Iron Rod.. you should use proper grammar or people may discredit your review because you'll end up sounding like a bitter ex student who didn't make the cut... It's critique not critic... OCAD has high points and low points.. The administration has some level of incompetence (paying 50k a year to remover 'graffiti' IN AN ART SCHOOL).. but they are also pretty progressive and attentive when it comes to outreach after finishing your thesis (My one major complaint is the lack of industry team-ups and internships.. They should be mandatory not left up to the teachers). Some teachers are amazing.. some are a little lackluster.. like any institution. Coming from the design program (ID) I found OCAD's 'academic brand focus' was more on the theoretical and user-based research design as opposed to hard engineering skills. If you take ID, make sure to learn SolidWorks!! They teach you to how to be big picture thinkers more than engineering skills (which you need to pick up if you're doing product design). As long as you can tolerate the odd egotistical hipster here and there you'll have a great time!

It's really a good university. The location is incredible. I' currently attendimng OCAD's 'prestigious' Art and Design program.Great school. Cost benefit ratio is low. I had personal problem and went to talk to the Art an Design program director, he was soooo supportive. This place is my second family.

Pretentious university focused on milking rich teens parents and design over fine art

Best place in Ontario to study design, fine arts, and in particular digital media.

Took a continuing ed course here. The teacher was great, the lessons were great but we always had to spend time at the beginning cleaning up so we could actually use the room. For what I spent on the class I kinda expected to just be able to come in, take the class, and leave.

The towers were high so they imagined that a plane could possibly hit the tower and made the tower to be super solid, not imagine a terrorist attack. Plus, tower 7 hosted classified communcation documents from CIA and FBI. No steel-framed structure ever collapsed by fire itself. Never happened: some tall towers in Spain already burnt and still didn't collapse (oops). Funny how they didn't mention its collapse too. And they found thermite on the ground of WTC Twin Towers and Tower 7. Look up "wtc beams cut" and you'll see some perfect, angled cuts in solid steel beams. And the fire in the tower is so small... it's ridiculous to think it collapsed by fire. You can also see videos on youtube of people calling just before they die, like this video, and many people claimed to have heard/seen explosives. Know something about chemistry and physics? Thermite is composed of powdered aluminium and powdered iron oxyde (III). Mixed together and ignited, this exothermic reaction creates A LOT of energy, mostly heat and light, and can cut through steel like butter, hence the perfect angled cuts. Since the products of this reaction are Al2O3(s) + 2Fe(l) (liquid because of the high temperature), it's really easy to trace it back to the original source: thermite. Once the reaction is started, it lets the oxygen to bond with aluminium, leaving the iron alone and liberating all this heat due to the REALLY strong links between Fe and O being broken (electrical charges of 3 and 2 are really high). This is a cheap, and fast way to make thing fall to the ground. This is why I doubt that it could have fallen by itself due to fire. Do some research, look at all the things you can about 9/11, including what stands against your point and what supports it. Look at it from all the possible angles. I once believed it was an attack. I was young when it happened and didn't know what was going on. But then I started hearing about a possible demolition etc. but still didn't hear about tower 7. But you know what? I would stick to the gov's version.. Then after seeing more and more about it, I started think "what does the gov have against the discovery of thermite on the ground, about tower 7 collapsing by itself. And why would they even do this". But then you take a look at what it created: mass control. They installed a "threat" and made people believe in this threat. but seriously, have you ever been in real danger since? No. They are the real threat. The governments aren't you friends. Look at Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin, Bush, Mao Zedong, Idi Amin, Putin, name it. Did they treat their people good? No. So, please, tell why it would be more probable to be a legit terrorist attack instead of a pretext to enter a "war"?

Beautiful building. Tour buses constantly come by to gawk at it. It's unfortunate (for them, not us) that they don't come inside though- the insides are full of hidden gems. The stairwells are filled with different types of graffiti and media, and there are art installations on multiple floors at times. Bathrooms are always dirty though, but otherwise great place to study fine arts.

Not really into spending thousands a semester for such a mediocre curriculum, careless professors and a president who won't even make eye contact with the students who make this whole education business a thing. Even worse is Health & Wellness Centre, which is bound to result in making you sicker (of living such a poor academic life). This place was unfortunately not more than a major waste of time and money for me, and a "learning experience" that you don't need institutionalized education to develop your own skills, portfolio, projects and ambitions. F*ck OCAD.
