I should have never gone to art school.Fine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
I should have never gone to art school. It didn't help get an art job. Some of the staff at usf are nasty people. Including the head chef. He screamed at me for using his toaster on a bagel I brought from home. I got verbally abused in classes in front of everyone for stupid stuff. I am doing ok finacially in an unrelated job, still wanting to do art full time. It just sucks do not go to this crap school, just do not.

The professors are sub-parSuper BrilliantPsychology
The professors are sub-par - especially Prof. R. Daniels. He has no personality to speak of and his teaching style is non-existant. The student is on his own.

While I can't argue against Fort Wayne notQuite BrightDesign Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
While I can't argue against Fort Wayne not being the most exciting place to live, it's definitely not the worst. There are plenty of things to do, and plenty of places to shop. The school itself has improved a lot over the past two years that I have attended. Especially in extra activities. They have done it the past two years, and as far as I know, plan to continue doing a murder mystery theater every February. I went to the first one, and it was great, I heard the second was even better, but was not able to attend due to work.

Prior to attending USF I went to Ball State University, and while I did enjoy that school, it was not the school really that I enjoyed, it was dorm life. My friends at BSU made it fun, not the classes. The teachers didn't care a bit about you (for the most part, there were a select few acceptable human beings on their staff) the class material was full of busy work, and the grading system (for some professors) was based on the professor's opinion of weather or not you were agreeing with their opinions.

Saint Francis is so much better. It's small enough that you actually matter. The teachers care. (At least all of them that I've had so far) The material is challenging, but possible to master with a little effort, and no threat to your own personal opinions.

I can only say that the only complaints I have are:
1. availability of classes is sometimes a bit lacking.2. The particular academic advisor I was assigned was often impossible to get ahold of.
