Student at This School - Grad Year 2012

Overall Rating

I took 6 classes here last semester and I was blown away by this community college. First of all, the film department is excellent. They have some equipment in the more advanced classes that even some super-high priced specialty schools around here don't boast of having. The teachers are extremely knowledgeable and patient, and the quality of work being produced by the more advanced classes is pretty mind-boggling. Quite a few names in the film industry have gotten their start here, on the cheap!!
