Most people here are very artsy types, obviously. Most have kind of fringe, less mainstream and sometimes grungy styles of dressing. Clothes that are torn, mismatching patterns, lots of black. Pretty much everyone listens to some non mainstream or indie music, wear piercings or dye their hair. While pretty much everyone takes up smoking (tobacco or otherwise), and there are some snobs, the average student is a very chill, kind, and creative person.

a person looking to enjoy Cleveland, the lake, the University Circle museums, the architecture, the nightlife and culture. And someone looking forward to a world class education in their art.

Someone who is open minded and gives off a friendly vibe. Being a school full of artists, we're very different from the rest of the world and do things different or in odd ways. Its best to walk in with a fresh, blank page of what to expect in your mind, and be generally open to everyone. Artists love opening up to people, so if you present the same concept to them, they will return it the same way or better.
