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'm very happy with my LCAD experience! I was surprised with all the stuff going on here. Classes are very interesting, and there's a plenty of other activities in the college. Teachers are very good and it's always a pleasure to talk with them!
I find LCAD to be an exceptional college with professors who really know what they're doing and truly care about the growth of their students. The class sizes are small so it's easier to get the one on one attention students should have for more effective learning while maintaining a group setting. However, not every major has these same qualities of learning and the administration can sometimes get in the way of some student's learning outcomes. Yet, from personal experience, I love LCAD and it has taught me valuable lessons and nurtured my growth as an art student and soon to be professional in the industry.
