My 18-y-o has been college shopping for the past few months. She got it narrowed down to two, and had appointments to take a tour of both. After her first visit to UVU (just down the road from us) she was very excited about their website design program.
She searched the other university's website to find a comparable program for comparison, but could only find a single web design course. So I called the university (which I shall allow to remain anonymous) and told them I would like to talk to someone familiar with their web design program. The girl said "So is that like interior design?"
"No I said web design."
"No. Web. Like the Internet. Computers."
"Art and graphic design?"
She transferred me to the art department. They transferred me to the computer department. Who transferred me to information systems. They suggested I try the art department.
Here's what the adviser in the computer department said:(And I'm not making this up.) "Web design? That's really more of a hobby."
Yeah right. My next call was to cancel the tour.
