Helpful Classes – Since I have only completed my freshman year, I will be starting classes in my major this fall. From what I have heard, they do a wonderful job preparing you for a life in the Graphic Design career. As far as my classes from freshman year, they were all wonderful! Each and every class was centered around an artistic lifestyle and thought process.

Within my school there are many different people. Just walking down the hall you see different races, different religious beliefs, different financial backgrounds. Some people are from out of state, and living in the dorms, while others commute an hour to school. In a classroom you'll see Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian, African, and many other races. Going to an art school in Chicago you see so many different types of people that there isn't any problems with acceptance, everyone is different and everyone accepts that.

Class Registration/Workload – The class registration process was so simple! The registrar is extremely helpful and knowledgeable in all the classes and the best classes for you to take for you career path. The workload during my freshman year was challenging but workable. The teaches know how challenge you without giving you an un-finishable workload.
