From what I hear, it's definitely rigorous, but that's what I'm looking for.

You will be pushed. There are only five classes per semester, but each there are two different types. The first is liberal arts. These include your history and writing/reading courses. They meet two times a week, and last for an hour and fifteen minutes each.

The real work comes from the studio classes. These only meet once a week, but you are in the class room for the entire day. Usually starting at 9:30, you work until noon, then meet again at 2:00 and go until 4:30. A nice break, the homework is usually the activity of the night. On top of that, projects tend to be due around the same time in multiple classes, and the liberal arts can be before or after the studio classes, resulting in a long day. The trade off is worth it. You are allowed to work on anything you want, so long as the project meets the requirements. Professors are helpful, insightful, and many times, the assignments are enjoyable. Making a full length movie is a lot more fun than writing a 50 page paper for a final.

This school is very serious when it comes to the expected performance of their students. No fooling around at this school.
