This school was better than I had hoped for, it was surprising to me how little people knew about this school. The school is well connected to the art world, and I have already been in contact with people in my desired field. The teachers here are all working currently in the art field. They go from work to teaching the students. Every class I have taken, although tough, has significantly improved my art and I look forward to seeing more improvement in the future. The school holds many events on the student behalf such as dog distress day to take care and reward their students. The environment at the school is so open and free and has such sweet and caring people. It is a friendly community of students and teachers who support a help each other. The school also has great credibility in the art world, so I know that getting a job will be easier
Review Otis College of Art & Design
Security on campus is pretty darn good! Our school takes sexual assault really seriously, putting all the students through informational activities so we can stay educated.
Housing is pretty great! We live in an apartment complex among residents near the school, so that's pretty cool. They've built dorms for next year, though, so that'll be different.
