CONSTRUCTION IS COMING. LEARN MORE ON THURSDAY

Starting this month, we'll have a lot of construction as CCAD undergoes a campus beautification project as part of the City of Columbus’ Creative Campus initiative. Beginning around Feb. 26, East Gay Street will be shut down for the rest of the spring semester and part of the summer.

Please visit ccad.edu/construction for the latest information, and learn more about how it will impact you during a brief presentation from 11 a.m. and noon Thursday, Feb. 15, in Canzani Center Auditorium. We’ll review how the upcoming Creative Campus construction could affect you and how it will make our campus more beautiful and safe.

Sure, we’re at the start of spring semester, but it’s not too early to think about fall!

Be sure to check in with your academic advisor before you register regarding course questions, then go to Self Service to add classes.
