Events
  • Artist Anna Craycroft, of the current exhibition Tuning the Room in Ben Maltz Gallery, in discussion with artist and curator Micah Silver.

  • Emily Thorpe's art work addresses the twisting formation of memory through spatial relations and moments of domesticity. She will be presenting a solo exhibition for her Graduate Thesis at The Bolsky Gallery, Otis College of Art & Design, on view February 20 to February 25, 2017. There will be a closing reception on Saturday, February 25, 6-9pm.

  • You can easily spot The Little Friends of Printmaking in a crowd—their inky hands and clothes are a dead giveaway. Their work is just as distinctive. JW & Melissa Buchanan first made a name for themselves through their silkscreened concert posters, but soon branched out into further fields, designing fancy junk for whoever would pay them money. In addition to their work as illustrators and designers, they've continued their fine art pursuits through exhibitions, lectures, and artists’ residencies, spreading the gospel of silkscreen to anyone inclined to listen.

  • "In publishers’ terms, Shock and Awe – a hefty, intellectual book about glam rock – is timely." - Jude Rogers, The Guardian

Curricular Practical Training

CPT Overview

Curricular Practical Training (CPT) is an off-campus employment option available to F-1 students when the training (i.e. internship or employment) is considered an integral part of the established curriculum and directly related to the student’s major. “Training” refers to paid or unpaid work/study experience, internships, or cooperative education.

CPT must be renewed each semester

CPT approved for part-time (20h or less per week) or full-time (20+ hours per week).  Full-time CPT granted for summer semester only.

  • Students who use 12 full months of full-time CPT become ineligible for OPT under US immigration law.
