Is a private school the tuition is so expensive and the stuff kind of ok is not very good. The school food is so expensive also the art supply store also expensive. Has a lot of works the student don't even have weekend actually it can not call as a weekend. Everyday is working day at school. I don't know why the professor wants to lock student at school everyday. Because have a lot of work even your class is over you still need to stay at school.

Calvin - 06/12/2018

The Southern California Institute of Architecture is a place where mad scientists from around the world battle using nothing but architecture. From the first moment the class started, I felt like I was on a bullet train to the next deadline. The professors would assign projects that would've taken one full semester at my previous school. They push you aggressively beyond your boundaries which allows you to grow at a ridiculous rate. Most people can't take it and find themselves dropping out of school. Beyond that, the school has a very tight niche community with so many phenomenal students and faculty. I'm proud of the person that SCI-Arc has made me into and I wouldn't want to go anywhere else.
