I am in the Photography Program. The teachers really know what they are doing and are passionate about what they teach. They have real world experiences and stories to share, and come back from breaks with more recent stories. They all have a good sense of humor too. The workload is nicely planned, every two weeks we usually get a new assignment per class, and because it's such a subjective major, they are flexible about working with you to coordinate shoots. The facilities are awesome and top notch. They are always letting us know about job and internship opportunities and remind us about the deadlines.

I like CMC but I'm glad that it's a stepping stone and that I will be transferring in a semester. The teachers are great and care about their students. They have office hours and are available for extra help or questions which is nice. The location is beautiful, be ready to drive down the hill in the snow, I stayed on campus more in the winter. The dorms are nice although putting a kitchen in the J3 is an excellent idea, as well as doubling the amount of washers and dryers, they should get the kind that stack - there were never enough washers/dryers open, and most of the time at least one or two were broken. The cafeteria hours are really bad. The food is ok, but the hours for dinner were 4:30 - 6:15, which meant you ate really early and were hungry later. The take away boxes were a great idea though, thanks for that. The cafe was good for lunch but the hours again, were really short and closed on the weekends. You can tell it's a smaller school with less staff. Again, good stepping stone, but I'm looking forward to moving past it.

I'm in the photography program and it is excellent! There are very high expectations and the teacher's grade your work as if they are a very picky, rich client. This is not a program to dawdle in while you decide what you want to do, this is a program for people who want to be professional photographers. The professors are often learning some of the technology as they are trying to teach it, which is impressive. The film class is my favorite.
