The Student Experience at CalArts

Congratulations again on your acceptance into CalArts!​

We are excited to welcome you to our Online Accepted Students Event. While we are not able to host you on-campus, we have been hard at work to create a virtual way for you to experience CalArts.

Welcome to our creative community.


Students at CalArts talk about being accepted into the community, life on campus, and offer a few words of advice to new students.
