I worked at Ex'pression College for Digital Arts full-time (More than 8 years)
The students are amazing! The old instructors were amazing, the staff and employees had a true love for working there.
Enrollment declined with the recession which led to many reductions in staff and then dwindled more. The magic so to speak started to lessen.
Advice to Management
Unfortunately none of the management I worked with are no longer there, but I would recommend getting into the trenches with your people and learn how valuable each employee is.
