Cornish Connection Fall 2014
It is our pleasure to be one of the first to welcome you into the Cornish College of the Arts community! Cornish is a vibrant place to aspire toward your dreams, learn more about yourself and your art, create your own perspective of the world around you and bring thoughtful innovation to all you do as a student at Cornish and as a member of this community.
Cornish Connection is the first integral step of many that will help provide you with the information and resources you need in order to be successful here at Cornish as a student, artist and individual. We hope to provide you with ample opportunities to experience and explore Cornish campus life and the surrounding Seattle area. Cornish Connection will also be your first opportunity to join other incoming students in orientation groups led by our Orientation Leaders (OLs). The OLs will help you to build relationships with your peers and make lasting connections with the students who will be with you throughout your collegiate and artistic journey.
