    This school is great except for Experimental Animation. There is sexual harassment and extreme favoritism of rich students. The Character Animation Program is great, Music is Good, Film Video Great, Art Good but DO NOT ATTEND EXPERIMENTAL ANIMATION WITHOUT READING THIS FIRST.

    it looks like a great school for those interested in any aspects of theater. they have a lot of specific majors that you can't find at other schools. i can't wait to apply to the technical theater program at the school.

    Really awesome if you know what you want. This university is all about the business, you don't want to muck around waiting for someone to tell you what you're going to do.
