5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from CCS is invaluable!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: College for Creative Studies is amazing. It has a strong reputation and presence in the global Art and Design field. Innovators and futurists come out of that school, and it's ranked #3 for after-college job success in your field.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I only ever walk on campus alone and i always feel safe. I only feel a little concerned going to my night class at the Ford campus because the Kresge building's security is at the back and there are no ID checks when entering the building due to it's odd structure, however, that is worry about outside people.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school experience has been pretty great, I like most of my teachers, the class sizes are perfect to me, the many classes we can take are nice, the teaching is effective and i am improving in my skills. That's all that is needed.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are always companies/ businesses reaching out to our school for people interested in a job there and lots of the alumni have gone to do great and famous things. The employers and our career center seem to be of good quality.

Overall Experience: It's a good experience so far, workloads can sometimes get hard to manage but I feel like I am learning everything I need to know and more and the faculty I've interacted with are helpful or easy to talk to. What makes it unique is that it is on the smaller side therefore students can get more one-on-one attention.

Health & Safety: The security on campus is pretty good. Other than normal college stuff I've never really heard about any other issues and I've always felt pretty safe here.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Overall I have greatly enjoyed attending the College for Creative Studies. I been going here for almost three years now and while here and there I find issues with either certain class or otherwise, they can be dealt with and my artistic mind and abilities have broadened, grown and have been challenged.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: As far as finding internships, teachers and other faculty members are willing and eager to help in whatever way possible. Networking is one of the biggest parts of campus life, and the career services office is very helpful in terms of helping you get ready for jobs and interviews as well as helping you find opportunities.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The housing at the college is alright, the dorms are bigger than what I've been told a normal dorm situation would be and while the ACB building is old, I find it very livable. Currently, there is construction throughout the building to update elevators and other issues.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There is no Greek life on campus at the College for Creative Studies, so there is nothing I could say on this that would apply.

3 College Junior

Athletics: At the College for Creative Studies there are no sports, it's a focused art school so unless a group of students gets together to create athletic activities, there are no official school sports. However, each campus provides a gym for on campus students.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I hardly ever hear of any crime, and if I do its very rare.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors and mentors will work one on one with you to help you achieve your true potential.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors and the Student Job Center will help you find internships and jobs, but you must be motivated and persistent.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: At the College for Creative Studies, what I knew coming into this school was challenged and my artistic abilities were put to the test. The intensive program helps us grow as an artist, enhance, explore and broaden my abilities.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are pretty nice, and you get a kitchen at the ACB which is wonderful for cooking.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Teachers are super helpful and will work one on one with you to help you grow and become a better artist or designer.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They ave security systems in place

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers know their stuff but each one teaches differently, so one semester you may have one teacher who is teaching his/her own level; then the next semester you have another teacher who has gone way beyond.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Although internships general go to Juniors/Seniors, they still have us work on our resumes as freshmen to prepare us.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I am lot living on campus seems fine

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't think there is a Greek life.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't think they have any sports teams

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's difficult because I also have to work 20-30 hours a week but I love it.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
