The school is pretty effective and everyone here is very nice to you! Teachers really care for their students and do whatever they can to make sure the students are learning better and not give too much work.

The key is to work hard and improve whether you applied in culinary, media arts, fashion, or film maker. There is no competition other than challenging yourself to prove your passion.

I've been enrolled in this school for a little over a year and this place has it's ups and downs. For positives, everyone is nice and are not hard to approach if you have questions or concerns. For negatives, as about almost anyone knows of how expensive tuition fees are. You are to pay monthly fees otherwise you will be put on hold before you can register any classes. Every once in a while, they remodel some parts inside of the school that closes certain halls. And sometimes staff would move to a different location.
I used to major in Graphic Design, but switched to Animation in the Media Arts program because I felt like trying something fresh. Being part of Media Arts made me feel like I belonged there and the workload is not too bad (no procrastination)!
