A lot of the work that graduated or near-graduated students have created have been REALLY impressive, in my opinion. Especially since I've seen some of the work of some of the students that are in their first few quarters have produced--there's a lot of growth over the few years that students stay here, and that's what I'm looking forward to. Most of the teachers and employees on campus are very kind and easy to talk to. The Dean is very easy to talk to, too, and sometimes we have events where the Dean brings pizza and students can eat and ask questions about anything. So far, whenever I've had questions, I can usually find someone to answer it pretty easily, and if not then I can find someone who can lead me in the right direction.

If anything, it's WAY better than high school. The classes may be long, but a lot of work gets done, and you only have to come in one day a week per class which honestly makes it a lot easier for me to keep track of everything. Most of the first-quarter classes are pretty useless for students who already know a lot about their craft, but I'm assuming things get harder as time goes on. The class sizes are pretty nice, but not as small as I thought they were going to be--they are about the size of an average high school class. Some of the classes I'm in are a little crowded, but not uncomfortable. The school offers a lot of classes, too, and I'm interested in a lot of them. Overall I really appreciate this school.

A lot of the majors at this school (save for Culinary and maybe Fashion Design) are pretty interchangeable, and a lot of the skills that you might learn in one major will also be applicable in another. Especially if you are doing Animation or Video Game Design. So far the class with the biggest workload has been my Observational Drawing class, but other than that it's pretty easy to stay on top of it. Again, it's my first quarter, so as I get out of the basic classes it'll probably be getting harder. I've got no clue yet.
