GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - A media arts college is relocating to a well-known building in downtown Grand Rapids.
Compass College of Cinematic Arts held a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning as they move into the former Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts building on Sheldon Boulevard. The school was founded a decade ago and is a conservatory-style college, which means it is performance-based.
The school's president says the move to 41 Sheldon will allow students more time and space for hands-on film and digital work.
Compass College is the only film school in Michigan that offers an exclusive film and media arts centered education. The school is working on adding a baccalaureate program in the fall.
