Life at Risd mainly revolves around the friends you make during your freshman year, or the friends you make in your classes. It is really up to you whether or not you really want to experience an average college life- going to parties, etc or working on upcoming assignments. Risd life is very busy throughout all the years but it is really up to you if you want to party or work on your studio assignments. Most of the Professors are very insightful and some are not. You necessarily don't get to choose your studio professors but liberal arts professors you get to decide.
Communications majors deal a lot with web design.
If you want to focus on web design at RISD the graphic design major would best suit you. However, there are several majors that allow room for taking classes within the graphic design department and you can take specific web design courses.

Many students love and hate RISD at the same time. The workload may be extremely demanding, but RISD students are not coming to receive the typical college experience. They are coming to get in touch with a community of artists that will enrich their understanding of art as a medium. RISD students come to gain access to an amazing amount of resources and equipment, which enable them to push their art form as much as possible. They aren’t looking for the big party school or a Greek scene—they are coming here to find themselves, to be individuals, and excel in their individual talents.
RISD students work very hard and are rewarded in the end. Many feel they are prepared to enter some sort of job or pursue a way to become active professionals in their field. In many ways, RISD is like boot camp for art, but it’s also an amazing opportunity for students to make the work that they want, while learning about themselves and their surroundings in the process. Once students let go of any ideas of what college is supposed to be, they will realize that RISD is not only a completely unique and exhilarating experience, but also provides a degree that holds a lot of weight in the professional world and skills that will serve students for their entire lives. Ask any RISD student, and they will say that as much as they complain, they would never go anywhere else.
