Your participation in international student orientation will help you acclimate to life at CCA with greater ease.

International degree-seeking and exchange students are required to attend the international student orientation. International students then attend new student orientation together with all new first-year students, transfer and second-degree students, and graduate students.

Orientation provides specific information about F-1 and J-1 regulations, including on- and off-campus employment regulations, health insurance, counseling, academic advising, learning resources, campus technology, as well as additional resources for how to best adjust to life in the United States—particularly to CCA and the Bay Area.

(Note: U.S. federal regulations require all students on F-1 or J-1 visas attend.) Be sure to bring your passport with visa, and I-20 or DS-2019.

Artists create for the twenty-first century, Splendid Objects is an exhibition of new Bay Area craft curated by Kathleen Hanna, who defines craft as "a set of skills highly refined over time -- knowledge of materials and tools and a vision for the possibilities they offer."

She has chosen to show new works by 19 artists -- many of whom are among the CCA faculty -- of all the generations currently working in the Bay Area -- descendants of the postwar contemporary craft movement in California.

The work in this exhibition reflects what artists are thinking and doing in the new millennium.

Featuring work by: James Aarons, Sonya Lee Barrington, Carly Borman,Tripp Carpenter, Suki Diamond, Mateo Hao, Barbara Holmes, Evan Kolker, David Lewin, Suzanne M. Long, Jane McDonald, Allison McLennan, Gary Marsh, Mark Oldland, Leslie Podell, Jean Salatino & Steven Gandolfo, Pamina Traylor, and Mardi Wood
