We don't look a day over 138.

Columbus College of Art & Design first opened its doors on Jan. 6, 1879, as a small art school. Now, 140 years later, CCAD is a thriving art and design college and the engine of Columbus' creative economy. We think we've aged well if we do say so ourselves.

140 voices have shared how CCAD has impacted them, their lives, and the Columbus community. Read their stories (and CCAD's).
