What Students Are Saying

3.31 Average Rating
Art Center College of Design is known globally for there fundamentals. If you ever heard the saying learn to crawl before walking? Well, this is the department where Art Center specializes. Countless all-nighters and coffee, but the results of your work will make other's jaw drop.
Daniel from La Crescenta, CA
I am currently in orientation week, where the staff and host students have made it very clear that my time at Art College Center of Design will be rigorous. In my few times having toured the school i have seen students intensively working away on projects often times pulling all nighters and it is not rare to see students sleeping on couches in the halls of school.
John Ives. Pasadena
From what I hear from my undergraduate friends and graduate students in the program that I am starting, that the rigor is quite strenuous. The staff and students advise against having any other job while attending. Be prepared to immerse yourself in the academic lifestyle.
Aaron from Canoga Park, CA
It seems like academically, it will be extremely demanding.
Alfonso from Panorama City, CA
Very challenging, so be prepared to work 40 hours a week or more! You may have to pull all nighters, but once you're settled, you'll get used to the work load.
