I have a positive overall opinion about the college. It offers the necessary knowledge that I believe is needed in the near future as far as job placement goes. They do not have that many off school experiences offered but what they lack with that, they compensate with stories and examples of real life situations in my career.
I absolutely love Virginia Marti College of Art and Design. They are a small school, so there is a lot of individual attention from the professors. Everyone at the college has shown me a genuine interest in helping me succeed in every aspect of my life which I have not experienced at my previous college. The programs are geared to helping you find a job right out of school and their job placement is extremely high. The focus of the school is in the arts, so it is nice to find a group of people that all share your same interests. I have learned a good amount about the industry by just talking to the other students about their classes and current projects. Overall the environment is warm, welcoming and inspires you to put your best foot forward!
