Sad, but true.BrightArt & Design Department
Sad, but true. VIC is closing down for good at the end of the 2014 Summer Session.
While I did mildly enjoy the small school experience, a better education at better prices could have been found elsewhere. VIC, six years ago when I graduated was already falling apart from 2 decades of complacency, neglect, and mismanagement. It's a little surprising they even made it past Spring 2013.Probably should have shut down years ago.

10. Find a school with reasonable tuition, acceptable facilities, and professors with experience!!
11. I would have never applied to this school if I had any idea I was as bad as it is.12. Be Smart!! Go to a school that has a good reputation and that you can be proud to say that it is your school. I cannot say that about VI.

Question
It's official my alma mater has lost theirFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
It's official my alma mater has lost their SACS Accreditation. VI has been on a steady decline since the 90's. When I graduated in 2000, I just knew from the look of the place... What with the declining enrollment, the buildings slowly falling apart, loss of good professors, etc... That VI probably only had a few years left. 13 years later they're down to barely 500 students. It's sad and pathetic to see the current President lie and willfully deceive the few incoming students of the truth of how far gone the school is. It's time for VI to close down.
