Majors: It's great because I am actually attending classes that actually apply to what my degree is plus the teachers are experienced.

4 College Freshman

Majors: You fill out the regular application and then submit a portfolio and fill out separate questions regarding the program.

2 College Freshman

Computers: The internet is almost always down in the dorms. The creative writing student have to share and outdated computer lab with everyone.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's hot at the beginning of the fall semester but then it gets better. In the winter it snows and gets really cold (below 20 degrees).

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: No one judges you if you do not partake in it or if you do.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There is only one person handling the financial aid office which causes the process to be slow but it is getting better.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: They don't really give us any information but there are loft and apartment buildings near by.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Half of the week the food is appetizing but the other it isn't. It's nice that they have a salad bar but there isn't much of a variety. They only have the sandwich makers and bar during lunch and take it away at night.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: No tolerance Drug and under-age drinking policies. No alcohol in the dorms.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The staff go to great deals to keep the buildings up to par, but as expected the student have worn them a bit.

Local Atmosphere: This is not a party scene school. Fun is very out of the box and different. Must be creative.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school provides you with decent scholarships, even a full scholarship to those with the most potential. However, the school is a private school and the tuition can be a hard hitter. If you are lucky enough to receive enough from FAFSA then you are all set, if not apply for scholarships and work study.

Athletics: Being a school for the arts athletics are not the center of the world. However we do have a lot of great and interesting activities for the students. Hiking, climbing, biking, walking, camping, basketball, racket ball, tennis, yoga, dance, belly dance, etc.

Drug Safety: The only place you can drink on campus are the 21 and over on campus apartments where the RA's watch who are attending the parties and do a great job at preventing underage drinking. Most of the drinking happens off campus out of the schools hands.

Off-Campus Dining: Depends on what you get. There's a lot of variety and most of the food is high-quality for it's price, but it will cost a pretty penny.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: During my time here, I was harassed, the school changed it's name while still marketing itself as CSF much to the bewilderment of incoming students who showed up to find it being called SFUAD. It lost everything about it that people loved originally. It was a place where the outcasts of art and film geeks fit in, where they could make friends and feel welcome. It changed into a cold, unwelcoming desert that discouraged originality and flat out told students to shut up and drop out because they didn't belong. This was the worst experience of my life and I think I'd rather kill myself than come back to this school. Hell, they'd probably end up encouraging me to kill myself again.

Majors: Take my advice, if you're in film, go somewhere else. You won't be helped in gaining experience nor will you find any aid from most of the teachers. You're just going to waste your money on a confusing degree that benefits the school only and sends you out into the world alone and ready to die.

1 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Meh, you can get away with murder honestly. I know students who have had security called on them multiple times and no consequences came of it. It's like, if you've had to have your party broken up more than 5 times in a semester and nothing comes of it, then someone's doing something wrong.

5 College Senior

Computers: It depends what department your in. The computer lab in the CW building can fill up quickly, and there's only one, but the library has many computers available on top. All printing in mentioned buildings is FREE.
