CCA offers a unique advising structure for first-year students that is integrated into the First Year Program. This structure is designed to provide students with tools for navigating their academic path at CCA.
First Year Program Advising
Students are assigned a First Year Program advisor in the fall after the add/drop period. First Year advisors are faculty members who teach in the First Year Program. Whenever possible, students are assigned an advisor who teaches one of their Core Studio Courses in order to connect students more quickly with faculty and to fully embed them into the CCA community.
Academic Advising's Reconnoitre Week is February 18 - 23, a week of events to help First Year students explore their direction and gain the tools and guides necessary to enter into their major. Reconnoitre week events include FY Bridge Workshops, Majors Exposed, and the Undeclared workshop Major Maps.
Bridge Workshops will be held at 3pm on 2/18, 3pm & 7pm on 2/19, and 7pm on 2/20. All workshops are held in Nahl Hall.
Jump into Reconnoitre Week with Bridge Workshops, where you will be connected with resources, outfitted with essential knowledge, and prepared for the year ahead. Bridge Program Advising Videos can be viewed here by major.
Jewelry / Metal Arts
Writing and Literature
The Major Resource Fair will be held February 21st & 22nd in the Oliver Art Center on the Oakland Campus. The fair will be opening from 11 - noon, and 3 - 4 p.m. both days.
Making connections with instructors and fellow students in your major is one of the most critical aspects of your time at CCA. This is where it all begins. Start to find your bearings in your declared major or get perspectives from multiple majors if you're still charting your path.
Come meet faculty, learn about the programs on campus, and see work from instructors and students involved in the program. Raffles and give-aways will happen every hour.
Major Maps will be held February 23rd at 10am in A2 cafe Oakland.
Major Maps is the final event of Reconnoitre Week, a workshop specifically for UNDECLARED students. Major Maps aims to help you draw up the connections between your strengths and interests to find your path at CCA while selecting a major.
