RMCAD is the best place for unleashing your creativity. Close to home, great people and teachers! Everyone is so nice and caring, everyone respects you!
I enjoyed RMCAD, i learned so much there by visual learning, teachers always have compassion for you, the staff is very clear and helpful when it comes to hard questions, the advisers always are a step forward, SLC which is Student Learning Center at RMCAD are people who genuinely care, and help you through the toughest times!
Review Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design
Rocky Mountain or RMCAD for short is a small community of many gifted and talented artists. I have been attending and meeting many different students and teachers who are all open to one anothet and it feels as a family rather than a school. You create an atmosphere of freedom of speech and self expression and the faculty there is there to embrace it and guide you in your artistsic process as you move onward to your designated art field. The variety of classes is also amazing, we range from Sociology to Drawing and Psychology to Animation, its honestly a school worth noting.
The only thing that upsets me about my school is the administration. They are unsure of themselves, they lack student rapport, they appear to be greedy in an already for-profit program, and student admission numbers seem to take priority over well qualified students. They seem to take anyone without question. It's very sad!
