It is a private Christian college, but they are pretty lenient on different things as long as you are not breaking the law.

Health & Safety:
I feel very safe at the "campus". Some may feel unsure about the homeless in Memphis, but you learn to deal with them.

The school is within a three minute walk from the dorms, students help each other getting around to places like Walmart and Target. VMC is in the heart of downtown so there are a lot of things to do without needing transportation. If needed the trolley is readily available as long as the bus which cost no more than 3 dollars for the entire day. Train tickets are very reasonably priced, located downtown and the airport is not to far either.

The audio/music production program is one of the best. In my previous school I didn't get much out of it but Visible Music College has gone far any beyond. The professors genuinely car for their students and take the needed time to help them grow and succeed in their field.

Audition Only Admission – Getting into this school is based on auditions. No problem choosing your major if you get in.

Vocal Major – Being a Vocal Major sometimes seems lie it is not challenging enough simply because its harder to see progress in your own skill because it takes long to develop a habit and you can't practice as long. The workload is a lot sometimes but coming from a different college it is the about the same. I love doing and learning about what I love but it scares me that I may not be able to find a job after school is over. However, this school is great for getting you into networking, and throws you into the business.

Where to Eat in Memphis – There is no 'cafeteria' and students are responsible for their own food. There are many restaurants surrounding the down town campus. My favorite is Huey's! However, I don't go out much. Just shop at the grocery store and cook in our full kitchens! Kroger, Walmart, Target, and the Wonder Bread store are the best places to buy groceries for cheap. With car situations everyone helps everyone else. Sweet Potato Fries are AWESOME! So is the BBQ!

Visible is a unique diverse college of students and faculty from all walks of life. We are a tightly knit community of Christians reaching for the same goal of Making Jesus famous. While there are academic classes such as math and science which hold a great importance the faculty encourage and challenge the students to grow in their particular area as far as their musical talent as well as their walk with Christ. The teachers here are extremely talented and have a lot to teach. Registration process is very swift and easy due to the awesome office faculty, financial aid still has a few kinks to get out but is getting better. The courses, especially music theory, is extremely challenging but they offer free tutoring and because we are closely knit there is so many opportunities to speak to your professors. We hold each other accountable and there is pastoral care. Dorm life is amazing, there is always something to do. Overall, its just a great school to go to challenging but the amazing community helps get each other along with out competition which is rare in an artist centered school. That's what happens when God is present.

Available Housing – Visible School partners with an apartment complex right across the street from the new building in downtown Memphis. The apartments are about the same price as the dorms (which are brand new condominium apartments built two years ago) if split amongst four people. In my opinion, nothing beats on-campus housing as far as aesthetics goes, but the overflow apartments are cozy enough. Other than that, downtown living can get pricey. Midtown is about a 10 minute drive, and has plenty of affordable housing options, but it's important to know where to look. Neighborhoods in Memphis change completely from one street to the next. Luckily, as a first year on-campus (or the off-campus overflows I was just talking about) housing is required, so by the second year here a student should no where the hotspots in town are.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
