LCAD is a wonderful school, being able to learn from industry professionals makes the experience 100 times better and makes everything worthwhile. The environment is very safe and comforting and I would love to see more people attending this school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Student housing is very difficult, there are not many available spaces, and finding off-campus housing is very difficult due to the expenses and the area.

I love the teachers, my peers, and overall setup, but it is definitely unorganized when it comes to finical aid and academics. Criticism is amazing and improvement is noticeable.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I don't like the finical aid process and teacher unviability. Sometimes they schedule events during your classes.

I like the town, Laguna Beach, and the staff in the Game Art major genuinely care about every student.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The location of the campus buildings is hellish to commute to during rush. Laguna Beach has one road in and out and it is ridiculous. The college buildings are spread along Laguna Canyon Rd and each is difficult to get to.

The professors are passionate, understanding, and approachable. If you're an introvert like me, you won't suffer in silence. Everyone is shy at first but still friendly. Laguna College of Art and Design has a welcoming, honest, and friendly learning environment that strives to bring out the best in every student. The only way you can fail is if you don't put in the time and effort. There are plenty of resources available to help you succeed. You can be confident that you will find your place in the industry by attending this school and by talking to professors.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There aren't many good places to eat on campus. Preferably, bring your own lunch as the vending machines can be an expensive option. There is a weekly food truck but it is also pricey and they may not always be present for long. They are available only during lunch hours and, after that, you only have the vending machines as an option.

This college allows a lot of room for expression and suggestion due to its small student population; you can develop more personal relationships with your professors and get something truly unique out of your classes.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

There is disorganization within the administrative faculties of the school, and it often takes lots of self-advocacy to correct errors on their part.

This college is great for career building, but do not come if you are just looking for a place to party. Social life and food options are low, however, the professional relationships and skills you will build are perfect for those who know exactly what career field they want to go into.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The lack of a cafeteria and meal plan is my only complaint. The drive between campuses is also dangerous (turning onto Laguna Canyon Road with no stoplights).
