Major: Art & Design Department (This Major's Salary over time)
This college is useful if you're truly interested in teaching yourself. Most students attending here retain the 'high school mentality' that's become so comfortable for them and are more interested in hanging out in the student lounge staring at a television for hours and gossiping about their fellow students instead of attempting to produce quality, thought provoking work. Throughout the four years I attended this institution of higher learning, I was never truly inspired by the creativity output of most of my fellow students. This is perhaps partly due to the school administration treating its student body like a bunch of pre-schoolers with a numbered name tag attached to their person. How can they take themselves seriously if noone else is? The valuable skills such as self-marketing, developing a resume, and other basic business aspects involved within the art world that should be taught on some level are overlooked in this environment. Career services are a joke. You'll be lucky to find some menial job after graduating.
The institution is more concerned with pumping students money into the exterior of the facilities (landscaping,building rennovations) to lure in perspective students instead of hiring better qualified teachers and more of them so you can actually get the classes you want every semester and graduate on time (total student population of 360 and classes getting filled?) The good thing about all this is that if you are motivated and interested in pursuing your own direction, you have total freedom to do so. Since, most of the administration/faculty couldn't care what you're doing. Excellent preparation for graduate school. Although not worth the $13,000 a year tuition (and rising).
