You won’t feel it until you get here.
As an art and design student, you need to be inspired by your surroundings. The landscape, movement and atmosphere: Does it speak to you? Whether it’s bright murals, people’s costumes or stark warehouse spaces, we’re sure you’ll find something unique in Columbus that ignites your artistic energy. We are a community of students who think differently and who set out to create something new, every day. So walk the surrounding neighborhoods with a sketchbook. Stop in to a coffee shop or restaurant and take a few photos. Seek out that warehouse or historic building or public park. Finding what speaks to you — that's why you have to visit.
You can stay close to campus during your visit, or explore other districts of Columbus. We’ve provided a variety of options below, including some restaurants that we love. Because you’ll want to check those out.
