This is the #1 school to attend if you want to be in the radio and film industry! The instructors are so knowledgeable and patient! They really care about their students succeeding in their dreams! Best school and instructors hands down!
Tlo is great
A recruiter from this school just called me because I had entered a radio station contest that provided my information to them. Him calling me was fine, but how he spoke to me was not. He asked if I was looking to go to school to pursue a career in entertainment. I told him I went to Columbia College Chicago 10 years ago and work in the music industry, so I’m not interested. He asked what I do and I said I work in ticketing and work live events (one is full time and one is freelance). He asked what venue I work at and since my freelance job has me working at various venues, but I’m not employed by one, I said I don’t work for a venue. Then he came out of nowhere and said “ticketing is not the music industry, you don’t work in the music industry, I work in the music industry so I would know”. While yes, ticketing could be classified as “live events” vs, “music”, he called asking if I was interested in a career in the entertainment industry, and I was just trying to communicate that I’m happily employed in the field so I don’t need the school’s services. Not to mention my freelance work is through a company that I guarantee anyone who teaches at this school would confirm is in fact a major player in the music industry. I didn’t feel comfortable telling him where I work so I told him I didn’t know why I was defending myself to him and hung up. I’m not sure why he was so aggressively trying to tell me I was wrong, especially after such a short exchange, but it left a bad taste in my mouth about this school.
Perfect school to learn anything about production. Very informative and helpful even for beginners.
We have had the pleasure of working with students from this prestigious program at various event. We were most impressed by the curious nature of its student body willing to learn and ask questions. The staff do an excellent job creating a safe learning environment.
The experience here is so wonderful. Especially the hands-on teaching, you may start as a beginner but you will leave the campus as a pro.
Teachers are cool and the school is amazing in general 100%
Top notch media school, great instructors, and great atmosphere to learn!
Illinois media school is stealing money from the students. Charging financial aid for books that they dont give the students but recycle them throughout the students with copies of pages. They need to be under a federal investigation to see how students funds are distributed
Amazing place to be, especially to start a career in the Media industry. They take it to the level of basic on the job training more than any other school. I highly recommend if you are interested to come take a tour of the O’Hare campus!
Love the comment they make to providing a educational and well round program. They gave me excellent instructions and stood by me step by step when it came to learning a new craft and bettering a few techniques I already had experience in.
This school is of the best for achieving your goals in broadcasting. Excellent instructor and awesome hands on learning
