Academic Experience: I adore AAU. The advertising department is filled with incredibly bright instructors who know how to motivate and extract your best work. The school isn't for everyone though. You need to be ready to work your butt off to get the results.

Academic Experience: With the exception of an obnoxious typography class that duplicated the content of a previous course, all of the classes in the degree program were relevant and rewarding.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The major I am currently pursuing is a new major option, but I have learned how to improve my skills. The workload can become heavy at times, but in the end it did was beneficial.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Personally the curriculum was diverse and offered a chance for me to really see what I needed to work on.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: The online environment is a bit isolating. I like it in a way that you can go there on your own time but it's really lacking the personal experience. I know that's what it's all about though, being able to go in on your own time if you can't be in San Francisco.
