College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't know. i usually just go home after class

4 College Senior

Nightlife: At the heart of Detroit, The College for Creative Studies is surrounded by all aspects of culture and entertainment. An array of entertainment is available for just about any walk of life.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: It's in the heart of the arts district in Detroit. There's some clubs and interesting venues, and tons of cultural events, as well.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Nightlife is for people with cars and usually for people of age of 21 or older. There are no places walking distance where you can get access to nightlife things in general. However, regardless of being a dry campus, some people do drink in their dorms. This school, teaching and training students for specific and specialized skill set, will keep their students busy at most time. A particular night of a student during week and on weekend would be homeworks, overnight homeworks, and projects. The city of Detroit, well known for its infamous dangers is not as bad, but misbehavior and curiosity of what we call "sketchy allies" may possibly get people in trouble.
