E Campus of Adelphi University.
Drawing for over 10 years, I eagle to study to upgrade myself and broaden the horizons of my artistic world.
For these reasons, I have been considering going to graduate school since the beginning of this year. But deciding which subjects to take and which courses to take was a big concern for me. It's the reason that I'm not going out of art school as self-taught artist and doing activities. In the early days, for example, in the first five years, I was often asked whether or not I graduated from art school. However, almost 10 years have passed since then, and only a few people ask me about that.
Conversely, this means that it is no longer important whether or not I have graduated from art school as I have been doing art exhibitions and painting continuously for over 10 years without breaking my careers. Rather, it is more important whether the work has been upgraded by that much, whether there is a specific pattern that I can tell immediately by looking at the picture, whether the world as an artist is becoming more and more solid, and whether there is a certain charm to appeal to the public.
In this regard, I decided to go straight to graduate school instead of starting as an undergraduate of art school. And I applied to each of the two graduate schools. The unnamed graduate school was disappointing in many ways. There was no response as to whether or not I received the portfolio sent for admission, and when I asked a question to the school, there was no response or he kept tossing me to another department, avoiding his responsibility and answer.
Above all, almost before the start of the new semester, they do not tell me whether I have passed or not. Of course, I have asked several times. I no longer wanted to contact or attend this disappointing school. I'm just very worried about the future of that graduate school.
Another school I applied to is the University of Adelphi. I respect all the faculty and staff of this university's graduate school. When I contacted them, they were surprisingly quick to respond within minutes. As everyone knows, even a very busy professor took less than a day to answer. They responded quickly and kindly as if they were chatting in real time. Thanks to this, I did not have time to feel any worries, fears, or vagueness.
The quality of the answers is also very special. Instead of giving short and yes or no answers, they try to solve the problem as much as possible by attaching the link and estimating what difficulties I may have. I did not know what to do or what to do because it was the first time I went to graduate school in the United States after immigrating to the United States and becoming an American. But they are great guides to me like a lighthouse.
As much as I have free time, I plan to write here my experiences and impressions while attending this school. Below is a screen shot of this campus site that you will see once you become a student at that school.
The below screen is a main intro page of the university. And I had to click the eCampus to create my classes for fall 2022/2023.
You can register for a course by clicking the class icon below.
When you enter the class, you can check the menu for course registration as shown below, the financial aid menu for various awards and loans, and the health record menu. Additionally, you can check your e-bills or housing deposit to make a payment. Here is shown your grades per each semester.
If you become a student of the Adelphi University, you can get a great service as shown as below :
Currently, I have completed the 9-credit course registration for the fall semester and I am contacting a practitioner to apply for Financial Aid. I will post a description of the school and major later.
