5 College Sophomore

Weather: Its so nice,,,nice view and weather

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It depends on the area,,pasadena is good

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: They mostly look like nerds,,,just some of them look smart and charming

1 College Senior

Athletics: We have no sports. Although there is a large congregation of smokers who hang out in the basketball courts when there aren't any cars parked there....

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Our school does not have on campus housing. I have been lucky enough to find a well priced apartment with good easy going landlords.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: It is difficult because there is so much to take into account and the financial aid ladies have a lot of students to attend to.

4 College Senior

Diversity: There is a good variety of people. Most are of asian decent but as a hispanic girl who lived in florida it is different and exiting to learn new cultures.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Average restaurants for an average sized town. Lots o expensive places that I cannot really go to as a student, and then the basic fast food places.

1 College Senior

Campus Dining: The Sodexo monopoly of food is HORRIBLE. There are few expensive choices, only opened for very few hours, and with no other food places around we are forced to eat here. We live off bending machines and water.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Pasadena is very quaint and beautiful. There is a nice museum to go to that is free for students. Unfortunately there is not much to do as a young woman or man in a suburban city other than maybe go eat at a nice restaurant. You have to go to LA to find some fun.

Campus Strictness: The security at Art Center College of Design are like bored suburban cops. They are uptight about the most frivolous things. Most of the students are very driven and focused on their work and don't get caught up with drug/alcohol problems. Instead, most of the time security is giving out parking tickets and kicking students out of classrooms for working too late.

Majors: Internships vary based on specific interests and design emphasis. Most of the time though, our school connects with companies that offer paid internships and are usually full-time. We try to avoid internships that require clerical duties and fetching coffee and try to gravitate towards internships that give us hands-on experiences.

Computers: The computers/network reliability/speed at Art Center College of Design are great. Most people have their own laptops, but during midterms and finals, the computer labs and printers can get pretty busy. You want to avoid the computer labs during the flu season.

Majors: The curriculum at Art Center College of Design is incredibly demanding, but often rewarding, although it may be too glorified at times. The ridiculous tuition costs are semi-reflected in the quality of the facility.

3 Recent Alumnus

Majors: The graphic design program at Art Center College of Design prepares you for the industry if you know what your specialization is going to be. If I could do it all over again, I would choose a different major for personal reasons/interests, not because of the program. Finding a graphic design job shouldn't be too difficult.

5 College Senior

Weather: Southern California sunshine and warmth. Although not my ideal weather, it allows for work on location year round.

4 College Senior

Academics: Most classes provide a fair amount of challenge if you choose to apply yourself.

3 College Senior

Parking: During summer months it is fine. During the busier semesters students must use overflow parking or valet their cars.

3 College Senior

Academics: The school has started to become overcrowded. They are accepting more and more students without the resources to accommodate them.

College Senior

Scholarships: I didn't qualify for assistance and had to apply for a loan which a loan officer helped me file. it went smoothly and I was approved.

College Senior

Drug Safety: I haven't really noticed any drug and alcohol problems. I attend classes and when done I don't linger just head home.

3 College Senior

Computers: The labs are a bit crowded so I tend to carry my Mac and do the work whenever I have free time.

4 College Junior

Transportation: we have a shuttle at school. Most people dont know of it or use it because everyone has their own car. I've used it and it has been great.
