    Where did you go to college?

    Don't know if there has been a thread on this, but I am a college student hoping to transfer to major in mass communications/media studies or film.

    Where did you guys go to college, what did you like about it? Hate?

    If you want to get into film, you should give serious consideration to USC:

    Re: Where did you go to college?

    Well, if USC gets a plug, then I'm gonna put my two cents in:

    USC is a great school if you're planning on being a filmmaker. Stanford's great for mass media and communication studies, and there's no more beautiful place to go to college...

    Re: Where did you go to college?

    I know that USC has always had an excellent film program, and a respected school of journalism and broadscating. Longtime KNX news and business reporter Frank Mottek is a former colleague of mine, and I know he teaches classes there. He is a class act, and I imagine he'd be a fine instructor.

    As for me? I went to Cypress College and transferred to Cal State Fullerton (which has always had a respected film program and now has a better broadcasting program than they had when I was there).

    Cal State Hayward. I was going to go to San Diego State, but my grandmother came down with cancer, so I opted to stay close to home to help take care of her.

    The University of Arizona (in Tucson)

    I happened to be a film major there.

    Boo! UC Berkeley! Actually, for film, you are better off going elsewhere.

    Okay...so we don't have a football team and our team out in the big blue pyramid hasn't danced anywhere since the early 90's.

    But we've still got Steven!

    And THE CARPENTERS!

    USC

    Hard cinema school to get into. I didn't manage it, but I took a couple film courses. Problem is, nobody really knows what it takes to get accepted... including USC's own "counselors" for undeclared majors. They'll try and talk you into the "film studies" program, but that's a load of you-know-what.

    **

    My advice to you and ALL college students: Whatever else you do, whatever dreams you are chasing, whatever other major you want to have, be it English or History, or Underwater Umbrella Opening, do yourself a favor and GET A MAJOR OR MINOR IN BUSINESS. Yeah, there may be "plenty" of opportunities in your field, but you have a 90% chance of working in something other than the field of your major. Give yourself a chance by adding business to whatever your specialty is.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...
