CCAD Student Agency
Pick up real-world experience and a paycheck.
The award-winning CCAD Student Agency is an integral part of Columbus College of Art & Design’s Marketing and Communications Department. The Student Agency employs student photographers, videographers, illustrators, and designers who create projects used by both CCAD and outside clients, including Experience Columbus and Franklin University. Student Agency employees get a head start into the professional world, while providing valuable insight, eclectic worldviews, and their own interests into marketing materials for the college.
