Not for complainers and crybabies. You need to have a mindset of giving your guts up to accomplish things in the school. Lower terms are oriented toward mastering technical skills. As you enter upper term, you need to have a clear planning for yourself to determine what you want to get out of the education. no one gave a fuck about GPA. It's all about work.
The amount of work being done here in the school are more challenging than the real world situations. If you can make it through the program you can certainly accomplish anything in life.

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 04:37:23 GMT StudentsReview 115-182780 115-182780 115 14 Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc Female Undergraduate Class 2019 3rd Year Neutral There are some social life going on with certain group of students. They are the popular kids at school because the professors like their work and they get a lot of exposure. Other groups are the ones that knew each other before coming to school. So if you don't know anyone before coming to school, good luck making real friends.

Some people say you are competing with yourself in this school. I don't agree because if that's only one spot for a job, your classmates are your potiential competitions. And if the professors like you, they will give you special treatments. If you are just an average student, you sometimes get put aside because you are not special. The professors subconsciously create a toxic environment for the students. It's a competitive school and students are judgmental and talk about each other behind each other's back. The students are very smart and inspiring, but art and design can be very subjective. The school likes minimalistic asthetic because that's considered mainstream and the industry likes it.

Most of the students in ArtCenter don't get enough sleep. They sleep in their car, at school's sofa/table/floor, and sometimes in class. They always pull all nighter. Who has the time to socialize when you don't even have time to sleep and even shower? And yes, some students smell because they don't have time to shower.

They have strong accents and only tend to teach other asians students ( Chinese to Chinese, Korean to Korean and so on, Americans are basically neglected and made to fail). Its an American School but seems to have extremely racist foreign teachers. It is very hard for an American to learn anything from these Asians because of accent and cultural differences. Very racist attitudes. If you are an American choose your classes carefully and make sure you pick a class with an American teacher not an Asian one or you will be SOOOOOORY...
