Do not go to this school. This school sucks! Most of the teacher there dont know what they are doing, you dont learn s**t, and you pay close to $90k and dont learn anything. First they rip you off with the tuition. When you go to visit the school everyone is so friendly, they tell you how wonderful it is how they are going to help you get jobs when you graduate and all that good stuff. When you start school your tuition is around $300 per 4 hr class, The second year that goes up to $370, The third year its $450. And of course they dont tell you that before you register or take loans. The people who work in the financial department are even more retarded than the teachers. They dont explain you anything, and every Semester your tuition suddenly goes up! These people are rip offs. Most of the teachers got no clue WTF they are doing. All class long we didnt do s**t let alone learn anything. All the teacher did tell stories about when he used to work with design companies. They claim their teacher are real world professionals yet they dont teach anything. I had a class in Solidworks even the teacher who taught it didnt know how to use the program so how do you expect him to teach us. All I learned in that class Is how to import files from rhino and use the fillet and shell command! WTF 3 months all semester long thats all we learned. If you want to leave in the dorms forget about it. Constantly Constantly people would complain how bad it was and how the school didnt do anything about it. Less than a year ago they almost poisoned their students who lived the dorms with carbon monoxide. One of the dorm buildings was so bad carbon monoxide was leaking from the basement and filling the whole building. A student had c02 sensor and called the cops when it went off. A couple of people got hospitalized the city shut down the building! Thats how much they care about their students. You pay $90K and you cant even print in f***ing color! or you can use the printer lab which charges students $4 per square inch! Let alone how much the book store tries to rip off the students! Community college of Philadelphia was 100% better than this school. At least there you actually learned something! As a former Student Do not go to this school I guarantee you will regret it! University of Arts its even worse than this! If you are into arts find another school!
