3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel like everything (including the tuition) is to my satisfaction. Its might be stressful but I know it will be well worth it in the end.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The campus is pretty small. It's located in an office building with another school. There's a library which is also very small and limited but they have an online library which makes up for that. There are a ton of computer labs with some great tech. Not the latest stuff though. Over all it just has the essentials you need. One thing though, it would be nice to have a functioning cafeteria. But that's not necessary.

College Freshman

Student Body: I've only been at this school for about a month and a half. So it wouldn't be too accurate if I was to make any judgments so soon. I've mostly only had to deal with students that were in my class. There does seem to be a very active student dynamic with activities and groups. Eventually I would like to get more involved when my work schedule is more flexible.

Academic Flexibility: Before I chose this school I had already been in school for Biology for 3 years. Luckily most of my pre-req. classes transferred and I wont have to take another science, history, math, or English class ever again. The main reason I really like this school is the flexibility of the professors and how dedicated the financial department is with helping pay for school. They really don't give up. Getting started was a breeze and they guide you as best they can at every step. Of course you have to put in a lot of effort as well if you really want it.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is quite expensive yet it does not bother me because everything I will need is included in the tuition besides a particular type of fabric for a piece of clothing I would want and need I would have to get on my own expense which is totally fine with me. The Financial aid office employees are a great help as well.

Campus Resources: Every staff member on campus are open and willing to help no matter how busy they are. They never fail to mention "If you ever need anything or have any questions feel free to contact me by phone or email" which is quite refreshing to know they are there to help when I need it.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: I have only used the computers twice but so far they are up to speed.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: So far I feel like this school deserves an A because it is the only known fashion school that I have heard of in Seattle Washington which includes a variety of things I am interested in in which the school will help take allot of stress off of me being that they are tremendously hands on and willing to help at all times.

Academic Flexibility: In my opinion its the teachers that mae the learning fun one instruction for example this instructor made the class interesting, made one understand theinformation given easily and ut it into one's terms they could understand. the instructor was good at noticing how I learn the information and was able to tech it in a way people of many learning style could graps it. This instruction taught through lectures and videos and hands on and simulations, but also can get really detailed and hardly ever sugar coats anything so one is not left wondering when they step into the real world. this instructor tells us theor experience so that we are comfortable to come to this instructor with our questions and concerns. So it really in my opinions depends on the instructor some instructors take the fact that one doesnt undestand what he or she is saying personally which is not the case. Sometimes it is hard when one works a lot to get stuff down but teachers except still a little late. I do think that if stusdents are suppose to be on time that the instructor should as well and not talk about their pregancy or things unrealted to our major. I did not have creadits coming hear but i do hear it is extremely hard to transfer and get them transfered here

Campus Resources: The library is adequet it is an improvement that there is a gerber computer now.
Theres no cafeteria just vending machines.
There a cafe on the other side of the building by the white glove association it closes at 5pm though
It feels like a commuter school at times.
The student housing was quite interesting eye brow raising.
The student housing made one feel like a number not a person. (CHS)
Theres people in the staff that are coming and going being hired and quiting, even people who one didn't think would pick up leave like the general education head and the Game Design Chair just up and leaves? Sketchy if they dont want to be here, why? it just seem leery like theres something we dont know like if they are really teaching industry level information just a personal opinion.

1 College Senior

Campus Resources: Are you serious?
Well where to begin the steam punk collaboration was awesome.
Some teachers are really great whos ever is in charge should work with the instructors so they dont leave.
There is no school pride or rarely any activities but it seems as if they are adding school activities to the calendar so that is improving a bit.
I feel that this school will either be great in 10 years in the future and that I am in the early years of its infancy.
I would not refer this school, sorry. I have witnessed and seen some things that I would not want others to go through.

Tuition & Financial Aid: It seems as if they actually listen to you show you many options to funding your education. They even come get you if you are too busy to come down

2 College Senior

Career Services: I am currently a senior in college and it is surprising how no one has really taked to me about graduation or job placement. I graduate in 3 terms. and have been told that I have to cover part of my last term before graduation. one would think that the financial Aid would figure something out that would prevent this type of thing. I have not even taken out a lot of stipends since it is money for school. but they seem to care let see how this works out. A graduate I know is still working at her job while in school H&M

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have only had two online classes:
Art History I
Art History II
This was My second online class and well the class was very influential and I learned a lot but the only thing I would improve is the Adobe connect. It has to be "reset" a few times so I could join the online chat. I have heard of the troubles of having an online class but my indtructor (Professor Jean Graham) was very good at communicating ith all 60 of her students. It really depends on the instructor that could make an online class for an hard working student influential or not.
If they continue to go good and at this rate, I will take further ones on-line since they are only five weeks long

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: They can improve on the computers in each classroom. They just installed a new print shop which is pretty hi-tech for students to use. They have an excellent photography and video studio.

5 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process at my school is excellent.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The academics at the school are pretty well-rounded for graphic design. There needs to be more changes in the curriculum to provide graphic design students with more interactive and web skills.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: I'm a graphic design student and my classes are somewhat what I expected so far. The workload for the upper classes are pretty heavy with emphasis on turning out portfolio quality projects.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Not Your Typical Fashion Design Program. When I first signed up for school I was worried that it would be a "hoidy-towidy" modern fashion design school where we designed garments that no one really wanted to wear.
I have found that not only does this school intend to produce items that will be sold on shelves, but they also work hand in hand with other groups of the school on combined projects. They recently had a project where the fashion design and graphic design students worked on making a complete character.

Campus Resources: Everything You Need and More! There are many computer labs and rooms to work on the many projects that this school assigns. Many times I've been told that if I need to work on something and a lab is not in use by a class, I will have access to it for what I need. To use the specialty machines, or even just a computer for typing up an essay.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: Helping Me Find the Door and Get the Keys, Now It up to Me to Walk Through. I'm kind of happy with the fact they don't hold my hand the entire process. They offered, and I'm glad, but when the knew I was able to understand most of it, they let me do what I had to, and helped me where I needed it.
When financial aid was unable to cover all of my tuition, they showed me sites and gave me many different options to com up with the rest of what I needed to attend school.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Wonderful Administration Help – From the moment I received that first phone call to today I have been helped every chance that I need it and not over hassled if I don't.
My main representative has been an incredible asset to enrolling, helping me find a job, and even a new home for when I moved into the area of my school.
He has even continued to help me find commissions as well as volunteer work that will help me succeed!

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Not All I Expected It to Be – There are a few classes that I find not worth every penny that I will spend on the specific courses. In more than half of my classes require books that I never end up using during the term. The financial aid process is very easy. The financial aid advisors are very good at keep in contact with the students and making sure that everyone is going on the right path.

Academic Experience: Too Many Changes in Our School – It seems like every term, a new instructor appears or some of the teachers I have had no longer teaches there. When I talk to my other classmates about the same courses we have had but not taken together, I found that we barely had anything to compare about the course. We had different teachers, I learned a certain software and my classmates learned something different that I never learned. I find it that it is unfair that each of us had the same classes but learned total different things. Besides that, I have had learned a lot of useful information that will benefit me in the work field I am aiming to work in.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: Small Campus – Small campus in an industrial area near a major mall. On a main bus line which is good for students without cars. No cafeteria, just snack machines, and a coffee shop. Continue to update computers, but need more materials available for graphic design students.
