“My name is Javin Griffin. I am a Film major here at Living Arts College. I am currently in my fourth quarter at the school and I am really loving it. A lot of the classes, especially the ones pertaining to my major are very hands on and a ton of fun. The courses here are challenging, but still allow students to be creative in the product we produce. The staff and faculty at the college are awesome and helpful with not only class assignments, but also with personal work, extracurricular activities, and even networking. Living Arts College is an amazing school.“
"The staff I met during my first tour of the school were very helpful and informative. I really liked the atmosphere and environment the school had. I like the location of the school. It has multiple places to go to within walking distance or a short drive. Within my first year here, I had gotten a second job as an event videographer with a company here in town. All thanks to the people I've been able to network with here at the school."
