Anne Kellet is the adminstrator who runs the internship program here and is a great resource for finding jobs after graduation. Not only is she well known throughout the community but so are our other instructors. Having small classes they get to know you personally and give you great recommendations when you are looking for a job, this industry is all about knowing people and they give you plenty of opportunties to network!

Our school offers a materials library, most everything is discontinued fabric, but we do have an active kravet library. Our library is small, but is the best resource we have because the Library Lisa is amazing and can find you anything you need, and if we don't have it she can go get it! Other than that, we have no sports, student center or many campus activities. With our cirriculium there isn't much time to use other resources anyways.

For a private school I feel like our network connections could be better. Not all the buidlings recieve wifi connections which can be frustrating. They also recently updated the school email and let everyone know how to access their account, through an email, genius. The best thing is that we get all our of design programs for free here Photoshop CS6, AutoCad2013, Indesign, Revit and Illustrator. Other than that the connection is terrible, constantly freezing and crashing. Could use improvement.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The education I am recieving is definitely worth the money, the class sizes are small so you get a lot of individualized attention. They are well known and can really help you find a job after graduation. However, the communication between faculty and students is poor when it comes to the main office. Best advice, ask for a copy of any changes that happen in your file so you can have your own record. Also, when it comes to student events, be proactive and ask questions to faculty and teachers about ways you can get involved. They post some events but there is definitely more out there, you have to put yourself out there!

Academic Effectiveness – The program is structured for one thing; success. This school thrives on the success of their students and our dedication as students to the design industry does not fail the status quo that this school tries to keep. I am very proud to call the Design Institute of San Diego my college because I know that they have prepared me for success.

Staff Is Willing to Help! When i first applied to my school one of the major topics covered was about job placement. They offer plenty of information and assistance, as well as keeping their info up to date with the surrounding job market. Am I hopeful about the current market? No, but I am confident that the admins at my school will listen to my needs and aspirations when it comes time to looking for a job in my field.

Professors are always involved in your work and provide critiques. You also learn to critique other pieces of work in a responsible and consideratte environment. They are always available, considerate, and helpful.

Classes Are Fun. Classes are fun but require some definite time management. You start off with the basics and build on it so your always expanding your range of skills. Professors are top-notch and super credible.

Awesome School. Overall this school is great. It is CIDA accredited and the professors are working professionals with ample experience in the field. The curriculum is intense but teaches you everything you need to know for your future career. Since it exclusively offers a BFA in interior design, it easy for students to make friends and quickly become your biggest supporters. They heavily concentrate on LEED, sustainable design, and green practices which is great.

Fun Projects – The instructors are always finding new ways to make our learning experience unique. They come up with new and exciting hands-on projects to keep up interested and make sure that each project can be applied to our career as well as everyday life. They also have a rotating "gallery" displaying the most recent projects and it really encourages me to do my best so that my project can be displayed! Only downfall may be that things aren't always explained well but it allows us to be more creative.

Staff That Cares – I love my school! The education has been great but what I appreciate the most is how thoughtful and caring the staff is. The financial advisor always keeps me updated on where my money is going and how its been dispersed each semester as well as works hard to make sure I receive the best rates. My dad recently passed away and the past two semester I have withdrawn from my classes because it was all too soon but the school director has been more than understanding and very supportive. Even while not attending classes for the last few months the staff would call and check up on how I was doing. I enrolled in summer classes today and it was so great to be around people that support my decisions and are excited to see me succeed.

If Your Professor Is Reasonable Then Your Class Becomes Reasonable. Online courses have differed especially in the professor/student relationship and the peep-to-peer interaction. When it's traditional the professor can not only tell you but show you what they mean, and the interaction with peers becomes much friendlier. With online courses you do focus on the task at hand but it can be a little disconnecting. But as long as my teacher is good at communicating (so that even if it's a hard project it is understandable) and doesn't create group projects for an online class (that never seems to work out well) then I've been pretty happy.

Ask Ahead of Time – The education is definitely worth what I'm paying - especially considering it is cheaper than most design schools. You've got to ask ahead of time for help with financial aid just in case you mess up a form and have to have it redone - they'll try their best to inform you as soon as possible so that you can do that if it occurs. As long as you are persistent in keeping up with the financial aid information then it works out very well.

My experience has been great. I asked administration what would transfer over and why and it got done. They've understood when life gets in the way so I've tried my best not to let it. As long as I talk to them I get what I need done.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
