5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The school is very helpful, providing a list of places you can go to. The pros are that everyone lives close to each other and that with roommates it is very affordable to those that decide to live in the city, and even if you don't drive the bus stop is only a few blocks away. The cons are that if you do drive, they clean the streets twice a week and its inconvenient to move your car blocks away from your destination.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone is accepting of basically everyone else. We are the kind of people that just want to make art, have fun, and live life happily. My school is the best because we all are caring of each other no matter what is different. I hardly notice the differences.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Many people are extremely into fashion, like the designers and photographers, while the fine artists and graphic artists prefer to dress comfortably or just wear clothes they don't mind getting paint on. It's a good mix of not caring at all what is being worn and caring too much.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: It's an art school, most of us grew up being dweebs. The only sports we have are the annual teacher vs. student softball game, and that's just because we are a close group of student and faculty that have fun together, not because any of us have a desire to have a team. It's just good competition that everyone enjoys, even though the students have literally never won a single game.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There isn't much drug use on campus, because of the size of our school. The only time it is really seen is when students come to school already under the influence or the occasional party-goer coming in on a Monday with a headache.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: The school does not offer on dorm-rooms for students, instead we have off campus apartments. The rules that students must adhere to are the same as the rest of the town, so as long as students are a law abiding citizens, no problems should arise that will affect academic or social aspects of a student's life.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: We are required to participate in an internship during our senior year. Though i haven't had on yet, I'm excited for the job experience and the opportunity to learn from more skilled professionals in my field of study. i have no concerns at all about finding an internship because my school prides themselves on helping students find the best places to work, obtain knowledge, and overall be experienced when it comes to internships so i know they will prepare me.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I am happy with my program in fine arts, i would like to have a job restoring art and making master copies for museums, so for my future prospects it seems promising that i can achieve these goals with help from my school.

College Freshman

Athletics: We don't really have sports so we have no fans or athletic facilities.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Foundation year is a trial year where everyone decides if this is the place for them. Personally, I can't say much about my major since that will be for next year but it is a good environment and most of the people there have our bet interests at heart.

Drug Safety: If we're talking smoking cigarettes then it is very bad because everyone is smoking outside even when there's a no smoking here sign. Even the guards do it!

Computers: Laptops are usually with everybody and tech support is always helpful. The network is good but printing is confusing sometimes with the systems and it really is a pain.

Nightlife: I don't live there and there's only one party by the school. That is good and fun and vibrant.

Guys & Girls: Everyone has similar interests but everyone varies. Everyone is relatively nice and friendly but cliques are still present.

2 College Freshman

Majors: Foundation year is putting everyone together in a variety of majors that don't branch into the fields we're curious about. We don't start the real learning process until we're in sophomore year.

Majors: I don't know because we aren't in our majors foundation year.

Health & Safety: No one really handles the situation of theft seriously but overall okay.

Academics: Since it's foundation year, many students are undecided so the school lumps everyone together in all the major courses or so. It's annoying but for those who don't know what they want it helps though not by much.

Academics: They pile work on you but you do have time. It's just whether your personal life suffers or not.

Transportation: If you live there, it's within walking distance. If you commute then you have those problems to deal with.

Off-Campus Housing: I love having my own apartment. It allows for much more freedom than a dorm. I get to have a full kitchen and can have my own space too.
