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

There is no exact science to figuring out which college suits one potential student best. It is the student's attitude, drive, and personality that makes their situation the best it can be. Of course, it does help to attend a respected and accomodating college that drives a student in his/her chosen carreer path, but a student must be reliant on his/her own determination to attain the knowledge, experience, and memories that stay with him/her throughout his/her life. Positivity and determination are definitely key to a successful college life that not only includes a good education, but a good batch of fun memories and friends to leave with. New students should know that fear is common, but that should not prohibit them from opening up to new people, ideas, outlooks. Never compare yourself with another person, every student is unique from the way they study to the way they take an exam and handle pressure. Most importantly, let your passions drive you, mistakes are ok because you would never learn a thing without them, but passion is key to attaining your own personal success and happiness.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I wouldn't say "brag", but I would say the one thing I talk about most to my friends in regards to my schooling is how intense the workload is, but also how much I am enjoying the experience. The pressure and the excitement go hand in hand. The reason why I am so proud to be at Otis is because it's hard. Greatness does not come easily.

Research about the college and make sure the college or university they want to attend provides every needs they are looking for. Also visit the campus, take a tour and talk to the students that are attending that college or univesity about the school. Another thing that is important, is to visit different colleges and pick the one that is the best for them.

You must first know what you want and where you can get it and do the best you can to work for it! Go for it, you can do it!

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There is too many girls and too less guys, but then again, our school is famous for its fashion design degree. I also wish there is more clubs or activities in this school.

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

Before you choose a college try and be as sure as you can about your career choice. Then take that choice and do as much research as you can on as many colleges as you can. Also try to visit the campus you want to go to at various times and get opinions about the school from students that are there. A college campus should not be a larger version of your High School but a pre-profesional environment that allows for career and personal growth with only positive intent. Learn, grow, have fun, and enjoy every second because it passes way too fast.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

cost....too expensive for the education provided

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

This school is not big and on the top of the art college. But, I'm sure that the school is becomming the best art college among the industry . As I said, it's a small school so students get along really easily. Here at Otis College it's really easy to make friends!!! Professors are always prepare for their classes. Too much works might scare you. However, it is part of a valuable experience. Unlike, other art school, Otis required many liberal classes like senior english. It is really hard to acheive good grade from both art class and liberal classes at the one time but it worth. Most of my friends in the school, even if their most wanted school was not an Otis, satisfied with their final desicion, attending Otis and so do i.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I think everyone can attend this school.
