Laguna College of Art & Design Reviews
Beautiful mountains and an extremely gorgeous ocean view makes LCAD one of the most natural and refreshing college. Consisting of a very vigorous academic system only improves the students ability. The school provides so many utilities just for the students such as cintiqs, drawing tablets, computer rooms, a huge library full of comfortable chairs, multiple rooms for the students use, and transit for to transfer between campuses. This school provides only the best, experienced teachers who love teaching their students. Providing many free events for their students to help aid them along their education and career. Even taking it as far as to plan job events at the campus that has Disney, Blizzard, and other companies to attend and hire students.
The campus is quite beautiful and quaint with a wonderful artistic atmosphere. The professors are very knowledgeable and work within the fields they are teaching; though the work load is rather heavy. However, things worthwhile don’t come easy and hard work and dedication is a must. With that being said, it would be nice if the campus wasn’t broken into two different locations. Also, crossing Laguna Canyon Rd can be quite dangerous, traffic is absolutely horrible and people don’t like stopping even though there’s a light!
I love the atmosphere. Laguna College of Art & Design located in Laguna Beach is a wonderful school for what its meant for; Arts. The school lacks any athletics and little to no party scene. But it really focuses on what its supposed to do; land you a very well paying job in your desired art career graduating with a BFA or MFA. They really focus on getting you ready for the workforce and hold annual job fairs. These aren't just any job fair though, these are huge events where big name companies come and bid on top students who they want to hire. Essentially they come to find the top of the top and will keep offering more money for the outstanding students until the other companies don't want to raise the pay any more. This creates very high paying jobs upon graduation and helps with their 98% employment rate straight out of college.
