4 College Student

Career Services: I recently was Town Hall meeting at the school and found it very informative as it was an actual company hosting the event. You had the opportunity to ask questions of the company, which was very good. I found very good information in the Career Resources Center. It helps you create your resume, cover letter and identify your skills.

Campus Resources: Extremely satisfied with the flexibility and the timely manner in which the courses coincide with each other. In one class if you are working on an assignment the next class would have something similar. I found it very helpful to finishing an assignment from all classes. Socially you can meet with other students of the classes using the student lounge online.

Campus Resources: computer network, and WiFi are good, so is the library can help student find many useable reference for homework, printer, scanner, copying...

3 College Student

Academic Experience: This school is very pricey, and lack of facility with projectors for teaching, inside class room is aged and simple. It don't have a transportation/shuttle stop near by cal-train station.

Anyway I learned a lot in this school other than my old school, all the teachers are professional, all class with interest workloads and marital.

Other than too pricey and not convenience from class to class, building to building, I really like this school.

1 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's pretty pricey. I have to work full time just to pay for my tuition with financial aid included!

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The network is okay, specifically in the graphic/digital building. I'd say at least once a week something network related will happen that disrupts the flow of the class.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: AAU is great at demonstrating current industry standards and maintaining a relevant course of classes that keep upcoming students above the curve.

3 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The campus resources are plentiful. They have everything you may need and more. Most importantly they have all the necessary technology to keep up with current trends of our time. This not only includes the physical hardware and software needed to produce professional top-grade work, but also provide with great, insightful instructors that know a lot about their work because they are still deeply involved in industry.

The campus buildings are very nice and decorated apropos to your major. I am in Web Design & New Media so when I get off at my floor, the center room is aligned with Computers and Ipads demonstrating previous students work. It is all very inspiring.

In regards to campus activities I am not very active with anything outside of my classes. I do receive emails once in a while about interesting things going on with the student body. E.G. they would set up events and activities for major holidays and what not.

3 College Sophomore

Online Courses: I was worried about online classes at first but found them to be very convenient for my schedule. They are easier for Liberal Arts classes but I don't recommend them for Foundation classes because it's harder to get assistance and a fair grade online than in class.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: This school provides instructors that are currently working in the art industries that students are majoring in, so you are learning from professionals! They also provide workshops and tutoring sessions for those that need a little extra help improving their skills. Unfortunately, the transportation system and dorm situations are a bit tricky and irritating to get used to at first, but overall this school is a great opportunity and gives a high chance of getting into the careers students are looking forward to.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: It depends, some students do seem really focused and want to work hard, but others are lacking badly and they don't try to add anything to the class, and sometimes it's a little difficult with students like this.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I'm a film major and it's great, all of the classes are geared towards the ultimate goal of becoming a filmmaker. I learn something useful and practical new everyday.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: While the campus is very spread out (all over the city) there are 2 gyms, 3 dinning halls, multiple student cafes and many dorms with active RA's who plan events, there is the Cafe that shows recent movies every few weeks, the library is very large and resourceful and two floors above the school's mac lab which is great for printing in black and white.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Out of the classes I've had so far the professors have been really helpful for the most part, already I've had one teacher who hasn't been that great at explaining/teaching however over all I feel as though they pick good people to teach the student body at least in the Graphic Design department. They provide multiple workshops for students to catch up and help them out. It's my understanding that the student resource center ARC is very good with helping students balance their lives

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I haven't had many problems with the school it's self, all my credits have transferred but I did plan ahead with the school to make sure all the classes I took would transfer in. They plan out your schedule with you over the phone and they will work with you on what days you want class and when, they have morning, afternoon, late afternoon and evening classes to choose from

5 College Junior

Online Courses: Classes are divided into modules, a topic per week. There are reading assigments and lots of helpful videos to watch. I especially like the videos because you can watch them more than once if you need more emphasis on a topic. We have discussion topics which are similar to in-class discussions. Exercises and Assignments are submitted to the website for feedback and grading. This was the best choice for current situation.

Career Services: Im currently scheduled here and they have sent me tons of emails about networking and getting internships its really great.

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: its convenient, don't like the beginner classes that they force you to take even if you have proof that your not a beginner.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: Good programs...they could find better instructors for some of them though

3 College Senior

Online Courses: mimics a classroom but would take technical classes onsite for better instruction

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: See above answer. The school has all the aforementioned activities.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources: They have some activities which is great. I just wish there were more activities based on majors instead of hiking, bowling etc..

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I am a master's candidate. The curriculum is more suited to a bachelor's program.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: I come from a design background. I expected the course work for a master's to be a bit higher than entry level. But, If you're not a designer, this is the school for you.
