Columbus College of Art and Design Top Questions

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!


We're a small school, so everyone knows everyone else. This really establishes a strong community early on. Having to room in the freshman dorms introduces everyone and creates lasting friendships and relationships.


The school offers exactly what I want. They have an amazing staff with expierence in each subject they teach. CCAD is one of the top 10 art schools in the country with a 94{4a082faed443b016e84c6ea63012b481c58f64867aa2dc62fff66e22ad7dff6c} job rate after graduation. They supply resources for everything a college student needs to start figuring out how to get a job in the major they are working on. CCAD is small and therefore personal, you are not just a face on campus, the teachers get to know you and help you.


I have not compared this school to any other schools, I just knew it offered what I was looking for, and it is local. Being retired, I do not need to live in a dorm.


What seperates CCAD from other schools is its ability to drive students to push themselves beyond what they thought they were capable of. The transition from "high school art" to professional art is almost instantaneous. Not only that, but there is a strong feeling of community at CCAD, which is described by faculty as "the CCAD family." You are not treated as a number. You truly have a strong sense of belonging at CCAD.


What makes Columbus College of Art And Design a unique school is the fact that there are no cliques. Everyone fits in, and you don't ever feel unwelcome. Us fellow CCAD students are one, big creative family, and we are always there to help one another.


Quality, creativity,focused


Despite how small it is it feels very important to Columbus and the art industry. It seems very geared towards traditional rules/foundations in art; which I think most art colleges seem to lack right now. It may not have the recognition of RISD or MICA, but it most certainly makes it's mark when it comes to practice.


It is a world class art school that allows students to set goals that most schools wouldn't provide pathways to attaining.


It is a small private school so you get the individual attention from the instructors.


I like the openness of the small college, it felt more at home for me.


CCAD has an enviroment of diversity which is a good size it isn't too large and not too small. The less then average size of the student body allows teachers to get more in touch with students, and it delivers alot of work but doesn't make it too hard for you.


not that many people attend this school
