Academic Flexibility: They are always great for helping with anything you come to them for. It does not have to be a certain teacher or councilor either. They will all lead you in the right direction. I don't know about transferring because I didn't transfer any credits. I'm sure they would though.

Campus Resources: Labs are wonderful and there is always more than enough computers to use. every building has wireless access. The wireless seems to be real fast as well. you get unlimited black and white prints and so many color prints each semester at no charge. That makes it wonderful.

Campus Resources: There is nothing for athletics that I have seen. the student centers and activities are great. The school tries to have get together for students to eat and socialize which I thought was nice.

Tuition & Financial Aid: You would always like for things to be less expensive but the materials and supplies you get are top notch. I cant say I am upset with the cost but it does make it hard at times. The financial aid process was smooth, They helped me through the process and answered all questions I had to ask. If I was to offer a tip it would be to make sure you apply for the scholarships the school offers. I missed the deadline because of enrolling at the last minute. That is my only regret.

Academic Experience: There isn't another school like this one that I am aware of. There is so much hands on. You learn from the best teachers there are to offer. They give you a fair amount of workload but not to much that I have seen. There are internship opportunities for those that qualify, and there are always job postings for part time work for students that need the extra cash.

Academic Experience: The variety of academics offered are all similar related. With the exception of the medical field. This makes it nice because a Film major student can work with a student that's majoring in make up effects. It gives a feel of true life working in the field of your profession and others. the registration process is done for you once you chose your desired path or career you want to obtain. Once again the professors are the best in the business. They all have real world experience in what they teach so if you ask about something beyond what is in the book they are excited to teach you.

Career Services: The career services is excellent here. They try to make sure you are prepared when you graduate to get a job. they help with mock interviews, portfolio reviews and so much more. They go above and beyond but it is ultimately up to the student to take advantage of it.

Student Body: There are all types of people in my school, I even have a student from France it my classes. everyone gets along great. We all are on the same path, so there is so much we all have in common with each other. Race, religion, rich, or poor. none of that matters here. not that I have seen anyways.

Overall Experience: I love this school, There is not a lot to do in the town, but it keeps your attention on your work. The staff is always more than willing to help you, No matter what the problem may be. All the class rooms are very nice and clean. The teachers are the best in the field and they truly care about your success. I would recommend this school to anyone that asked me about it.

Career Services: Career Services at this school are a joke. They do not help any students at all. If they do send you job prospects they are usually minimal wage jobs, and jobs that have no merit in the field you studied. Upon graduating, they offered us a job painting faces at a local fair for minimal wage. I didn't pay $40,000 to paint faces. Every student I have talked to who has graduated cannot find work in their field, even if they moved to California. Just about every student is stuck working a minimal wage job and living at home with their parents.

Online Courses: We never really had online courses. We would go online to research certain subjects, but that's about it.

Campus Resources: It is a very small campus in a rundown town. They offer a computer lab to students. The problem is the printers in the computer lab do not work half the time, and are always being worked on.

Student Body: The vast majority of this program was made up of students ages 18 to 21. While, their was a few older students, it was mainly a younger crowd. Filled with outcasts, it felt like a lot of the students had no idea what they wanted to do with their life, and had no idea why they were there. It seemed that the ones who were there to learn where shunned by the teachers, but the tattooed, green haired girl who likes to party, received quite a bit of attention. A lot of students would come to class drunk and the teachers would still pass them. Hell, even if you didn't show up, you would still pass this program. It's funny to see a lot of students walk around school parading arrogance and be stuck up, only to get out in the real world and find out they are not as talented as the teachers made them out to be.

Tuition & Financial Aid: One of my biggest regrets in life is going to this school.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Outrageous for an associates degree about 40,000$!! no jobs!

Academic Experience: I was a special effects major in the tom savini program. The teachers were great but the school doesnt care about you or what happens to you after you graduate. Zero job opportunities

Academic Experience: Schedules came out a day before class started

Career Services: HORRIBLE placement. They tell you that you have this career services center to look forward to, but they do nothing for you. ZERO. When you graduate. They count any job you get afterwards like at a super market as "placement", so they tell you they have 70% placement, which is bs. YOU WILL NOT get a job, especially if you are in the Tom Savini Program. They don't even try to place you, and even if you move to California, the jobs prospects are nowhere to be found. bad choice, wish I never would've done it. None of my classmates have jobs either
