Every corner you turn you will find someone of a different race or background. Black, white, Asian, Middle Eastern—CCS has them all. Religion isn't really something that comes into play at CCS. There are many students who practice different religions, and you may even discover one you've never heard of if you talk to enough people about it. Normally people keep that sort of thing to themselves, though. Not because they're ashamed or are made to feel censored, but because there are things that matter more than what religion someone is.

There also tends to be no segregation based on economic background. In fact, most times it's hard to tell since everyone is creative and artsy. Art kids have their own style, and it's pretty hard to tell if someone is financially well off or not, unless they have a Coach purse or drive a Maserati. More than 70 percent of students receive financial aid.

Gay Pride
The Gay/Straight Alliance (GSA) is composed of students, faculty, and staff. The main goal of this organization is to provide a forum for the CCS community to discuss gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) topics in a safe place. The group also organizes campus-wide events to provide educational opportunities on GLBT issues for the entire community.
Political Activity
The Student Government is the formal link between CCS administration and students, and it provides students a forum in which to voice opinions and concerns. Meetings are held twice a month. Student Government takes on special projects as necessary.
Minority Clubs on Campus
Black Artists Researching Trends (B.A.R.T.) focuses on the work of artists outside the mainstream. All students are welcome to join. The group sponsors lectures and local exhibits, and performs community service work.
