first thing I can say about this school is that
it always made me angry. It had potential but could
never seem to live up to a true college experience.
I started as a Graphic Design major and I
hated it. First of all the freshman year foundations classes
(basically the same for all of the design majors) are
a joke. I repeat, A JOKE. I could have easily
gone on the internet and learned all of those things
in a fraction of the time. It was a waste
of my life, I painted shapes and was told my
craftsmanship was slightly poor. I did not pay money to
paint! Once the actual classes got started, I learned that
both my professors and fellow students were full of themselves.
Everyone thinks they're amazing and try to bring you down.
Its competitive in a destructive way. I considered dropping out.
When I switched to Digital Design, things got much better
and I was happy I didn't give up. My professors
were actually competent, and completely willing to teach and help.
If I could say any of my money at this
school was worth spending, it was in the last half
of my college experience as a Digital Design major.
So why was I angry? Aside from only getting 2
good years of education (and a nice scholarship), the school
itself made me feel awful in every way:
offices were the bane of my existence. I hated every
one in charge at this school and with the exception
of a few good professors, I felt like I was
just a number.
-Aside from Architecture, Fashion, and Business
majors, you are not a priority.
-Just far enough from
the city that it is a hassle to go there
more than once a week. Let's be honest, it's in
the suburbs. More action/parties at a high school
grew to loathe the city of Philadelphia
sometimes a joke. The area isn't so bad but still.
Lastly, why care about how pretty the campus is? Worry
about the quality of your education. When I left it
seemed they were making big changes so hopefully (depending on
the major) you get something worthwhile.
