Hey guys, im doing a project for school and need a bit of help.
I need to know from anyone in a design or art university or college from anywhere in the world:
Do you feel that your school has any sort of school spirit and why?
so i guess i can start:
School: OCAD (toronto, canada)
School spirit?: None at all
Why?: because there are alota students, nobody gets to know one another very well. also the school has no residence for out of town students so most students come to school for class and leave right after. no sports teams, few clubs, the school makes tshirts etc but the "non conformist" views of the students prevent them from wearing it (thats some think anyway lol).
thats it, appreciate any help, thanks in advance
School: The Open Window School of Visual Communication:
School Spirit: Heaps and tons.
Why: It's a fairly selective "academy." Generally the first year drop rate is way over 50% (normally - bout 100 out of 250 survive or that kinda ratio). This means by your second year - where I am now - only the most passionate and energetic are still around. Other than that, it's fairly small and the whole place is full of student work. It's also pretty informal - you can call lecturers on their first names, crack jokes and even catch a smoke with them. This type of environment makes a huge difference and that's why it's recommended above the uni's here.
Sure ill join in.
College: Stratford Upon-Avon-College.
College spirit?: Rubbish.
Why?: At first it was great, but the projects are lacking oomph now and are starting to get really dull. The teachers are good but they lack motivation and the energy to boost students further. Each day is the same boring one with nothing spectacular going on. The only motivation is self.
School: Rhode Island School of Design
school Spirit: pfft! School spirit is for social clubs.
I think you are awesome, and I wish you the best in your endeavors, but I am tired of repeating myself, I am very busy with my new baby, and I am no longer a regular participant here, so please do not contact me to ask for advice on your career or education. All of the advice that I have to offer can already be found in the following links. Thank you.

And high schools.Originally Posted by Seedling
The high school I work at has lots of spirit. The colors are red and black, I get alot of art with school colors.
Unfortunately, the Bloods also use red and black so you've got to be sure your getting school spirit and not gang colors.
