Carolina School of Broadcasting Reviews
Rating 3.5 out of 5 10 reviews
During the Covid pandemic, we spent a lot of time on zoom. Instructors were all on zoom while you could watch from home. Too much roleplaying. Ex: we were asked to try to sell anything. Without any direction or ABC's of sales everyone giggled and made a disaster of their attempts making up how to sell anything. Then it was time for lunch. Complete waste of time and learned NOTHING day after day. After Covid became an excuse for everything. Nobody rarely turned their cams on. No role was ever taken. Most of our class was very discouraged and we expect this school to close soon. I mean it from the bottom of my heart when I say this school is a waste of money and time.I'd look elsewhere . The equipment is outdated. They use Sam automation and no real radio station will ever use that. We came out with no air check or on camera reel. Nothing. Once we done our Carolina Connection project they said that's it congrads your certificate will be in your student file and good luck. Pathedic.
This school is a joke. Most of the reviews are outdated so it's time for a new review in 20/21. There is zero structure to any course. They provide a large book you'll never use. Anything they say in the handbook is not enforced. There is very little hands on. Their website looks impressive, but its all smoke and mirrors. The new tv control room we used 1 week and the instructors didn't even know much about it or show how to use it. We just played with it. Francine just wastes time roleplaying. We got out of class early all the time. I don't see how we met all of our hours. You will sit in the audio lab and listen to Rob go all around the world about advanced settings before you ever learn how to load a track. The only thing they care about is you recording something that makes the school sound good. If I had known this school was this bad I never would have wasted the money. It is not even worth $5,000. And if you consider going in the pandemic-it's worse!
I liked the personal attention the teachers were able to give. Some of the teachers really took extra effort to make sure we were successful. I wish that there was more equipment so students could have more time to get familiar with the equipment and not worry about having to turn it in before the next class needs it.
I'd rather be in class than to do courses online
Small class sizes make it easier for professors to do more with the students
Everyone is nice v and eagar to help you learn
Live radio station, and camera editing it's a fun major
The school is great and Hands on learning makes it more exciting
