I received a Bachelors of Science degree with honors in environmental design from Art Center. I paid over $150,000 for what turned out to be a community college education. The curriculum was a mess, the teachers were disgruntled, the administration was completely consumed with politics and the facilities were pathetic. The administration is still a shambles five years after I graduated!

Art Center did a lousy job of preparing me for a design career. By the time I realized this school was a scam (my third term out of eight), it was too late - I was already on the hook with Sallie Mae for over $35,000. So it was either quit 1/3 of the way through, pay back the money and have nothing to show for it, or speed through and get a degree. I would have been better off taking a $200 AutoCAD course and getting an entry level job at a design firm. Knowing what I know now, I would NEVER make the mistake of attending Art Center again. It was a colossal waste of time and money.
