Being on campus feels more like working in a collaborative creative studio. From live venues, to production studios, to a Hollywood-style backlot, our spaces are designed for hands-on learning — giving students the environments, technology, and production tools to bring ideas to life.
There's another reason why our campus feels like a production studio — it operates on the same kind of schedule. Your classes and labs take the place around the clock, and the courses in your degree progress month-to-month — so you are fully immersed in your education.
Our student community is diverse and tight-knit, connected by a shared passion to create.
There's always some kind of collaboration going on, whether it's a film production on the backlot, a brainstorming session at Jet Fuel Cafe, or a game concept coming to life at Blackmoor Studios. Because degrees start each month, class sizes are small — giving you a chance to really get to know your classmates and instructors.
Through networking mixers, clubs, career expos, and social events like concerts and award show parties, it's easy to make connections.
When it comes to student groups, we have organizations that range from professional associations (GRAMMY U, DECA), to community service, to creative activities.
And every year, the Full Sail campus goes all out for Hall of Fame. We celebrate six alumni inductees each year and present an exciting week of guest speakers, industry meet and greets, plus music, block parties, games, and more.
Our educators bring knowledge and extensive professional experience to the table. They share a philosophy that teaching is less about dictating what to do, and more about coaching and mentorship. Education also comes from beyond the classroom through industry advisors — outside pros who stay engaged with degree programs to give feedback about advances and trends.
