Art Center College of Design Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish I knew the financial aspect of it and the difficulty one can face when they don't have enough funds. I also wish I went straight to this school after high school, instead of investing my time in another degree, but I know I wouldn't be where I am today if I hadn't, so I have no regrets, only financial issues.


I was accepted to this school because I was fully prepared for the rigorous curriculum and professional atmosphere Art Center provides. I however would liked to have known ahead of time exactly the exact cost of materials for each class, and what materials I would need in order to purchase them ahead of time at a less expensive price.
