My specific major, filmmaking (cinematography) is some of the best in the country. Our faculty and facility is most likely the two strongest factors at this school. We have industry professionals who have worked for many years and some are still working today. We have 3 large sound stages. One of which, an independent feature used for their film. The school has a numerous amount of cameras, grip, and lighting equipment. More than you will probably have access to when you first leave the school. The workload is tough but good for you. The school productions lets you practice your craft so it does not become a film studies school but one that specializes in film production. The school has a staff member dedicated solely to helping students find internships and jobs. All in all, it's really the best bang for the buck school one could ask for. It's slowly becoming more popular, so come study here asap!

My school is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. Being able to do something to what I love and present it on stage often times during the school year is exciting. I like how there are super well know guests of every kind of talent come and visit our college and talk to the classes and inspire the environment and energy. The students are always doing something with their majors and it would always be different with too much creative, which is what makes them epic! I'm going to spend the rest of my years here most definitely.

Guys and Girls? In the last four years here, I have not been in many 'relationships'. Most of the time people are focusing on their art/craft to dedicate any serious time into maintaing a boyfriend/girlfriend experience. Since you're in the south, it's mostly white & black people. Not much diversity here. It's not LA or NY obviously. People are mainly interested in their art/craft whether it's Drama, Dance, Film, D&P, Music, or Visual Arts. Everyone dresses differently, but you can usually tell what department someone is in just by the way they act and dress. Social life? Relationships? haha good luck!
