College for Creative Studies Reviews
I love this school even though it can kind of be awful. The resources are fantastic, the technology, the wood shop, metal shop, foundry, ceramic studio, glass shop, just so many great things! It is a very challenging institution, particularly during the freshman year. It is a small school, so it is easy to form a bond with a lot of the students, especially since the students tend to be quite like-minded. The school can kind of stink depending on what major the student chooses. It is a great design school, fantastic for product designers, but the majors that are not so design based kind of get the short end of the stick. I have lived in the student housing for 4 years. They are improving it and renovating it, but unfortunately I have had to live in the construction. The campus is safe, the professors are great (usually), and it is a very inspiring place to be.
College for Creative Studies is a private school perfect for those who are invested in a future in the arts. Although the majority of students attending CCS will not walk out a celebrity, it guides students through the essential techniques, principles, life-lessons, and budgeting that artists must use in their field. By cultivating the students in their practice, and forcibly torturing them through grueling hours of laborious homework, it sets a foundation for the challenging practices ahead. As a Freshman in Entertainment Arts- a major based on three subdivisions: Game, Animation, and Film- I found my current experience to be wonderful; although the debt is not so wonderful. It is without a doubt one of the top schools for students who want a job in the entertainment industry. The students, alumni, and staff are upbeat about sharing their wisdom to better each other. This includes opening the door to potential jobs in the industry.
College for Creative Studies is devoted to art and design. Throughout my past two years, I have come to know the school well. Academics are rigorous. Most of the professors work part time in their fields, and are available to provide constructive criticism. Majors differ vastly, but my department, Fashion Accessories, is new to the school. There are positives, including the fact that there is a combination of making and design. However, the program is extremely disorganized. The head of the department has limited knowledge about how design works in the United States. In terms of campus life, there are a variety of activities offered. Students are mainly very passionate , however I have found it to be overwhelming, as conversation revolves around schoolwork, projects, and portfolios. It can be hard to take a mental break. Academic facilities are incredible. The school is not for everyone, but it has been a good fit for me as a student.
