    CCAD vs RSAD: Graphic Design Program

    Was just wondering how Ringling's Graphic Design Major compares to CCAD's?

    Maybe you guys who are attending Ringling and CCAD could fill me in....Ive been accepted to both and Im having trouble deciding....

    What makes the graphics program at each of the schools different, better, worse?

    I appreciate it,
    Rob

    I came to CCAD with the intention to pursue a career in graphic design. Kids that graduated from my high school left CCAD and got jobs. I can't compare CCAD's program to Ringling's, but I can tell you that there are handful of very good and dedicated teachers here (that teach graphic design and advertising courses); however, the student body has brought standards down, in terms of quality of work. The best program right now at our school is probably the ID program.

    hrm....I initialy put in an application to MIAD kind of as a backup if i didnt get into ccad or ringling....but It seems as though MIAD has granted me a 2/3 tution scholarship... 61 thousand dollars.

    I dont know what to do....cost wise MIAD is looking like a slick deal.

    I got the same scholarship for MIAD. I was gonna go but at the last minute decided on CCAD (decided really late and was a month and a half late for the scholarship deadline) CCAD gave me less money than MIAD and I still chose CCAD cuz MIAD IS A PIECE OF SHITHOLE. The school, the focus, and the dorms. The dorm rooms are half the size of CCAD dorms and there are no windows. *shakes head violently*

    I HATE MIAD!

    If I was friends with any graphic designers, I might be able to tell you about that department here at ringling. I do know that earlier this semester one of the teachers went on "medical leave"...for smoking some kind of drug and going to either jail or a mental institution...can't remember which. Bu..other than that. I enjoy some of the stuff that they put out. Some. It's very bright and colorful. And from what I'm gettig is the gic majors as they are called are mostly locally hired.

    I do want to chime in on the let's burn MIAD. It's absolutley killed peoples souls with drugs, alcohol, and sex. And that's all you ever hear the students talk about.

    Please find attached one heart, human, removed from my own chest at great personal hardship. It's for you.

    I am not in Graphic Design at RSAD either (and I doubt you will find many students from the program on conceptart.org) but can chime in with a little info.

    the top 3 students in adobe's design achievement contest came from ringling graphic design last year.

    http://www.adobe.com/education/adaa/winners/main.html

    and I know there is a girl who just got an intership with Apple and Itunes for the summer.

    They are creating some cool stuff. I can't say how the program and teachers are but the students do well. If I have time later I will put up some links to some recent Graphic design graduates from here.
