Date: Dec 31 1969
Major: Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc (This Major's Salary over time)
Graphic Design Department should have informed students that this program is open to students of all majors not just those with design background. I feel that I have wasted my time and money, paying high price for little returns. Some class that is said to be difficult is not really academically challenged but what makes it difficult is the inadequate instructor.

At this level of higher education, I find it rather irritating that the instructor still focuses on basic fonts, poster design, how to write heading, what subhead is, page tiling, even how to set margins.

Most instructors are not helpful and often tell students to get help elsewhere be it the ESL lab, the type lab, and other fellow students.

The school takes too many advantages from students. Everything is about business.

Academic advisor is not well-informed and not willing to help. When asking something outside of their scope of responsibility, I was told that it wasn?t their job. I had to fumble my way through various departments to get an answer I wanted.
