As an artist or designer, the need to create is deeply ingrained in your DNA. It’s not something you can shut off. At CCS we celebrate that and strive to create an environment where you can be yourself and let your talent thrive. You will find yourself surrounded by other students with similar talents and goals, in one of the most creative cities in the U.S. The student experience at CCS truly encompasses every aspect of an artistic lifestyle available.

A fitness room, complete with cardio and weight equipment, and cable television, is located in the Art Centre Building (ACB). The fitness room is available for use by all students during the academic year. CCS students are also qualified for a paid membership at the Wayne State University Recreation and Fitness Center. Opportunities to play soccer, flag football, pool and ping-pong also exist.
Health & Wellness
Health screenings and programs highlighting self image, eating disorders, sexually transmitted diseases and sexual assault are sponsored on campus. The Office of Student Life offers free wellness brochures on various health and welfare topics. Students are encouraged to stop in and get a brochure or speak with Student Life staff.
Halloween brings costume and pumpkin carving contests, while Valentine's Day, Mardi Gras and St. Patrick's Day offer unique opportunities for creative celebrations. In April, spring is welcomed with an all campus carnival complete with psychics, food, games and music.
Giving back to the community is an important value students are exposed to in various ways. Whether it's through blood drives for the American Red Cross or planting trees with the Greening of Detroit, students are provided ways to make a difference in our local and global communities.
