The best part of coming to Platt College was graduating in 15 months with an Associates degree. I also really liked the students I attended school with; they came from all walks of life. They really inspired me with what they were doing and wanted to accomplish in their lives. I appreciated the diversity in the classroom because it offered me insight into the workplace and the real world.
I greatly enjoyed Platt College, I was able to really express my creative side and make my ideas into reality. Platt College has an excellent staff that will nurture your imagination and help you achieve your goals.
I would definitely recommend Platt!
I currently work for one of the largest companies in the world, Viacom. I continue to excel and climb the corporate ladder because of the ideals I learned from Platt. Such ideals as drive, imagination, thinking outside of the box, and passion. These help me to succeed and impress my peers with my leadership skills as a board member.
Overall, Platt College has been a wonderful experience for me. The career services team has been very supportive in helping me find job opportunities. Without their help I feel I would have had a much more difficult time making connections and finding a job within graphic design. I appreciate all the connections and opportunities. Thank you, Platt.
After graduating with a degree in Visual Communications, Paul took a job with Seven Studios. Last year, he moved to San Francisco to take a job with Electronic Arts as a character modeler and texture artist for My SIMS 3 for Nintendo Wii, due to release in early 2009.
Here’s what Paul has to say about his experience at Platt:
DECIDING TO GO to Platt College basically changed my life for the better. I’ve met some of the most talented students and instructors. I can honestly say that I enjoyed every class I had. Although at times it seem like the pace is very fast, but I knew going in that the way it is. But I stuck to it and did my best and Platt helped me achieve my long time goal, to get a degree.
THE MULTIMEDIA AND 3D course at Platt is great. Knowing 3D was essential to me getting into the game industry or movie industry. Learning how to model, UV map and texture 3D models correctly and efficiently comes into play in the daily courses.
I WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND Platt COllege to anyone who is serious about taking charge of their life and finding a great career. Platt college is fast, efficient, and affordable. Time and money is a small price to pay for not only a great job, but a great career. Instructor and staff are very professional. Career placements is also very well organized. Platt college found me 2 jobs, one while I was attending, and the other after I graduated. I’ve been in the game industry for about 3 years now and loving it, thanks to Platt College.
What I liked best about attending Platt was the small class sizes. The instructors are able to give each student the attention needed to succeed. Every instructor I had at Platt was helpful and very understanding about the demands put on students in accelerated classes. I enjoyed attending Platt.
I graduated from Platt College in 2003. It was wonderful time. I studied at Platt for 6 months as I already had my BA degree in Fashion Design and strong illustration skills. What was most important for me there is the fact that every instructor tried to accommodate my needs. I did a lot of different extra projects and I put a nice portfolio together. Teachers were very flexible and enthusiastic about that. Platt helped me to get my first job where I have worked for 6 years.
My experience at Platt College as a Paralegal student was memorable. I received my Associates and Bachelor degree here. The professors in the Paralegal program are very knowledgeable and work in the same field. Real stories and experiences from the professors were great to hear. I learned a lot in this program and appreciate the knowledge they gave me to succeed in my future career. I would recommend Platt College to anyone interested in this degree.
