William Paterson is a great environment; everyone is super helpful. When I first started here, I took a leap of faith: I had never taken an art class, ever. The professors really took the time to explain things to me and help me develop myself. More experienced students in class would check on me every day, see how my work was coming, and make suggestions. My skills have come a long way, and I’m looking forward to an internship in animation.
