One of the top, if not the top, art schools in the USA. Other art schools / art students are always trying to put it down (despite its incredibly long list of notable alumni and high rankings) by calling it overrated (some people say Yale is overrated too, whatever). Popularly known as "RISD" (Riz-dee). Notable alumni include Seth Macfarlane and Kara Walker. The school has an acceptance rate of 35% as of 2010 according to the college board. Risd has been graced by the presence of numerous famous/important people, like Yo-Yo Ma. RISD students have had the opportunity to work with engineers and designers from NASA. The school has awesome facilities and a career services department that pretty much rivals that of most other art schools in the states.

People often comment on how weird RISD students dress. Many RISD kids are seen as (and admittedly, really are) hipsters.
