Founded in 1879, The Columbus College of Art & Design is one of the oldest art and design colleges in the US. It is a private college located in the downtown area of Columbus, OH, and adjacent to the Columbus Museum of Art. CCAD is a member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. A majority of students choose to study commercial and advertising art, animation, video graphics and special effects or illustration.
I have completely enjoyed my first 2 years at CCAD. I have found the professors and staff at CCAD to be caring and strive to help me grow as an artist. Columbus College of Art and Design is the top school in the nation for arts studies...........now I know why.

Facilities are great, many resources for artists. Cafeteria food needs work, but they are trying to fix it. Teachers are lacking outside of Fine Arts and Fashion Design.
