Hi! I'm deciding between Cal Poly Pomona or CSULB for visual arts. I'm interested in drawing. painting, and graphic design. Could anyone help me out? Do you suggest a different college? Which has the best art program, art teachers and art community?? Thank you!

    Long Beach hands down! It's ranked pretty well (#69) for fine arts. I personally know somebody who is studying fine arts over there and they love it! I'm sure Cal Poly also has a good art program, but it isn't the strongest.

    Not sure about your stats, but here are some other great art schools with the best faculty:
    - UCLA
    - UC Davis
    - Arizona State U
    - Yale
    - CalArts
    - UCSD
    - Stanford

    Generally, you should apply a couple of schools but, I can't recommend any without knowing more about you . What are your qualifications and budget?
