MY CCAD: September 13, 2016

MY CCAD EMAILS

BRING YOUR FAMILY TO SCHOOL

CCAD Family Weekend is coming up on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1. Don't forget to tell your family members or other supporters and RSVP here

 

AND NOW A WORD FROM THE PRESIDENT

Welcome to and back to CCAD! Now that you’ve got two weeks of the semester under your belts, I hope you’re all settled in and enjoying your classes. 

Whenever I meet with new faculty and staff, I tell them that CCAD is the best place to work because all of the students really want to be here. I remind them that nobody’s mom ever made them go to art school! So, I’m taking this moment to remind you of that as well. You have the opportunity to do what you love every single day, and I hope you’re taking advantage of that — soaking up every moment in the studio, spending quality time with your faculty and fellow students, and participating in numerous CCAD events, activities, and organizations. Don’t forget to sleep and eat, call home, pay your bills, go to the dentist twice a year, but mostly focus on creating. Focus on doing everything you can to ensure that this is just the beginning of an inspiring and creative life.
 
It’s been wonderful to see many of you at the various “welcome” events, and I look forward to getting to know you all better throughout the year. Don’t hesitate to stop me and say hello when I’m walking across campus or having lunch in The Market, and stay tuned for some opportunities to meet with me later this fall.

Dr. Melanie Corn
