    I love the hands-on approach, they teach not only how to create architecture with current technology, but also teach us how to draft the "old-fashioned" way, pencils, pens, watercolors and the like. Almost all of the faculty are (or were) practicing professionals in the fields they teach, so their knowledge is very helpful.
    It is a fun school with small campus. All the staff is nice. Climate is awesome. I am architecture atudent and the program is pretty nice. The only thing is quarter system is quite a rush.
