5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors that I spend the most time with are dance teachers being as though it is my major. I am so satisfied with the dance faculty at my school. They show a genuine interest in each student's artistic and emotional well-being. They are willing to answer any questions we have regarding dance and life and do all they can to help us grow.

Health & Safety: The security that we have on campus are reliable. They do what they can to make you feel safe. There are few of them so they can not stop everything bad from happening. However, if something dangerous does take place they take immediate action and spread the word so we can be precautious as well.

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been a convenience. Having my dorm room not far from my classes is so helpful. With my busy schedule, it is nice that getting to class from the dorms only takes a few minutes.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As an artist, it can be difficult to find a place where you are completely accepted and understood. My school is just this. Each student is encouraged to explore their artistry while also being challenged intellectually. Attending this school has not only allowed me to grow as artist but also a critical thinker.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love my school. Elements of CalArts may be bumped and bruised but as a whole the community stands strong to together in supporting and fighting for each other.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I don't know much about the career center, but I do know CalArts has an eclectic assortment of alumni.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our security isn't overbearing on us as students, however, they take our safety as a community very seriously against outside influences.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The buildings may have been built in the 1970's with barely any remodeling, I appreciate the vibe and community build of campus housing, especially Chouinard Hall.

3 College Junior

Athletics: It's okay strictly because CalArts is an arts college, sports are not a focus at all. It's not a bad thing, however it would be nice to have a workout facility.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My school provides an experience that is like no other, it feels like an escape from reality. Re-entering the common world is always an adjustment. My school is made up of unique individuals, who have immense respect for each other.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security is good at keeping people out at the entrance for cars, but its very easy to walk on campus. Security does their job, doesn't really bother anyone.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I could not imagine studying film elsewhere-- being surrounded by unique, likeminded, motivated individuals informs some of my best art work.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school itself is great. I've grown and expanded my creative abilities BUT the cost of tuition is a bit ridiculous for the lack of certain classes it doesn't offer artists.
