The facilities at the Oakland and San Francisco campuses are very different from one another. Oakland has a more laid-back and earthy feel to it, with trees and plants all over campus, which is very inspiring to artists. There are many different classrooms and studios to work in, and public transportation and stores are very close by. There are also many buildings that have specialty amenities, such as photo labs and studios and equipment for animation, drawing, painting, sculpting, and 4D, 3D, and 2D work.
The San Francisco campus has a more professional look to it, and the building for students studying architecture, graphic design, fashion, and illustration is very clean and orderly. Each campus has its own library, with books on topics any artist could need or want—the process of obtaining them is easy, and the employees are very knowledgeable. Students on one cmapus can also order books from the other if they do not want to go to the other library. Having the two campuses is nice—they fulfill the needs of everyone’s various art forms and aren’t too far from each other (about 11 miles). Students have enough room and space for their creative processes, yet are still able to work and cooperate with one another. The College also has lots of equipment that students can borrow through a process that is easy and accessible.
