Exchange Students for Study Abroad Panel: Monday, November 3rd from 12-1pm in Brown 413

From Cassandra Krumbholz, Assistant Director of Off-Campus Study, International Affairs:


We have partnerships with some fantastic colleges globally, and students who study abroad often grow as a person and as an artist, get to experience life in a new city, and gain invaluable new perspectives on their work.  However, it can be challenging to convince students to step outside their comfort zones and attend schools that bear little resemblance to MICA, academically or institutionally.  To that end, we have enlisted several of our exchange students to speak on a panel discussing their home institutions and answering student questions about their home countries.

The students come from a number of  our partner schools, including Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel, Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, LUCA School of Arts in Belgium, Hamburg University of Applied Science, Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and Konstfack in Sweden.  MICA students are eligible to attend each of these schools on exchange and also others (we have over 30 programs).

Exchange Students for Study Abroad Panel; Monday, November 3rd,  12-1pm, Brown 413

For the last few years I’ve been investing myself in the community and tracking my experiences at conventions, meet-ups and all types of furry events. I am interested in the furry community as a site of social transgression and intense identity construction. The community holds an important place in my own sense of identity, and I have taken it as my duty to construct an image that accurately represents the complexity and importance I have observed and experienced within it. …
