| I went to CCA to study for my second degree. I have a BA from a top tier University. I was hoping students, teachers, office workers, departments, would all work together towards a same goal, but was very disappointed. From the outside, the school presents well, the student work looks amazing, the staff is overall friednly. Once I actually started attending I realized how disfunctional this school really is. I really felt most of the student body was, arrogant, unfriedly, and clicky, and the teacher body was self-absorbed. I would hardly get any feedback from either students, or teachers, and only learnt to depend on skills I already had prior to attending. I would not recommend this school to second degree students or adults returning to school, perhaps young inexperienced high-school graduates can put up with the attitudes, unorganized staff, and condescending teachers, but I know I couldn't because I know it isn't the way things are normally done! In the end I decided to put my graduation on hold and attend a different school. |

| This was my first year here and everybody has been really friendly. Everything is real accessible and friends are easy to make. The shuttles between campuses seem to be the only problem I've come across as there aren't enough runs per day. |

| CCA is not a walk in the park. This school has rigourous coursework that will keep you up for hours. I've grown to love the challenge of keeping it together and completing all the work to be done.I love it here. Many people who go to "normal" universities usually say art school!Thats so easy, but it is not,so if you are thinking about coming to CCA, be ready for a challenge and you will find your strength to succeed here.The teachers are also great,they all work in their field ,and provide the business knowledge you need to know for your major. |
Their are a lot of exhibition events and lectures at the school as well ,that will help you make contact and network with people and companies that work in the arts.Artwork is always hanging up from critiques, so if a gallery owner or art director is walking around campus, they could see your work and contact you.This has happened for many students.
Last if you are interested in animation, their is a new degree program in this field. It is really new ,so it not listed in most catalogs yet.
