    If you’re a minority, I strongly suggest you don’t attend this college. As a student of Ringling College of Art and Design I’ve experienced discrimination from our public safety officers like being stopes stopped several times ask “ Do I belong here, are you a student?” Upon reporting this issue to our institution no one has done anything about these issues. Besides experiencing racism from public safety, I’ve also encountered the same issues one student and one teacher. Other issues we have on our campus is that we don’t have adequate resources for non computer animation student, if you’re not in computer animation (CA) or game art frankly the school doesn’t care about you. The CA students gets priority on the first floors in the library so if their rendering project you can’t be on the first floor. The library is the only place on campus that’s open 24 hours, all other buildings closes at 2:00 A.M. then that’s when everyone goes to the library. As for the other majors building our buildings are supposed to close at 2:00 A.M. but public safety kicks us out and locks the doors at 10:00 P.M. After spring break I spoke with some students it appears many student transfer out or leave because of the education we’re receiving. ( we aren’t truly taught how to use our programs, so as a student that likes to help other students we are the one that help the students that don’t know how to use our programs. Which take some times from our own project) Needles to say our school only cares about money and the amount of incoming student they could get they don’t care if you leave because they already got your money. My advice is save your money and find a better school.

    Come to this school with an open mind and be ready to learn. Never assume to be the smartest or best in the room. Learn from your professors and work off of their critiques.

    Ringling does very well in the marketing department. I would advise you to do very thorough research on all your available options. Do not get into deep debt because you think you need to go to a reputable school to do well in animation, film, games, etc, where the degree hardly matters (or at most, where you got the degree from doesn't). There are plenty of online options that you can learn from while getting another degree. If you can afford it, consider Gnomon.
