Corporation in Columbus, Ohio. That alone is an learning experience in itself. Based on the classes that I have at CIA I feel that I have chosen the correct major.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Transportation can be good at times it depends all in the bus you go to. If you get on the health line its a possibility something weird or bad is going to happen to you.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties are very crowded and are mostly made up of Case's students instead of our schools.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Workload is very heavy and can be very stressful most of the times. Some professors are not very helpful or very pointless of being there.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Mostly everyone is very accepting to others background, sexual orientation and political beliefs. There are many different ethnicities however there is some that are rare to find.

2 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Thou there isn't any peer pressure that much on campus or in the dorms, a lot of the students do drugs. Alcohol being visible is very rare and is only scene in special events or in parties

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Overall is a great environment in campus and there haven't been recently no violent or sexual assaults in the schools. You can leave your materials(even expensive ones) out in the classrooms or work placed in campus and are highly expected to have nothing stolen. I feel comfortable being alone in campus with just the security guards there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Classes size are small which gives you more opportunity to know your classmates and professors. Some of the class style are fit for the subject matter you are learning or doing. Other students or classmates are generally helpfully and friendly towards one another. Campus is small enough to get around and get to class very easily. Some courses are very helpfully in improving your artwork or finding your artwork style. Some courses gives you a lot of insight of how create or use different materials, as well create or use different tools for your artwork. Some professors are helpfully on giving you insight but are usually there to give the assignment and just stand around.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school have a requirement of doing at least one internship.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The amount room we are provided is huge compare to many dorms. The living room spacing is great and kitchen is good amount of space. Getting hot water is always an issues and usually no hot water. Air conditioner is pretty hard to deal with and sometimes doesn't work as well as it intended to be. If you are sharing the dorm with someone there isn't much privacy at all. There is no stove and you are not allowed to use a hot plate.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have any Greek in our school.

1 College Sophomore

Athletics: We don't have any sports in our school, if so its just for fun not really for competition wise.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I would choose my school again because I enjoy the atmosphere is very enjoyable. Though the classes are very work heavy but it is all a good learning experience. I did improve my art skills that I thought I couldn't before. The school helps on developing ideas and researching on how to develop new ideas.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are extremely passionate about what they do and are always willing to help us push the boundaries and reach our highest potential. Class sizes are small making it a more personal experience and creating a greater bond between students and the professors and students and their fellow classmates. There is a wide variety of classes to take offering students possibilities to learn in many different departments.

Campus Housing: The dorms themselves are great. They are very new, spacious and have great things like private bathrooms, large drawing tables and a small kitchen area. However, maintenance is pretty slow, it takes a while for things to get fixed when you put a report in.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have very much enjoyed my experience here so far. The professors are incredibly helpful and help students reach their highest potential. There are so many opportunities to try new things and work in different departments and have experiences across a wide variety of majors.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: Our parties are for a certain type of person. They're really geared towards people who just want to chill out and eat pizza while watching movies, or the type that serve virgin jello shots. We only have one big part a year and that's the halloween party at the Jolly Scholar. It's super popular and people go all out with their costumes. There's drinks if you're 21+ and a DJ. They rent out the whole restaurant and it runs late. But honestly it's not my thing and I left after an hour to get ice cream with some friends.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are no parties and the ones that exist are just for students and some of their friends.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are amazing and the curriculum is thorough. The workload is extremely intense. Do not bother coming here if you don't want to be doing school work for 5+ hours a night minimum. This is not an exaggeration. This program is really, really hard and after your freshman year you have to have a C or higher in every class or else you have to retake it. That being said, I feel like all the work has made me a much better artist and you definitely get your money's worth. I also truly enjoy all of my classes. You just really have to love art and actually want to do it everyday. You really need to stay on top of your homework and classes.

The most popular study areas are the atrium, the library, and panera.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Super super accepting atmosphere. There's lot's of different people from different economic situations, religious backgrounds, LGBTQ+, etc. The only thing would be that the vast majority of the students and faculty are liberal. That's kind of why our school has an accepting atmosphere. So anyone who's mega conservative (and non-accepting of other people or ideas because of it) will be talked about in a less flattering light by students.
