Great campus with passionate teachers and great school life. Although the food isn't the best, the classes are small and focused on what you want to do in your field. Most students are friendly although some are cocky. Housing is decent but they have a slight issue with ants getting into the dorm rooms. You won't find another school like it!
It was more Self-Design, from where my knowledge came from. Though, the professors are always more than willing to support/mentor projects because of the small class size. The reason as to why I give a low rating is because Laureate did not properly manage their resources, and are closing the school in a year. They gave 2 months notice to the entire school, and faculty/staff were fired left and right.
I am an older student returning to college after 23 years of professional life. My main reason for choosing this school was its relative low-class size and quality of facilities available to students. I am in the film program, and in the summer heading into my junior year, the Film School here hooked me up with a large, Hollywood movie production where I interned for 8 days and had the opportunity to work alongside such Hollywood A-List celebs as Tommy Lee Jones, Rene Russo, and Morgan Freeman. I was able to watch up close the writer-director of the film "Bull Durham" direct on set, and I came away with not just great professional experience but established professional contacts via Linked In with Hollywood Producers. The film program here at SFUAD has not let me down! I've still four more semesters to go before completion of my degree, and I am already on the short-list of students to get the opportunity to work on 'above the line' roles such as Editor, Producer, Writer, Director, on large budget film production the school sponsors every year, and participate in a personalized mentor program with an established feature film professional. I couldn't be more excited to see what NEXT year will bring!
This university is extremely diverse, the professors and students make this university a fun place to be. Creativity is encouraged and the staff push you past your comfort zone and limits to help you succeed. The campus is the perfect size for a small school, collaborations are encouraged with other majors which makes becoming successful one step easier.

When you take the tour talk to a student ambassadour or guidance counselor without your parents at least once. Ask them all the questions you wouldn't want to ask infront of your parents (what's the party scene like, do they have a gay straight alliance, etc etc). Sit in on a class, get an idea for class sizes, how available the teachers are, what kinds of clubs they have, and the resource centers they have for students. Is the library up to date, can you as a first year student rent out equipment in your department, are internships available, do they have study groups and tutours? Find out from students how easy the financial aid and registrar offices are to navigate. Once you're at college, even if you feel a bit out of place at first STICK WITH IT, if you give up rite away and transfer out chances are you're only going to run into the same problem when you get to your new school. Try new things, meet new people, take classes in things your interested in, join clubs, don't be afraid to see the on campus therapist if you need help adjusting.
It offers small classes and great resources for the fields of film and theatre.
This school is very artistic, has intersting people, but it feels more like high school.
Everyone is all about their art, or whatever they are working on. Students often colaborate with other students. We all have our specialities and we recognize that- When M.O.V. stoduents go to make a movie for class, they bring in sound people, makeup and costume poeple, lighting, photography, music- all students can get involved in projects on campus- if they want.
The worst thing about College of Santa Fe is the food- and that is not saying much because it is catered by an outside catering service. The food is obviously not grandma's dinner but it has quite a variety.
My classmates were extermely creative, intelligent, and an ethnically diverse group of people.
A very outgoing, friendly, positive bubbly person does the best in our school. Everyone is very, very friendly and goes out of thier way to make you feel at home. The town is great and has a tremendous amount of opportunities in the culture department. I felt right at home. I am from the south and my home town is known for its hospitality and friendliness. Being at the College of Santa Fe was very much like being in my home town.
Someone who is open to creativity and being an individual among friends is best suited for Santa Fe University of Art and Design (new name). They have to be the kind of person who enjoys the simplicty in life and wants to achieve goals in the art of their choice by being around those that understand them and want to see them do well. A person who wants to be a part of an actuall community, not a number, but a name and a face.

Last year when I came to the College of Santa Fe I wish I would have known the seriousness of the financial problems the school was experiencing. I think that would have changed many peoples' minds about attending CSF last year because now as a result of the school temporarily shutting down this summer, we have lost the majority of our student population this year. Only returning students were accepted this semester, leaving us with only 200 students as compared to last year's 750.
When I tell prople about my school I brag about how small the school is. The school is about 800 students! I love it because it allows for personal attention when needed by teacher to student. I brag about how amazing the school is they have so many different programs for you to choose from it almost makes you want to change your major just because you can. All of their technologies are up to date which allows for better learning. But mostly its nit big and crowded. It's a private college and its the perfect size.
There are too many smokers on campus and no enforcement of the 20 foot rule.
