From A-113 to the Wild Beast: View the 2018-19 CalArts Dictionary

Before another school year begins at CalArts—New Student Orientation begins on Sept. 2 and classes start on Sept. 10—we wanted to call attention to some of the shorthand and nicknames used around campus.

For example, when someone talks about “BB3” at CalArts, they’re referring to Butler Building #3 and not BB-8’s sibling droid from the Star Wars franchise; or that the “Wild Beast” or “Beast” refers to the indoor-outdoor amphitheater on campus.

We’ve added to and updated the CalArts Dictionary (slideshow posted above), a glossary of terms that are unique to the Institute. We’ll add to the list so if you have a contribution to the dictionary, please leave it in our comments section below.
