5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone at CCAD is accepted. That's one of the great parts about this school.

Health & Safety: The private security staff on campus does a great job keeping us safe. I have never felt at risk on our campus.

Campus Housing: Living on campus as a freshmen really builds a foundation for your social life at CCAD. Being involved and getting to know the other residents makes adjusting to your college life much easier. Schottenstein is a great building for that, DSA tends to be more independent and less community driven.

Overall Experience: I've loved my time at CCAD. Though the work load is difficult, I've never second-guessed my decision to come here. It was definitely one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Overall Experience: The amount we pay I feel isn't used wisely, other than that and the food I have nothing to say.

Health & Safety: We're right in downtown columbus, so any trouble that comes our way is usually from outer forces and not from the student body. Weren't they gonna make a quick clinic though? Cmon CCAD, give us the clinic or give us the POD back!

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm a 2nd semester junior, so I'd like to think I've been here long enough. I've been attending summer and saturday classes at CCAD in high school as well. I've seen the campus change, sometimes for the better. The teachers are wonderful and are always willing to help you. The classes, mostly, are engaging. I just wish they would take my suggestions for putting more vegetables in the tuna salad at the cafe seriously. We used to have tomatoes and cucumbers and carrot shavings in it. Now there's just lettuce and tuna. What is this? This isn't tuna salad. This is tuna lettuce. I'm outraged.

Overall Experience: There's a lot of good opportunities for jobs, internships, and other various things during and after school. I need to get on that.

Athletics: We have some work out areas in the dorm areas, but nobody really cares about that sort of thing. It's an art school.

Overall Experience: I'm curious to know where half our money goes. The teachers and the courses help make up for the uncertainty. I've learned a lot and have made good friends here. It's a great place for creative minds to gather and discuss ideas and projects.

I like the soup here a lot. The tuna needs more vegetables though.

Health & Safety: The campus police are very approachable and nice. They will walk you to your car at night if you don't want to be alone.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The biggest class I had so far had at most 19 students. For the core classes you will meet someone in a different major than you. Okay Vis Lit, this is the one course that almost the entire campus has to take and hates. Its an okay course for artist that has no background in digital art but for everyone else they know how to use photoshop and illustrator and maybe InDesign. There's two parts to the class and you have to pass Vis Lit 1 to go into 2. But if you're one of those people that rather not step foot into that classroom there is an online course available.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm going to be honest, when the school does job fairs or artist talks there is virtually no representation for the animation field. Since the Fashion and Industrial Design are the heaviest on campus there are more chances for internships or artist/ professionals in that field to come. If someone in the animation or illustration profession come its something that is extremely attended and worth to go.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There's two gyms at this school. One is located in the Schott dorm basement and the other is located in the Design Square 1st floor across from the elevators. The Schott's gym is almost always in use, there's about 3 treadmills, a cycle/step machine and a weight lifting area. I've never been in the Design Square one since its only for the residents for that dorm but it has the same stuff and maybe have a little more area.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Between studying and not stressing out, the school does its best to have somewhat a monthly week long event/s to help the students unwind and relax. I would recommend any incoming students to not to worry about grades too much. Like if you had a bad grade on an assignment, the teacher will most likely allow to re-do it for a better grade.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There aren't any sports at this school, but there is a gym that is offered in the dorms if needed to work out.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My overall experience so far is very different than what I expected it to be. I'm still working on my time management and adjusting to the school's technology.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: In my opinion the more demanding the professor, the better the results. Not many are like that but they are there.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Internships and working once one graduate's is a ongoing conversation among students and faculty.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's very expensive for what it is, but it's still very good.

Athletics: Non existing. There's "fitness groups" which don't really do much and the school does provide gyms in the residential buildings. Other than being mindful of what you eat, our school doesn't really pay attention to athleticism or any sports for that matter.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a good school overall. Some professors aren't the most qualified or motivated to be teaching certain classes, and most of them are not very demanding. However, my learning experience so far has been very educational.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is the best school for those with a passion for any kind of art.
