Get involved at CCAD

Networking doesn't have to be just professional.

You have interests beyond what you're spending time on in the studio. Getting involved in CCAD student organizations is a great way to let those interests grow, meet people on and off campus and feel more at home here at CCAD. Our campus has an ever-changing number of student organizations that reflect a wide array of interests, including professional development, social gatherings, cultural connections, faith-based practices, and public service. By joining a student organization, you’ll have opportunities to improve your leadership skills, connect with faculty and staff members, and make a positive impact on campus. If you don’t see an organization that interests you, we'll help you start your own.

It's your campus. Make your voice heard.

CCAD’s Student Government Association is a group of elected students from all years and majors representing the voice of our student body. The association works to enhance your campus experience all year long and ensures that you'll have a ton of options for fun and learning outside the classroom. Want to get involved? The Student Government Association meets every Monday morning and is open to our entire CCAD community. 


Student involvement 

To enrich your student experience, the Student Engagement and Inclusion Office oversees programming and events like bringing comedians to campus, holding talent shows and facilitating cultural, academic, religious, social and recreational opportunities with the Student Programming Board. Students who get involved on campus are much more likely to be successful and enjoy college, and we want you to be one of them, so we’ll help you find your niche here right away.
