I attended during the years of 92-93 andQuite BrightInterior Design
I attended during the years of 92-93 and from reading about other student's experiences I can now see that this college has been pulling the same scam for years now. I had the same incident happen as another student had mentioned that when my student loan didn't come in on time to their office I was kicked out within 1 1/2 wks and luckily a friend from New York was living In Los Angeles at the time and I lived in her loft until I could get enough money together to head back to NY. It was a horrible experience. Brooks College and along with CEC need to be prosecuted for these actions on the students.

Question
Brooks College is only good for one thing,Quite BrightOther
Brooks College is only good for one thing, and that is building your people skills. Because the campus was so small you were on top of each other, so you had to have people skill to keep from beating up each other every other day. The lessons I learned were pretty good and the school did help you find jobs, jobs at UPS or McDonalds. They didn’t help you land a job in your field choice, I graduated in 2004 and I have yet to receive my diploma nor can I get my transcript so I can get a better education at a better school. That’s all I really want is my transcript, you can keep the diploma it isn’t worth the paper it’s written on. Please don’t waste your time and money at Brooks College you can do much better some place else.

Question
I have mixed feelings about Brooks.Quite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I have mixed feelings about Brooks. The time i spent there was great and bad at the same time. I got a chance to live in california, met some cool people, and to this day i miss the time I spent there, however academically I didn't really learn much. Sure I learned some things about design programs i didn't know, but nothing i couldn't have learned on my own from a book from borders in a relatively short amount of time. and forget about math, science, and english. I learned more in high school already. The facility was pretty crappy, but I was lucky enough to get a decent quality room, so i enjoyed living there. The faculty was not too much help and seemed like they were just going to work; didn't really care about the students. My roommate had a horrible time with the financial department and is still struggling to pay his loans. As far as getting a job after graduation, they were of no help at all. And as it turns out I could have gotten the design job i have now without having attended Brooks at all. But I guess none of this matters since it'll be closing in 2009 and I doubt they are accepting new students anymore.
