On Saturday, April 15, CalArts welcomed newly accepted students, friends, and families to campus for a day of information sessions and informal meet-and-greets. Gone were the winter rains; the spring California sun and moderate temperatures greeted guests who traveled from the Los Angeles area, from across the country, and from around the world. The day marked the return of the event in-person for the first time since 2019.
President Ravi Rajan opened Accepted Student Day with help from the Enrollment Management team including Chevonne Totten-Garner, executive director, and Michael Elgarico, vice president. The Student Experience team, with a few current students, discussed student life and available resources during a Q&A at the morning gathering.
Sessions on financial aid for graduate and undergraduate students followed; and after lunch, students and their guests heard from representatives in their specific schools and programs.
