Academic Flexibility: Small school means fewer classes. If you want to be in convenient classes, then schedule them asap. It's hard to switch classes around. Also, the classes are long. Expect to be there at least four days a week. I wouldn't suggest keeping a job while attending this school full-time.

Career Services: No one even asks to see what happened after you graduate. They take your money and that's it.

Overall Experience: They don't have any networking opportunities. They don't have job fairs like most other universities. You're on your own after you graduate. Good luck.

Academic Experience: I studied Graphic Design. I took four studio classes and two academic classes each semester. It's a heavy workload and at times, I got very little to no sleep. It rigorous but DCAD tries to prepare their students for the real world.

Overall Experience: DCAD is an extremely small school. But what it lacks in socially, makes up for it with small classes and stronger connections with professors and faculty. Because of that, my transition to another school went smoother.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The friends I've made here have become family. Although there isn't much to do in Wilmington, you can still make some fun. because of the re-birthing process of the city you have to just be patient. but the curriculum is really good just as the school is as a whole.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The class sizes are mostly small, so you can always get individual help if you need to. You can also go to office hours before class if you need to.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are quite a bit of jobs on campus and often times they go quickly. But resource info is available if you aren't eligible for work-study. The professors are people who are actually active in the field and know what they're talking about.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: There isn't a great amount of diversity at the school but it's not a big problem either.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: I've never understood why college costs so much. But compared to other colleges it isn't as bad.

Career Services: I don't know much about the alumni accounts here but so far the alumni always come back. Quite a few have gone back to become staff.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Although things get stressful like any other college, the staff at DCAD really want to see us succeed so they work hard to help us.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: My class is small so it's a more intimate setting. Intimate, in the sense that everyone can get individual help from the professors. We know them on a first name basis rather than a number.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: There aren't many activities because it's a small school.

3 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: It is honestly an everyday struggle as not only being a college student but a starving artist.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: DCAD is my second home. I made several great friends here and many memories to look back on in the future. The fact that DCAD is an art school and we do not have to take math, science, and whatever nonsense artists do not need to take or pay for.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I definitely grew as an artist and the faculty here are great. The courses are demanding but the teachers are there when you need them.

3 College Junior

Student Body: Before attending this art school, I knew I would interact with strange people, but most of them are nice and there are an abundant of people that are great friends of mine.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Most art school tuition nationwide is extremely ridiculously high. This was the only art school I can afford and the financial aid is great.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Throughout all of the courses provided for students to take, you definitely grow as an artist and become more knowledgable. The courses will break you down with tons of workload.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The school is very small with not much to do. I wish the campus was gated and bigger. Also, the studios could be bigger.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I've been involved with DCAD since 11th grade. My school have given me the best experience of my school years =, I have ever received.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The professors are very helpful. From the 1st day of class, to now, I feel like I have improve a lot.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The value of my degree is very important for the career I am striving for.
