A prayer for the CCAD Class of 2020
Thank you for those who provided paints, pencils, sketchbooks, and iPads when no one else saw the artist being born and taking form within each person.
Thank you for those who smiled upon them and smile still—providing encouragement in the creative process of growing up.
Thank you for all the faculty, staff and trustees of CCAD. Each one of the family we know as CCAD has shown resolve to make this college, this class, and each student the best person they can be and has provided them with the tools they need to succeed.
—Rev. Dr. Timothy C. Ahrens
First Congregational United Church of Christ

Congratulations, Class of 2020!
You’ll soon receive a package with your diploma, as well as some CCAD swag courtesy of our Alumni Office to commemorate your achievements and welcome you into the alumni family. That package will be tracked via the United States Postal Service to ensure it gets to you, wherever you are. In the meantime, find out more about how you can stay involved with CCAD on our alumni page.
To add to the celebration, CCAD Animation classes have developed a virtual space to provide graduating seniors a digital platform to celebrate their graduation. This multi-class world-building project recreates the center of CCAD’s campus and is an online game for students to visit, play games in, and have fun.
Share in the Celebration
We encourage you to host your own celebration (with appropriate social distancing, of course) on Saturday, May 9 at 10 a.m. Class of 2020, please share your virtual graduation conversation using the hashtag #ccadlasts.
