The Office of Student Experience at CalArts provides a variety of student support and advocacy services, including career services, personal counseling, special events and activities, and student-sponsored clubs and organizations. 

The Office of Student Experience (OSE) also offers assistance to students with disabilities and addresses issues pertaining to student rights and responsibilities, including Title IX. Student Experience additionally seeks to assist students with transitions, from adjusting as a new student to the CalArts community to preparing for a career post-CalArts. The staff is dedicated to helping students deal with challenges and problems in all aspects of their lives.
