Everything goes by too quickly. Professors either take too long to explain a project which doesn't leave a lot of time to actually do it, or there are many projects given at a short amount of time that it may be hard to keep up. The teachers do try to help students frequently through critiques or on how to do something. However, the expectation of quality varies as some can give a project that was done very simple an A while either some might give it a C. Students are usually friendly, but most of the time we don't get to know each other unless we meet in the student lounge. Instead, students are working in a confine space, usually in front of their computer with only their neighbors to help guide each other. The building is way too small. While it's easy to get into classes, there's not a lot of places that students can hang around.

Honestly, the teachers there try to push students to improve. They try to help you improve your craft into something that you can use for your future. Sometimes, they even mention opportunities that have helped them or advice that can possibly help you. Sometimes it gets difficult, but it helps to know that it's difficult. If it weren't, then what would be the point, really? I feel like I've actually learned something there even though it's only been 6 months, and I can't wait to learn more.
