4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I appreciate the personal safety workshops on campus but I wish we had them more often.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am confidant I will have no problem finding a job after I graduate. RMCAD provides networking opportunities in the community and Professional Development through the Career Services Department, such as hosting local companies to visit RMCAD for student portfolio reviews and professional development workshops.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences at RMCAD always involve the Student Life Department on Campus and the professors. Our Student Life Department is the most approachable office on Campus and always helpful. Additionally, the professors are some of the most honest, helpful and encouraging individuals I have met.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have not heard of any major crime or assault on campus. I haven't even really heard anything about petty theft. The Campus police patrol extremely regularly, and will check your id if they do not recognize you. They will also happily walk you to your car if you stay late and do not feel safe walking alone. It is honestly a relief to me that they seem to care as much as they do.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are small which is great when it comes to the professor having time for everyone. All but one of the professors I have had seem to care greatly about their students and subjects.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are several things similar to "job fairs" Which are great. However, there is supposedly a portal to go to, to help find jobs and internships, but if you have problems accessing it, do not expect a speedy reply. If you get one back at all. Beyond that the campus does honestly try to help students find jobs in it's own way.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I have not found any Greek life on campus. As far as I know it does not exist, which is why I put that it would be very difficult to get into a fraternity or sorority. You can not join if it does not exist.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I do not really have an opinion on athletics at my school. I say this because as an Art and Design School, there is no sports team, at least as far as I have found. However the campus does have activities that involve out door exercise sometimes and the school, last I heard, is talking about putting in a work out area for students which would be lovely.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The School tries very hard to help it's students. However, it has some problems with scheduling and actually accomplishing things, such as helping students with military benefits. I have a friend who is extremely disappointed in the Fashion Department as well.

While I say this, so far my own department, the military benefits problem not withstanding, has been extremely dedicated and helpful. The department works hard to make sure all classes are up to date and relevant. I would certainly choose to come to this school again if I could do it all over.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Faculty and staff pay very close attention to the health of the students and understand a health related situation.

The security is always active during morning, afternoon, and late night classes and also do their best to ensure the safety of their students and take time to even talk to the students to make sure that everything is OK.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school offers so many clubs, programs, extra help, academic and financial advising that go to a great detail that would help make the student/parent understand, has unique ways of teaching the class that forces one to open their minds and think outside the box more often, and allows students to give feedback to other students and even their teachers.

The one thing I wish they could be more on top of is having more hours for their student store because more often the student store closes early or doesn't open at all than it being open. More help with financial aid and receiving equipment that is needed for future courses, but I think that may be on financial aid itself rather than the school. Lastly, to get more organized with not only office hours, but student documents. It hasn't happened with me, but I've heard from my fellow classmates that their tuition isn't payed for that term, that they are not able to get their equipment on time, etc.

Although with having some negative feedback, the school itself is amazing. You can improve and push yourself without you feeling like you're passing your comfort zone which soon becomes second nature to a student. You have so much technical support, tutoring support, great study groups, one on one time with the teachers, not too big of a classroom, fun and interactive activities where students of different majors and ages can come together and have fun with one another, and unique ways to display artworks and give students a chance to calm down from stress.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Being an online student as an artist at Rocky Mountain can be a little challenge due to the fact I live in Ny and the schools in Colorado. There are people who would support you and is always there for you, just ask them for help through message, FaceTime calls, and phone. These are ways to study much better ,the school overall I think is great for finding more opportunity in careers for that persons major. The only problem is the 1st stages of attending, to make sure the payment for tuition fees is up to date. I need to make more scholarships available for me so I can pay off tuition and moving towards the school. I need the start off.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There is 24-hour security on campus, security/emergency telephones easily accessible, the student parking lot is well-lit, and there has been no serious crime on campus that I know of.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the small class sizes. Faculty are easy to reach and willing to help students however they can. Course participation is easy and comfortable as long as you attend regularly. I have received excellent feedback from my faculty members that I have been able to apply to my studies and practice time in my major. My school offers everything I need from a computer and technology standpoint and my program director is great about helping students like me who do not yet have all the photography equipment needed.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Small class sizes and accessibility to faculty makes my college experience very positive. Courses are demanding but the workload is manageable with good organizational and time management skills. I am in my second semester as a freshman but my program director and I are already working toward my graduation and job placement goals. I get excellent support from all of my faculty and classmates. RMCAD is loaded with state-of-the-art equipment and technology for my degree program. I am having a great college experience at RMCAD.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the school is really great about accomidating students that may have health issues or just need special accomdation so that they can get the work done and feel comfortable with the school. the classes are not that big so that is a plus with getting a one on one experience with the instructor.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the advisors and staff try to the best of their ability to get the students to succeed and they also help them with finding a job in the career path that they were in. when the time comes to picking internship opportunities so the student can get the proper headstart that they need to grow. there is always someone there to help you in that field so that you are not going into things alone or having to find something on your own.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are many security guards that protect the students and the school

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors at this school are experts in their fields. I feel like they are passionate about teaching, and they make all possible effort to aid in your success. I have never been to a school with such great professors until I came to RMCAD. As long as you keep the lines of communication open, put forth your best effort, behave, and show up to class, you will not have any problems.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Almost every day, there is an email about internship opportunities. The school has other programs that bring visiting artists, and industry professionals to the school. At these events, we are able to have our portfolio's reviewed, and information on the current job market. It is nice to talk to business owners about what they are looking for in employees so that you can focus your education on these important skills.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This is probably the best Art school west of the Mason Dixon line. Every teacher, administrator, and staff has been supportive, and caring. You feel like an individual at this school. They understand when you fall on tough times, and they do a lot for their surrounding community. My experience this far as been phenomenal.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's great! Love the environment and the students are awesome

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I love RMCAD! Best instructors and many helpful resources for you that will help you in the long run while you are attending! Best choice I made!

Students Often Come From

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

The most beautiful and inspirational part of RMCAD is the campus itself, with its hometown feel, squirrel chatter, and fresh colors in the summer and fall. But that's just what you can see right away. Eventually, you delve deeper into the excitement of learning something new and unique about your own personal way of self-expression. There is a great sense of discovery and an energy felt throughout the College. The energy flows through sitting down to mold a piece of clay on a wheel to capturing that well-thought-out shot with the camera to translating your imagination into a drawing. Most of all, students thrive on being able to share all of these things with like-minded peers. Sharing your art and allowing it to be critiqued is what really makes you grow as an artist, as well as a person. Being around peers and faculty that have immersed themselves in their respective fields is truly the most amazing part of RMCAD, making it like no other college. It's not just an institution for learning: it's family.

RMCAD is definitely an experience. Set against the backdrop of downtown Denver, it's the ideal location if you want to get away and not sacrifice convenience. That is not to say that just because you go here that you are on "Easy Street." The classes and workload are challenging for both the mind and body. And just like all establishments, RMCAD has its own share of quirks and problems, but in the end, what you put in is what you get out of it.
