If you are an interior design student

Feb 08 2014Interior Design
If you are an interior design student.... It would be helpful to have taken a basic drawing course that includes the fundamental basics of sketch, perspective drawing, adding value/shading, basic figures, and drawing interior/exterior environments. These principles will be used repeatedly throughout every class in the architecture and interior design course. Without this basic knowledge, you will be struggling to complete the assignments within a reasonable amount of time. This is a very expensive college at $2,200 per class. I just don't feel this is a correct match for my creative goals. I cannot reiterate enough that basic drawing and basic skills in photoshop will be beneficial to anyone enrolling in the AID program

While the professors are in the industry, some

While the professors are in the industry, some of them are very unhelpful. I was in the web design and new media and the instructors never gave feed back in a timely manner, sometimes assignments weren't looked at for more than a week. And then they would give you a B or A and say it looked great and no feedback. When you know there were issues that had to be resolved. All they care about is the money they rake in for tuition. They don't care about updating their curriculum, their instructions confuse a lot of the students because the curriculum says one thing and then the homework assignments say some thing else. Don't go to this school, at least don't take Web Design and New Media.

you have the feeling

you have the feeling there are things that clearly could be improved in the school as well as the program but the people in charge avoid taking responsibility or don't care about it.
