4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Almost everything about this school is amazing! The quality of the professors and courses are excellent. The professors especially are usually published artists in the fields they teach and have more knowledgeable teaching styles, they also greatly encourage class interaction, are often available by email or have scheduled office hours, and are often just as artistically "unique" as the students they teach, which allows them to better relate to and communicate with their students. The class sizes, despite their popularity are usually small to average size, which most students greatly enjoy. And the school definitely offers a wide variety of classes. The school's quality is excellent.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school works with the local community to help it's students succeed in getting a job in their field. The school often works with movie producers and film crews and actually have a policy that the crew has to use student interns for their film! The rest of the fields offer similar programs to their students, trying to help them get a hands-on, immersive experience in their career field before graduating; many actually end up taking part in a published work in their field before graduating!

Campus Housing: There are a few problems here and there, but overall it's good, it's not over-run with problems. But there are minor updating issues with the bathrooms, the doors' security, the R.A.s' availability, and a problem with smoking in dorms. I'm not sure about the smoking thing, most students go outside to smoke cigarettes but I don't know for sure if some of the students smoke other things or just incense in their rooms. The staff, especially the security, take the issue very seriously though. Overall, though, aside from a few outdated issues the housing is very well-kept and regularly cleaned.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm still attending college, so I think based on my experiences so far, this school is a great environment for those who want to pursue a career in the arts. The staff and students are highly diverse and supportive of each other; the facilities are amazing and of great quality, there is a wide variety of classes and topics available, and the school aims to make sure that students who graduate by the time they do, will not only feel they know how to thrive in their career field, but will also have had a hand in a publish piece of work in their chosen artistic field.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: As of late the security on campus has been subpar, however, there are efforts being made to fix these issues. Though it is still hard to feel safe under specific circumstances.

Health & Safety: The current head of security is pretty lame, but the actual guards are all really nice people and will help you however they can. I never feel like I'll be attacked while walking around campus, but it's always a possibility. I haven't heard much about campus crime aside from the usual vandalism, though our no-weapons policy is broken a lot.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are generally cool and have us do things relevant to our major. There are a few exceptions, of course. The classes are always small, even the lecture-type ones; the most people I've ever had in a class was around 30. The professors genuinely care about our success. However, taking classes outside of your major can be difficult. We have a required number of electives, but special permission, which can be hard to get, is required to take basically anything not in your department. You apply to a specific program and start in that major from your freshman year, which unfortunately means there's not many opportunities to explore other art fields.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I don't know too much about it, but from what I understand, there's basically no digital arts opportunity in the area. I haven't ever spoken to the career center, so I'm not sure how helpful they are in terms of internships.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Honestly, it doesn't seem like living on campus can be an enjoyable experience at any college, at least from what I've heard. The good thing about this school is that the campus is very small, so all the dorms are close to classes. Also, free laundry, but there's only two washers and dryers per hall or wing. There are ants literally everywhere and no amount of pesticide will kill them.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The program I'm in, Digital Arts, is pretty good; the professors are all industry professionals who know what they're doing snd genuinely want to help us. The classes offered within the department are excellent. However, being in the middle of nowhere in Santa Fe, there are virtually no internship or career opportunities, which is problematic. Also, the university itself is for-profit and overall isn't that great. The food sucks. The dorms suck. The program kind of makes up for it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had a great time so far making new friends and attending classes I am interested in.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are some work-studies and internships available on campus but seem to be taken fast.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Have not had an issues this campus housing and feel the community to nice.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: students and faculty are very nice and encouraging and make it easy to feel comfortable.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: I personally have not had a problem with safety on campus. I have heard of problems from others, but it doesn't usually involve students. It involves outside people coming on campus and getting into the dorms. Crime is pretty low. Wish there was more lighting, especially on the north side of campus and close to the film school

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The film classes at this school are great. Most of the professors are very helpful and really care and take the time to help all students learn, even if the students are in their class. There are some exceptions, and they're pretty serious considering film students have to take all the same classes, there's very little room for customization. But overall, its a great program. It's a practical education, not a theoretical one.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I'm not entirely sure. Many film students already have jobs in the film industry, but I don't know about previous students. The career services office is very helpful, but have not used it extensively. But it's more up to the students to find positions or at least let administration know they're interested in jobs or whatever. The administration won't reach out to the students
