  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I had the chance to meet myself as a high school senior, I would offer many words of advice about the college experience. The biggest and main piece of advice is that even though procrastinating in high school was acceptable and still yielded adequate results, once in college procrastinating brings high amounts of stress, lack of sleep, and poor quality in projects. The work and projects assigned from this school require a lot more time and effort than expected. These arent the type of assignments where writing whatever comes to mind at midnight the night before will still result in a B paper, these are projects where visual presentation weighs heavily on your grade and much thought has to be put into what you are doing. So no more procrastination in college, work hard and produce better projects than you could imagine.

  3. What's unique about your campus?

    I would have to say that the best thing about my school is that the class sizes are small so we can all get idividualized attention and that all the teachers for our design and art based classes are actual interior designers, architects and artists. They share their personal experiences in the field and we learn certain things that cannot be taught out of a text book.
