  • I was one in the first graduating class of 1970
    The Good Part:
    I studied Radio & TV Repair
    The Bad Part:
    The teachings in the text were about vacuum tubes which were discontinued at that time.

Doesn't matter if they scream it infront of the whole class. Most of the teachers are great. I loved Y.E.L.L./K.B.G. Chess Club, and Book Club.

My Career Teacher didn't tell ANY ONE there were NO jobs in graphic arts. other than that it was great.
