3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Sometimes classes end too late and sometimes you can't do anything about it.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: the classes are convenient, and if it's on my work schedule the school's registrar is understanding and does anything that's possible to accommodate
my school schedule to my work schedule.

Academic Flexibility: You don't choose your classes. They are chosen for you. There are a limited amount of teachers, a limited amount of space for the classrooms. I wanted sculpture but it was full I so I got bloat classes that I didn't learn anything in. One teacher doesn't know what he's doing and just gives out grades he wants to give out without looking thoroughly at the student's work. I gave him a late paper and he graded it quickly in my face. He gave me a B. But out of the whole class I got a C. It's ridiculous.

Academic Flexibility: Class schedules are not flexible whatsoever; there are no night and no weekend classes. And your classes are chosen for you for the most part, with only minor adjustments allowed. And attendance is brutal for classes. Though most the instructors I have had are amazing artists and they can help you improve ten fold, though I an only speak for the Fine Arts program. I was also able to get a lot of credits transfered from my pervious college. There is no better fine art school in the area, the courses are amazing. And the small student body makes for very personalized education.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The classes are small, but I prefer a small class because they focus on you more than a huge class. My classes gave me a few spare time, since art is a big major in class. But the convenience of my new school outweighs the non-transferrable credits.
