I was really not used to the courses before but as time and experiences you can excel the course, and it becomes very interactive when you start finding facts yourself, due to the internet access.
The exams and the interactive session are the creative thing i liked

Well Not all teachers and faculty members are up to mark but yes i can assure you with one thing, our faculty are very interactive and very helpful. The teachers wont be interested in you until you show some interest in it.
But if you ask them anything they will be very pleased to help you in all senses.
Our college is a little bit of a miser in giving us marks in total , so our average grades go down.

I am in architecture college, and the experience is been very good so far,
The daily dead lines are very hectic but, as usual we learn a lot from the classes. We have many trips which are mainly educational and fun at the same time.
The workload is preferably is intense and overwhelming . The faculty are just very interacting and yes i would miss my college.

My school offers rides from one building to another if moving between building late at night. Very convenient and helpful.

The computer network is always having problems. There's not a day that goes by where a professor doesn't excuse something being turned in late because of the network. While getting a pass like that is helpful, it's also pretty frustrating, not knowing whether your work will get there on time or not.

The facilities on campus aren't bad. There's no gym and recently renovated auditorium for theatre performances and other events. Even though it's not a campus students live on, it's definitely a comfortable campus to hang out at between classes, or catching up on some reading at the library.

Great Printing – Our school has free printing which makes homework and projects less stressful. We also have multiple computer labs that are available at all hours.

This school is small and the instructors are mainly working professionals which makes the educational experience better since they are in the industry.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The staff in the financial aid office is helpful but it is difficult to receive financial aid.

Old Buildings – The school has decided to take over old buildings rather than build new buildings. Since we are in downtown San Diego, most of the buildings are old. It would be nice if we had newer facilities.

Anytime, you can stop by and get help. They really work with your goal in mind, whether its just a summer job, or preapring to graduate and enter the field of architecture. There is a lot more needed for an architect to get a job than a resume, a portfolio is key. They have helped keep my portfolio up to date making it easier down the road when I graduate.

Classes Are Required – As an architecture student, your goal is to become a liscensed architect. You have to finish certain courses to be recognized as an architect. Be careful of electives that take you off your goal, but be on the lookout for interesting courses that make you build, create, anything that can be build physically.

Lack of Innovation – As a design school, this school lacks the innovation our field demands. Being private, for profit, this is a sense of not investing in the students but more of a business. As long as you have a check that clears, it seems the standards get lower. We should be striving for the best, yet my class has dropped about 40% from the first year. Instead of creating more space for creativity (wood, metal workshop) that is too small, more offices and more "directors" are needed.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
Don't Wait – The education I'm getting is well worth the money I'm paying. I got a little bit of financial aid, which helps, but I'm fine with the expense because I know my degree will make a difference in my career. I learned the hard way that it's very important to get all the right financial aid forms in on time-so don't make that same mistake! The only thing I wish the school would do differently is make its fees better known.

Great Classes – The main reason I chose this school was because of how flexible the class schedules are. I am able to work around my personal schedule, which is great.

For profit school with little concern for student success – First, NewSchool is a for profit architectural university. Meaning nearly everyone is accepted to the school despite their poor performance previously and honestly the fact that they should pursue another profession. This school is devaluing the architecture profession and especially the Bachelor of Architecture degree.
I recommend applying to either Cal Poly, UC Berkeley, or UCLA if you want quality education for a fair price. If price isn't an issue, Woodbury in San Diego or LA, CCA, or out of state are much better as evidenced by their faculty and student work. Remember, you are paying more in tuition then you would to go to Harvard, so don't make the decision in haste. Demand better!
3 of 5 of the thesis professors here have no more than 2 years of experience and only 2 of the 5th year thesis professors are licensed. Good Luck!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
