4 College Sophomore

Majors: My only advice is to try to apply as early as you can.

Administration is easy online, and there is staff available to help on campus

4 College Sophomore

Majors: You'll have to be at your best and a junior, But there's tons of internship and job opportunities available, all from known brands, Instructors are well experienced (still being in the work field and all) and cooperative. Computers and other equipment are all top notch. Workload though, is more easier for those who live on campus, which is unfortunate for me.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: To my knowledge we only have a gym, and attend sporting events at neighboring colleges

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Food is good and prices are reasonable, hours don't stay as late as they should though

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: People here are accepting Diversity to the point where we're always willing for cooperation, reaching out for those in need of friends, and just so polite

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't usually participate in night activities, but when I do, I go with friends who know their way around town.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: As a commuter, Im not entirly aware if anything bad happens at school, But the security does not allow anyone in campus without an campus Id.

4 College Sophomore

3 College Junior

Scholarships: i absolutely deplore the financial aid process. however, they make it easier for you by allowing a payment plan.

College Junior

Greek Life: I wouldnt know anything about greek life at CCS. There are no fraternities or sororities.

College Junior

Athletics: There are no sports at CCS. It's an art and design school.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: CCS is a dry campus, which means there can be no alcohol. The attendance policy is what i cant stand though. If you miss 4 class sessions, you automatically fail the class.

Off-Campus Housing: I like living off campus because of the freedoms that come with it. The pros are that the housing selections are very close to campus. I walk to my classes everyday. The cost is exponentially lower than living on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Although many think "artists" use drugs, I do not see much around campus. I personally do not believe anyone needs to be high to be creative and personally take that negatively towards those who think that way. The campus and student housing is dry which means no alcohol or drugs are accepted there. People always push the rules but I don't think it is a serious problem. I have yet to hear of any other drugs besides alcohol or marijuana.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: During warmer climates there is definitely more to do on campus. I think the best part of warm weather while at school is being able to sit outside in-between classes. Being able to take a brake by enjoying the fresh air is an easy stress reliever. Winter time can be a bit harsh but luckily all classes are no more than a 2 minute walk. Although there are not many activities offered on campus during the winter, off campus life in Detroit definitely makes up for it.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: This college really offers a diverse community. I would say a good thirty percent or more of this college are international students. I think its amazing that students come from all over the world to this school. It really opens my mind to thinking how lucky I am to be there. I do not think the community at this college is judgmental at all. Most students take in the chance to interact with everyone and building their connections.

CCS has something that you just can't get at another college or university. There's this feeling in the air, an energy, that makes you feel you finally belong. For the people who knew they were meant for greatness but never really fit in anywhere else, this is the school for them. Once you step foot on campus, you know that this is it. Your life changes. You're given opportunities that you wouldn't find anywhere else. 

Detroit itself is an eclectic city, and CCS is where the talent flocks to and where people come to look for talent. There are so many different experiences one can have here that it's hard to narrow it down into one description. You find your bliss here. You get to, and are heavily encouraged to, work on art 24/7. Yes, there are some liberal arts classes, but they make you well-rounded, and CCS gears those classes toward art-minded people. It's the best place for an artist or designer to go for their degree. You will see the most return on your investment. CCS graduates are in high demand.
