My review

The Good:

From what I know (I only have experience with my department) all of the major programs are really great. Most of the faculty are working professionals who can answer all of your questions, there is a big emphasis on building your portfolio, getting your work seen, and being prepared to pursue a career once you graduate, whatever you're studying.

The Bad:

Since it's primarily an art school, the artist attitude of being disorganized or lazy means some of the students are slackers and the professors expect it. If you are willing to put the effort in though, you will be rewarded and have a great experience.

Would I do it again?

Yes, It has been exactly the kind of college experience I wanted and expected when I made my decision to go to this school.

About this school

Biggest influence when choosing this school Program/Major

The financial aid process went smoothly and I received the financial aid I needed.

Professors are generally Experts

The night life is Off Campus

Every student at this school needs A willingness to work hard

Most students spend their Saturday nights Going out to a club, art event, concert, play... it's a diverse student body, so it varies.

About the reviewer

Went to Westford Academy

Currently a Freshman

Another awesome thing is All the students are here because they are passionate about what they do; if they aren't, they usually transfer.
