There is a wealth of knowledge and incredible access to processes and machinery to help get started on your art/design journey. I also find it incredibly well located, in the heart of Chicago's Loop, meaning that there is nothing that you need that you can not find close by.
SAIC is an awesome school for visual arts. I enjoy the visiting artist component of the school. This is where professional artist present to students their works and experiences in the art world.
