The Creative College Campus

The campus is designed scientifically to aid and enhance ones creativity. To start with, this is not a typical campus with long corridors and rooms. The spaces here are designed with responsive human behaviour at its core. As you walk through the campus there are a lot of touch points that have been specifically created and placed to trigger ones creativity at a subconscious level. Some of the touch points are the use of models room, white board area as a “walls of thought”, transparency to bring a sense of ease and to remove mental road blocks, open spaces to facilitate social collaboration, and natural elements to soothe and to get inspired.

To complement the above creative philosophy Creative Colleges campus is located at Myleripalayam, on the Coimbatore-Pollachi highway, just a half an hour’s drive from Coimbatore station. This place is well connected by air, road and railways, making it easily accessible from anywhere.

CAMPUS LIFE


The physical environment of the campus is structured to induce the young minds to exercise their creative faculties. All the classes are conducted in Hexagon- shaped rooms which have no blind spots, thereby bringing the whole classroom together, leaving no student out. Our classrooms have ‘Idea walls’ where students can express their creative thoughts. Such classrooms designed with the recommendations of educational psychologists to maximise the potential the students have, to learn a concept within a specific amount of time.

For a professional, working as a part of a team is very important. Creative Colleges encourages collaborative learning among peers, as this facilitates a low-anxiety atmosphere wherein acquisition, rather than learning, takes root on a subconscious level.

Creative Colleges encourages extra-curricular activities and sports. The institution provides a wide range of indoor and outdoor games. There are informal study area in and around the college is where nature study and life sketches takes place. Students also try out life size installations in these areas.
