Do not go to this school for Design.Quite BrightIndustrial Design
Do not go to this school for Design. It is an art school and the design department is a complete mess. It's sad because I really want to like CCAD but I am incredibly unhappy with the quality of education they provide. The classes are not challenging, not relevant, and half of the ID teachers contradict the other half.

Big waste of my time and money. My advice is get private lessons if you are serious about art. Go to the library and read history books and other art books on the subject you are interested in. Practice practice, their is no magic information that any art professor here will have for you, quite the opposite actually. The ability to do art well comes from time and dedication at your craft, not a degree in art. Get advice from real people about your art, college critiques are ego-stroking fests for teachers who have no real good advice. There are no down to earth people at the school, if you are considering college for its social aspects then count this one out. If you are considering college for the use of facilities, count that out also because for the amount you would be paying for a degree (100k+) you could buy your own personal equipment that is much better and you'd actually save money. College is for doctors and lawyers, don't waste your time at art school, especially this one.
