As far as General Education goes.Not so brightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
As far as General Education goes. Irsc is a great place to get credits! But I'm in my 3rd year working a BSA in graphic design. And I have to say I've never seen a place celebrate mediocrity like IRSC does. There is no competition. There is no background in design and the teachers seem either tired and lack luster or bitter and self important. Art in any form is a competitive field and there is no push to become a better artist when we're patting students on the head and sending them off with a gold star.

The only thing thatQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
The only thing that makes this school challenging is the professors high expectations, you will never be able to meet them. They try to be an ivy league school, but do not act like it, they treat the student very poorly. Ft. Pierce and PSL is the armpit of S. FL.

This school is absolutely wonderful.Quite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
This school is absolutely wonderful. I have learned so much from teachers I have taken. There are a few teachers in the school I have avoided to take because of bad reviews but the majority of teachers at the school are wonderful and caring. The environment at IRSC is amazing! It feels like a lazy summer with a soft cool breeze. The campus is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! I have never seen a more friendlier happier campus. I am studying graphic design at IRSC and I find it fun and wonderful. The only advice I would give to IRSC is to please incorporate drawing tablets in the courses. I believe art is really needed in graphic design, IRSC mainly focuses on how to do graphic design and what to do, which is great BUT I believe art is a very important factor in graphic design. The teachers don't teach digital drawing. I would be so happy and grateful if IRSC added a digital drawing class. As of graphic design, this school is absolutely top for graphic design! I went around looking for other colleges and universities to transfer to but I found myself coming right back to IRSC because of the staff, the beauty of the campus, and the teachers. Luckily for me, FAU offers more artsy graphic design, so once I finish my degree here, I plan to go to FAU just to get a bit more knowledge on stuff I lack but am good at. For anyone taking graphic design, THIS IS SERIOUSLY THE BEST SCHOOL IN ALL OF USA! Well, it's the best regarding public schools. In all honesty, private schools are a waste of time and money. If you want to learn graphic design and not have to give up your life to debt, then pick IRSC :). The class rooms are brand-new, everything is nice and sparkly, lots of flowers and trees, so if you're like me and you love nature, then you will love the campus here in Fort. Pierce. Most of the Professors are flexible, relaxed, and not anal about deadlines; exams are pretty easy and nothing really to stress over; and the courses in general are really fun. The students are fun too :).
