Don't look at the other people's comments, mostQuite BrightArt & Design Department
Don't look at the other people's comments, most are unable to cope with the popularity types and are stuck in a dungeon with no windows. Alot of kids today are afraid of making conversation with cute girls/guys or other types. The social scene of ringling is great, if you can network (if you can say hello to a new student) then your chances of meeting new people.

As far as Education it's amazing (computer Animation), sure ringling has a ton of other majors and I think they are competitive to. RISD is known for thier fashion and industrial design so I hate when kids are complaining when they infact made the bad choice of going to ringling. It takes hardwork to be succesful at ringling and if your the types that like to sit back and relax then maybe you should transfer to Full Sail or AAU because those colleges are notorius for being Diploma Mills.

As far as Ringlings location, it's getting better and better yes it may be in the "projects" but it's like living in the city of boston or even miami theres not one place in a state where shit never hits the fan. As far as I can tell in my 4 years I've never seen prostitutes/whores/gangbangers/driveby's, Alot of kids make these things up because they are actually sitting in thier dorm afraid to see what real life is. Stop playing world of warcraft and get a social life! Overall Ringling is one of the best colleges you can get into without having a GPA of 4.0 (/cough Calarts). If your into Computer Animation, illustration, graphic design and others (except ID,FD) then Ringling is where you want to be and the $35k/yr is very very worth it.

Ringling is by farAverageArt & Design Department
Ringling is by far the best undergrad Computer Animation School in the U.S. Other Design schools cost more for an education that is inferior. The crop of animations that come from the school Every Year is testament to the quality.

I decided to go to school in myBrightOther
I decided to go to school in my 30s and did major research before selecting a school. Ringling had the best curriculum, student teacher ratio, tuition, reputation, faculty, campus, support community, philosophy, location... you name it. The four years I spent at RSAD were the toughest, but the best I ever spent. I'll be paying off student loans for the rest of my life, but would never trade my days there for anything. I miss the teachers, the environment and my classmates everyday. I'll cherish my RSAD days forever. I highly recommend the school.
