Teachers are all working professionals in their field, each department has an internship coordinator to help link students to the field, the school itself is very well known in certain fields as a place to seek new talent

In 1994? None. The fiction writing department merely trained students to incorporate writing into whatever job they ended up in, not how to make money-much less a living-from their writing.

Average. The computer labs were often booked beyond capacity and one had to be a student in a computer class to use them.

Top notch. The dorms were actually two-bedroom apartments, the classrooms were cutting edge at the time. We didn't have a cafeteria but the restaurants/cafes were ideal for the population.
