I am a freshman at Ex'pression and so far the course material is all fantastic. I love MSV so far and the people I've met and hung out with have all been super cool. I feel like I belong here, and the older students I've talked to have all been really helpful in giving advice from their experiences. The professors are eager to give real-world advice and encourage their students to push themselves in exactly the ways they ought to in order to pursue a career. Not to mention they all really know their stuff! I am loving the academics and everything so far, and the environment is hella conducive to a positive learning experience.

Don't get me wrong the teachers are great, however i feel that scheduling should be more flexible. Every term each student is given classes that are already scheduled and this makes it hard for some of us that have to work on the side as well. This school is small and there are not that many teachers because lately they have been getting laid off. The school is definitely shrinking. I have learned so much from all my teachers and i am glad that i am still here after one full year. But as time progresses financially it has become harder. If you have close to 100,000 dollars in your bank account you will have no problem attending this school. But for most of us we are trying to find as many scholarships as possible and are working our butts off! If teachers weren't being let go and money wasn't bringing me down inside i would give Expressions an A+.

It's bad, but it doesn't have to be! First the eye popping colors that all the walls are painted with have got to go; This isn't Chuck E Cheese. There are no green spaces! There is a very large parking lot, yuck. Can we get better bike parking and some incentives for biking to school? Let's get a gym, and some good outdoor study spaces, this is California after all! All of us locked in these computer labs working so hard all day and night are getting so soft and pasty. Also can we get lockers? There can be way too many art supplies to bike with every day. And Showers! People start smelling pretty ripe during hell week.
