MY CCAD: June 5, 2017
Hello, students and recent grads! Welcome to your summertime MY CCAD message.
Please note: MY CCAD will arrive on a monthly basis during the summer. (Class of 2017, this will be your final MY CCAD message!)
SHOW YOUR CCAD PRIDE
Pride is almost here! Show your love for the Queer Alliance and march in the 2017 Pride Parade Saturday, June 17. CCAD Pride T-shirts are free for students. More details here.
BRINGING SHADE TO THE ARTS FESTIVAL
CCAD is bringing something especially cool to this weekend’s Columbus Arts Festival — Sorbetdome, a large (26 feet wide!) shade structure. Learn more here, and check out the many CCAD grads with booths at the fest. Plus, keep an eye out for the Arts Festival volunteer T-shirts, which were designed by two CCAD Student Agency employees.
AMPERSAND EMPORIUM & THE MARKET HOURS
Your one-stop shop for all things CCAD pride has special summer hours. Details on Ampersand Emporium’s schedule here.
The Market will be open periodically this summer for your dining needs. (Meal plans will not be in effect, but cash and credit/debit cards will be accepted.) Find The Market’s schedule here.
WALK THIS WAY
Put on your walking shoes: Your student I.D. does not work as a pass on COTA buses during the summer. Student I.D.s will again serve as your pass to free COTA rides at the start of the fall semester.
