Academic Experience: It's hard work, but if you can do it, then do it.

Academic Experience: As a student who is specializing in audio, it is very interesting how my course sequence has been laid out. Just this year, I took a class about writing a synthesizer using code. It was an amazing experience. We get access to some of the best audio technology in a special room filled with music equipment, it's great.

Academic Experience: Like I said before, it's actually difficult. The classes are enjoyable and the professors are amazing. Everything is pertinent to what I want to do after college.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The program is constantly changing, which is both good and bad. As a BDFA, the cirriculum has changed at least 3 times in the course of a single semester. This is because yes, the industry is changing, but it's also extremely difficult to finish the program on track, there are students that have been here an extra 3 semesters trying to finish up the program.

Academic Experience: In the BFA program you are expected not to even sleep. I took the Recommended course load and that was 21 credits my first semester. Out of the initial estimated 200 art students in this program, usually only around 15 graduate. This isn't because they aren't good artists or good students. It is simply because they are so ran dry and pushed to the point of extreme depression, suicidal thoughts and an extremely stressful life. You wake up, with maybe 3 hours of sleep, you work all day until you go home, where you work until maybe 3 in the morning to get it all done. I ultimately became one of the many to drop out. I promise you that this stress is not worth it. If you want to learn this then look up things online, study hard but don't put yourself through this stress.
