Party Scene: Few and far between... everyone's very focused on creating and doing well. There were parties, and a lot of school functions, but not a lot of typical college "parties".

Scholarships: In my past experience my aid was fairly easy to gain, however I did need to ask for additional loans and will certainly have to again this coming year.

Local Area: We are located near the beach, and have several museums and performances that are going on around us. there is a field for the nature lover, a couple of malls and shoping squares, and down town is close by. The area is more catered to the rich and elderly but its nice to go down to the beach or to some of the local restaurant.

Scholarships: There is someone there to answer your questions, even if there offices hours can be a little constricting, as they are not open on the weekends.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Not a lot of cheep choices close to the school, but the ones that are are pretty nice for their price. There are quite a few single studios and then normal apartments, but the school doesn't help you find them, your own your own. though there are great websites that help students locate places to live.

Administration: the Public safety officers are very helpful and very friendly, always willing to give you a escort where you need to go. the RA are always around and on call for when you need help or if you have any questions though some of the rules can get really confusing. Administration staff vary in helpfulness, really depends on who it is your asking and what your asking.

Campus Housing: They are not all great, some of the newer buildings are very nice to live in, very clean and open. How ever some of the dorms are old and are in need of serous repairs.

Health & Safety: I had an accident on campus, right outside my classroom on the second floor in late Sept. 2013. I slipped and fell hard on a huge water puddle.. Security came to help me, and he made a comment to my roommate & I that the openness to the elements/rain have been bad in this area, and he was surprised that nobody has been seriously hurt before. When the incident report was reviewed, his comment had been stricken. I have had wrist problems and multiple surgeries over the past 7 years. I have a torn ligament that prohibits me from taking extensive notes, or drawing for hours at a time. This accident put my rehab back by about a year or two. My parents (both alumni of Ringling) and myself wanted to settle with the school directly... possibly by giving me a tuition credit. The administration decided to use an insurance company, which the school changed two months later. We have submitted every dr. report, bill, statements needed, and we are still waiting.

The school also has a clinic on campus. It is a good clinic, IF you can get in to see someone without missing two classes... and its operating hours are very sporadic. At times it is not worth it, as the line is long, and they will close before you are seen. Many times I have gone there during the day, and the clinic is not open.

Academics: Our work load is intense. But when I graduate I will have so many skills and certifications that I will be able to find a career job in my Major within just a few months... If I am not employed by graduation. I normally do at least one all-nighter per. week, if not more. for my hard work has paid off so far, as of my Spring grades were a 4.0, and I continued to be on the Presidents List. Ringling has Job Fairs, and so many well known companies come all year long to review portfolios. Some of them are, Disney &Pixar, Hallmark, Target, Universal Studios, Privately owned Interior Design groups from large cities all over the US.

5 College Junior

Academics: Ringling has a very diverse curriculum. Interior Design, Graphic Design, Illustration, Animation, Photography, Fine Arts, The Business of Graphic Design, Computer Graphics, Computer Gaming, and probably a few more that I can't remember. For my degree in Interior Design, I will have to get an apprentice job in my field to get a separate accreditation. I am a rising Jr. and this summer I have two jobs, one of witch is working for the largest photography & design studios in the US. It is called 'Kreber Studios', and they photograph room scenes for large furniture manufactures and also for retail companies.

Administration: Our RA's don't follow through with the schools rules and policies. If we enter a complaint, it is either forgotten, or passed along without any follow through. We live in an old (1950's) duplex, when we move:d in last fall the plumbing that connected our toilet, sink and shower/tub had been compromised by decades of roots from the shade trees outside. It was so bad, that when my mother came to visit a month after school started it still bubbled water into the tub whenever we flushed the toilet, she called Security. They said that no report had been made, even tho we had called twice before. With my mother's stern complaint, they showed up within the hour.

We also had a terrible mold problem, which they blamed us as we had the AC unit in the 'Run' setting. We were never told anything about the AC, and I personally lost all my shoes and bags in my closet, wooden utensils in kitchen, etc.

Off-Campus Dining: Ringling is a very expensive College. With my major of Interior Design, I have very little time to go off of campus to eat.

For most meals, my roommate and I cook our meals. For special occasions, there are several convenience restaurants for our parents to take us to eat. You can find many different cultural places to eat at a variety of costs.

I don't know of any places that offer student discounts. Our favorite place is Starbucks, as it is open 24/7.

Local Area: Ringling College of Art & Design is located in Sarasota, Fl. We have many excellent museums, and galleries to visit. The John Ringling museum and grounds are open for our students to use anytime, including a perfect place to draw or sketch the amazing architecture from the early 1940's.

We are about fifteen minutEs from Lido Key, and the State Park located at the end of the Key. Shopping for students on a budget are also within a short drive, with Walmart, Sam's Club and K-Mart. My major of Interior Design is one of the hardest at Ringling and therefor My roommate and I usually cook.
