2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I wish they offered more than approx 4-5 grand per semester as a scholarship. It's 20 grand to go to the school... and 15-16 grand is still expensive for 3 months.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a one-of-a-kind place with really interesting things going on.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Very wide variety of people attending this school. It's hard to say there's a "typical" anything at an institution dedicated to art.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The public transportation system is easy to navigate and easy to access.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Nice weather in the afternoons and evenings... It's San Fran, so it's foggy otherwise. It is paradise.

4 College Junior

Computers: Good computer labs and free printing. Anywhere on campus wireless availability.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Great library full of amazing books on art. Architecturally a beautiful campus, and an amazing view. It's an art school so events can get pretty weird.

5 College Junior

Facilities: Love it. It's small, beautiful, facilities stay open all night, open campus, it's great.

4 College Junior

Diversity: It's cool. It's San Francisco, I think a lot of the students go here because of the sexual diversity.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: San Francisco cost a lot and you'll probably have to live outside the city.

3 College Junior

Transportation: It's fine. Within the city the bus are reliable. BART's really good for getting out of the city.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: San Francisco is great. It's beautiful, it has great museums, whatever you want. It just cost a lot and the parking sucks.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: It's not bad. People drink sometimes but I think everyone is paying too much money to become total lushes.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Since our school is located in the civic center, there's a lot of homeless and "crazies" near the restaurants. So the restaurants aren't as good in the vibe.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: After a student reveals their major, you can be like "ahhh" because of the way they dress and talk. For example the fashion students, they always dress nice and are up-to-date with fashion.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: The attendance poly is very strict which is understandable because if you miss 3 classes, u get an automatic F. There's only 11 weeks in a quarter and we meet once a week so that is understandable.

4 College Junior

Academics: There's a job/internship fair that's held every quarter at the school.

4 College Junior

Academics: They help you register which is always appreciated. The academic directors take the time to give what the class is about.

College Junior

Campus Dining: There is no cafeteria at my school. Only vending machines with snacks and microwavable goodies such as hot pockets and round pizza. Most students go to fast food restaurants nearby the school to eat.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It's a bit confusing. I still don't get the process of how much I have to pay and if they will give me back any money for receiving merits.

3 College Junior

Transportation: You have to pay for parking, they don't provide that.

You mainly have to take BART. The total cost on getting there is expensive in my case.

3 College Junior

Parking: A little far from school
