The professors are very knowledgeable and provide an excellent education. There are also many studios, departments, and resources available for students to use for both school work and personal projects.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The attendance policy is rather strict and sometimes unclear about what is considered an excused versus unexcused absence. Classes are also very long and will take up much of your time.
