3 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics are average in my opinion. A few of the professors have been great, others have been so/so, and some have been awful.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The workload is heavy, as with most other majors. The facilities are average.

3 College Senior

Academics: I love the art program and even some of the gen. eds that I've had to take, but some teachers have been either too strict or don't care at all, so I would definitely go to ratemyprofessor.com before signing up for a class to see if its right for you.

5 College Senior

Academics: I really wish the school board would pay more attention towards the art program because it is such an awesome program with a lot of talented students who have such a passion for what they do.

5 College Senior

Academics: It's amazing, you don't just focus on one media, you get to experience ones you are not normally use to and it becomes one of the best classes to take. Some art professors will let you listen to music from your own selections or they turn on the radio to help ease the atmosphere while you work. The workloads can seem a lot, but can it can be done. I was not a big ceramist or painter, but taking the classes was an experience that I enjoyed learning!
