    I greatly enjoyed my time at Full Sail and feel like you will really get the education you paid for. I did the online Graphic Design BS program. I see a lot of negative reviews for Full Sail on this site. But, from my perspective, it was a great ride and well worth the money. I will say you have to be self-motivated and serious about your education if you are attempting any online program. Every month is a different class and the classes are taught by people who are or were in the Graphic Design field. That greatly helps because you know they know their stuff. I graduated Valedictorian and won Advanced Achievement as well as 5 Course Director Awards. I put in the hard work and Full Sail gave me every opportunity to (for a lack of a better term) sail. I ended up getting a job as Marketing Coordinator & Graphic Designer because of my education at Full Sail. If you are self-motivated I would recommend the Full Sail online programs 100%!

    I have been dreaming of going to this college since middle school. I have always been interested in music and audio and knew this is the college I needed to be at. After graduating high school, my mother still had doubts as she thought the school was insanely expensive and I would never end up using my degree. After I finally convinced her to go to the school and talk with an advisor, I enrolled and haven't looked back since. I look forward to doing assignments and learning the stuff in the courses because I genuinely am interested in what is being taught to us. Going to this school made me fall in love with school all over again and that makes me realize I am doing exactly what I need to be doing. I graduate this year and I am do excited to say I will be graduating from Full Sail University!
    Before I enrolled, many of the artists I worked with mentioned this school as one of the best for artists. I very much enjoyed the Media Design, Master of Fine Arts program. I have been a professional artist for over 20 years, and have enjoyed art as a hobby from childhood. I really wanted to earn the degree to prove to the world that I can excel in art both professionally and academically. I thought I knew all there was to know about media design before I entered the program, but I did learn quite a bit while enrolled, and created a network of artist. Now that I have earned the MFA degree, I have opened the door many more career opportunities. I LOVE FULL SAIL!
