| There is no reason to spend $20k a year to attend this school when for $30k a year you could attend a world-class art school like the Cranbrook Academy of Art, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Rhode Island School of Design, Yale School of Art, etc., etc. Don't be afraid to leave Michigan. |

| -The dorms are an absolute shit hole, and if you get stuck in the Palmer Court dorms, be prepared to have your house broken into or your car stolen. Campus security is useless, and you will be harassed by motorists walking to class.|
-The labs are never open for you to use, despite CCS claiming them to be, because security is a bunch of dimwits that close them whenever they feel like it and interrogate you when you're just trying to get your homework done.
-The campus jobs are often taken by people who are not in need of financial aid. 95% of students get financial aid so the employers dont really ask anymore. As such, you get a lot of rich kids getting jobs just because they want extra spending money, while the poor kids suffer. Disgusting.
-You take a lot of tedious classes that are required
-The liberal arts classes are an absolute joke-you can pass with an A+ without ever reading the books you paid $200 for because all the professors are shitty community college professors and expect you to be dumb.
-Housing will bill you to tears for any damages in your dorm, even though you will not cause 99% of them. They even charge you for rust stains in your sink, I shit you not.
-A lot of the professors are not qualified enough for what you're paying the school. Many teach at colleges like Oakland or have no real background in the industry.-They accept a lot of people who flat out suck, just so they can get their money for the first year before students drop out.

| Dude, CCS is no joke. Absolutly no time for play. I can only say, the 2 best design school in the country are CCS and Art Center. Especially if you decide to take industrial design, you gotta have an IQ of 120. these guys are what i like to call " monsters or zombies" they rarly sleeps. Its gotta be design day and night. |
