"You can get as much out of the program as you want. When I got out and started working, I found that they taught all the skills you would actually use instead of just theory. I talked to people who have gone through other design schools and I found out that they don't really get the real world skills that are needed. You get a good base of technical skills at Colorado Mountain College. This is definitely a great place to go to school."
