The most prestigious is probably the Rhode Island School of Design (http://www.risd.edu/). They have a graphic design program and from what I understand, offer opportunities for international students.

A good friend of mine was in the University of Texas at Austin's Design program (http://www.finearts.utexas.edu/aah/) and loved it (I think - she never complained anyway!). Smile It's a huge school (about 50,000) but has quite a good reputation, not to mention Austin is simply a great place to live. Mr. Green

I don't know if it would help, but there is a complete list of graphic design programs in the US on Peterson's (http://www.petersons.com/). I don't know if you're looking for an undergraduate or graduate program, but all are searchable here.

Good luck! Very Happy

You can also try U.S. News and World Reports' College Finder. You can narrow your search by major, location, private/public schools, selectivity, financial aid/tuition costs, etc.

P.S. I'll second Austin as a great place to live. I grew up there. **Hook 'em Horns!**

You're making me nostalgic, Brook (particularly with the weather today in Rochester!).
