NCSA is a great college. There is diversity among the students, with frequent interactions between students of different artistic disciplines. At NCSA you learn the simple, harsh truth about the world of art- you will not get anywhere without working hard. At NCSA you it is not uncommon for a student to work 12 hour days, 7 days a week, no matter what their discipline it. The film school at NCSA is the best department, however. It has state-of-the-art technology and three massive sound stages for students to film their projects. The only bad thing about NCSA is its location- Winston-Salem, NC is a poor, deadbeat town, but the campus truly is a gem in the south.
