Our student body is diverse and inclusive
Diversity breeds innovation - this is a fact that guides Make School's mission to ensure that higher education is accessible to all. We see diversity as a key element to the success of organizations and the tech community as a whole. We are building a college and a community that supports the learning and success of students from all genders, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, and societal or economic backgrounds. We consider freedom of thought and the open exchange of ideas key to an effective learning environment. That kind of exchange can happen only in an environment that recognizes the value of each person and fosters mutual respect. As a college with small classes, we are uniquely positioned to provide individualized support that allows all students to succeed. Make School implements research-based strategies and policies to provide a safe, nurturing environment for women and underrepresented minorities to excel.
You'll live in the heart of Silicon Valley
Living in San Francisco puts students at the heart of the technology industry's biggest hub and one of the world's most vibrant cities. As a student, you will be studying right next to both the large companies and startups that power much of the software we all use on a daily basis.
Make School enables students to soak up crucial networking and learning opportunities with industry leading companies. We organize regular field trips to company offices and also conduct a recurring speaker series, which hosts successful entrepreneurs, executives, and engineers from companies like Pixar, Lyft, LinkedIn, Netflix and more.
Make School has a unique culture of community and inclusion, in that we want students to live together, work together, and grow their bond as cohort members. Living in the dorms allows students to create support systems and ultimately make lifelong friendships.
Our dorms are located in Nob Hill and are a ~10 minute walk from campus. Dorms are staffed with a live-in full time Make School staff member and Resident Assistants (RAs), who help to foster a safe, engaging and exciting environment for students. RAs are current students (seniors) who plan events such as monthly game nights, dinners and study sessions. Most students find it beneficial to live with their peers, as they can collaborate on projects and help each other during nights and weekends.
