Wow, that's what it's like at a university?
Right now, I'm going to a community college working toward my Associates Degree (majoring in illustration/graphic design). The tuition's cheap, and I actually have money left over from my financial aid!
My art classes are the best, and my other classes (math, history, english, that kind of stuff) are fine, too. It shocked me when I saw my painting teacher actually paint! Usually, the teacher scribbles something on the board and then sits down at their desk and reads the newspaper. But my art teacher is an actual ARTIST! I dunno, I just like having teachers that don't shoot the ol' bs...
Great job with this flash!
