Personally, the experience I've had at this school is better than I could have ever expected. The class size is quite small, which makes it feel almost like highschool, but much more inspiring. It's a gorgeous 5-story building with great professors and small, personal classes. I feel as though I'm getting the best possible education for such a low tuition. My only gripe is the area it is located in and the lack of willingness to listen to student opinions and suggestions. However, I feel completely prepared for my future and at my next college for my bachelor's.
Review Delaware College of Art & Design
1. if you attend here you should definitely be serious about your commitment because it is a lot of hard work. 2. it is definitely for those who know they wanna be in art and design. 3. This is a transfer school, your supposed to transfer to a bachelor's program. The professor's are the real back bone of the school many of them are practicing artist. They are dedicated and serious about what you learn. Because the school is small you get more attention and this is great because they push you in the areas you need. The school has a very diverse population and everyone is supportive of your success in art. There isn't a lot to do in Wilmington. I was OK with just coming to work. The meal plan is helpful for dorm and commute people. it's a good idea to save money for class assignments. I visited New York and the school pays for transport . The new internship programs helpful too. The facilities are not the best but not unmanageable.
I think overall I've had a good experience here, however I wouldn't come here again if I had another chance. I think you should only go here if it's an absolute monetary necessity. There are good things however the interior design department is awful. I'd say the way this education will actually be worth it is if you go to Graphic Design or Animation.
