Campus Housing: nice dorms and college setting

Party Scene: Parties are practically non existent on-campus and as someone who doesn't take part in any, I don't know anything about where they really are.

Scholarships: The school provides a maximum scholarship of $40,000 for all four years if you do well. However, the tuition is about that much for a single year. Getting the scholarship is easy but other financial aid is not because you have to hunt.

Campus Housing: Great housing depending on the campus you're on. I prefer the Taubman campus to the housing in the ACB because I find it cleaner, safer, and more secure. The ACB housing has a lot more room though and it's a lot closer to most classes you'll ever take.

Off-Campus Dining: I've never actually eaten off campus so I can't answer these questions, but I know there are a good few restaurants around, specifically cultural ones.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life, sororities, or fraternities.

Local Area: There are some pretty cool things that the city puts on right around the campus that you've probably never heard of if you don't live in Detroit or aren't part of the artist community. The Ford campus is also surrounded by great museums and is right by downtown. The Taubman campus has nothing there though.

Health & Safety: The safety on campus is incredible because it's such a small school to begin with but there is also security everywhere. I feel like I have nothing to worry about, even when I'm standing outside in Detroit in the middle of the night!

Scholarships: In terms of receiving my scholarship and financial aid, it is a rather difficult process . Mostly due to the fact receiving one takes a long time, my suggestion is look outside of what the school gives you to receive scholarships.

Academics: I know going to CCS won't be a walk in the park - there will be all nighters pulled, and home work up to the ceiling, and bad days. But I think it's for the best that we know how it is in the real world, not like high school when you were babied each step you took. College is a whole other ball game.

Athletics: I've honestly never heard anything sports related mentioned.

Local Area: Detroit is pegged as this violent, broke, intimidating city - but since i've lived around Detroit, I could honestly say it isn't a bad city. It has a lot of festivals and things going on, and what I love the most is how multicultural it is!

Administration: I think they're the right amount of strict. It is a better school and they need to show that not only through our work but discipline as well.

Party Scene: I don't think most people in my school 'party' like normal college students do. I mean, we have magicians and geek week .. ?

Scholarships: It was sort of confusing at first becuase they weren't too specific on what needed to be turned in/done. But in the end it wasn't that bad.

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.
