    Hang out with friends and attend college events. There is often yoga classes and Smash Bros. competitions. Also, local festivals like Dlectricity. There's more to do if you have a car and downtown Detroit and Windsor, Canada is about a half hour drive away.

    There is stuff to do, but you have to go out and find it. It's Detroit, so there's always something going on. There are also a lot of random events going on around campus, like free food and things like pumpkin carving and painting. There's more going on at the beginning of the semester, and definitely more in the fall semester than in the winter.

    There are always a movie night going on at the T.C and there are ping-pong tables and pool tables on both campuses. During the warmer seasons most students are playing soccer or volleyball. You also have art supplies all over so you can always work on a personal project if you want.

    There are many things to do for fun around campus and off campus that is school related. There are many creative labs at school to work at and just enjoy being around other peoples company. You learn a lot from your own experience when creating something fun for the next school project but you also get be social with your classmates. With classmates and even for assignments you can tour the City life of downtown Detroit and walk to the Detroit Institute of Arts or hang out at the interesting sites downtown woodward avenue or even tour historical places.

    Detroit is a very under rated city, there is a lot to do. While the school is a good distance from downtown there is normally something going on on campus or even small trips on the weekends.

    There are a lot of different activities and events going on in downtown and midtown Detroit all the time for students to go to. There are almost always good shows nearby in venues like the Fillmore Theater, St. Andrews Hall, The Majestic Theater, and The Magic Stick in downtown Detroit. Comerica Park is close by so students can go catch a Tigers Game. CCS is also near the Fox Theater and they show different kinds of plays there all the time. During Memorial Day weekend there is Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF), where a lot of people attend. Around this time there is a large Jazz festival in Detroit also. The DIA, African American Museum, the Detroit Science Center, and the Detroit Historical Museum are all in walking distance to CCS and are good places to visit. Belle Isle is an interesting spot to visit in Detroit and they have a conservatory, aquarium, nature center, swimming beach and a lot of open park and area to walk around. This is a good place to visit in Spring and Summer when the weather is nicer in the year. Detroit also has Campus Martius in the downtown area where there are a lot of shops and restaurants and it is a fun place to walk around. It also has open ice skating in the winter. Greek town is a fun place to visit on the weekend, and there are a lot of good restaurants in that area. There are also local art galleries in the area which are good for students to check out also.
