What’s your take on Sheridan College?

I am really interested in advertising, and am thinking about going to Sheridan College in Ontario. The problem is I don’t know how reputable it is. I can’t seem to find anything that says it has a top notch advertising program. Also, the tuition seems rather low, which makes me question if it is really a good school.
I want to eventually work at a top agency like yours. Any advice on what schools ad agencies look at when hiring? Thanks.

intro Whats your take on Sheridan College?Top notch isn’t the image that leaps to mind. It’s ok, and we’ve seen some very talented people from there. It’s smart to really do your homework when you look at schools and it seems reasonable to us that you should ask them to show you their best student work and point to their successful graduates as references and examples of their program’s success. If they don’t have this kind of information available for you, take that as a signal of a program that falls well short of great.

Our idea of a just about perfect ad school is the VCU Adcenter in Richmond, Virginia. It’s a two year masters program and we’ve hired a few of their graduates. This school truly puts just about every school in every country to shame. It’s poised to get even better under the leadership of their new president, the legendary Rick Boyko. Check out their site to see what we mean.
