What is kind of reputation does this school have academically? I know that they are unaccredited, but they seem to have a really strong program in my area of interest, which is traditional painting and drawing. I found out about them online, while looking for christian colleges in the southeast that have art and visual communication programs. I was impressed with what I read about them on their website, but then I saw a number of complaints about their rules and lack of accreditation. I also noticed that students are required to live on campus unless they are over a certain age(I think 25 or so).
The main thing I am wondering is what kind of rules I would have to deal with if I did decide to go there. Also, I want to know more about what I could expect the campus living and academic situation to be like. Is it true that the internet connections there are highly monitored to the point that students have little privacy? Also, are students over 22 allowed to have PDAs, boyfriends, girlfriends, or whatever on campus?
Moderate rules do not bother me. However, I want to be sure that I fully understand what to expect in the way of rules and campus life before I actually send in my application. Thanks in advance for any answers!
