While the professors are in the industry, some

Dec 29 2013Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
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.

I think the school is a joke

Apr 21 2013Music Education
I think the school is a joke. I have spent thousands of dollars to learn what I could've learned on my own playing with the software for a day. I recommend saving up and buying all the equipment that you use here. Not worth the money and they leaning is so unstructured. Just random people from the industry talking bout random shit at random times then just throwing homework on you like you have all the time in the world. The labs are hard to get access to because of the amount of people there are with different schedules it just gets booked. The schoo should supply the software for your assignments. For fuck sakes your tuition would cover it without it making too big of a dent in their wallet.

Major: Fashion Design

Jun 26 2012Art & Design Department
Major: Fashion Design.The online department is awful, the quality of the students' works is beyond belief, and I mean in a bad way. Majority of them draw like little kids, I guess it's understandable since this school accepts ANYONE without asking any portfolios. On top of that, most online students don't have any sense of deadline and turn crappy assignments that are obviously done in the last minute. They don't teach you anything new about construction, everything they teach you can be found in books. I'm very frustrated with the quality of fashion department that they have here. They don't have any prominent career recruiting programs like other schools, once you graduate, good luck in finding jobs or internships. Faculty personnel is hard to reach. Everything is a big disappointment, so if you are interested in applying into their fashion programs, just skip it, don't even bother. Better go to Parsons where the education is worth the money, or FIT where it's a lot cheaper even if you are out of state students.
