What are the fellow students like (personalitywise) in it?

Very unique. Most artist are very open-minded, versatile. A few are extremely aggressive or opinionary. Then, some that are very isolated; quiet natured. Then some that are very conversational and social. Some are very professional, technical, and primarily business or "money-minded". The character of most artists can be very moody or often misunderstood by many. Basically, one never comes to truely KNOW or understand an artist without clear observation, patience, and time. The minds, hearts, domestic environments, and social lives of most artists are usually extremely rare. We live in an actual "World of Our Own." Artists think, live and see, practically, EVERYTHING differently from others: (those that are not artists or in some way associated with the Art world.)

Common Misconceptions

Artist are often "tagged" as weird, unusually odd; freaks or nerds. Sometimes, artist (especially creative writers or musicians,) are labelled as strange, crazy or often sexually misinterpreted. Most artist live, eat, sleep, work, dress, socialize, entertain, and even talk in very unique ways. The environment among artist (including their language and dress styles) can seem like "an actual city of a rare culture of people" to those that aren't artists or have some kind of active affiliation with them.

Or perhaps the jobs one gets with the major just aren't that great. *** not counting those currently in grad school
