Well, it's almost may, and a whole new generation of high-school students like myself are about to graduate, and are starting to make final decisions about where we're going to college, and I think that all of us could do with some friendly advice.
So those art-college types out there, please post any glimmers of wisdom you've had, or wish you had had when you first started school. Any general tips for dealing with college life, dealing with money, time management, any observations about being an artist within the system of higher education would be helpful. Help keep your younger peers from making the same mistakes you did!
All I ask is that you end your replies with which college you attended, for reference, or failing that, at least put the country where you went to school.
