Campus Resources: Many times the WiFi is very slow and glitchy. I believe they only have 1 server. I think it would speed things up and be very beneficial if they added another server.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The library is quite extensive for what we needed. The campus is basically Chicago so that's not bad.

3 College Sophomore

Student Body: Many students are very diverse but the level intellectuality is sometimes under what I consider the norm. Now, that's not saying I'm some sort of genius or anything.

5 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: the classes are convenient, and if it's on my work schedule the school's registrar is understanding and does anything that's possible to accommodate
my school schedule to my work schedule.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: i honestly love going to school. the people right there are fun to hang out with even the instructors are artist, they like to share their experiences when they were in college, some of the instructors are alumni from the american academy of art, so they know what we're going through and what to expect.

3 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: i can't remember how much i pay and don't want to know. but it's a bit expensive and can only afford to go half time and so far i can only afford it, i've been keeping up with the school year by going all year around. they've told me the option i have to help me pay school so i could go full time.

5 College Sophomore

Career Services: the amazing thing about my school is that career service helps us build our portfolios and and help us prepare our portfolios before we graduate, but the most amazing part is that after we graduate we get help finding a job even after years pass we still will have help if 25 years pass!

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: well, the school is very diverse! there are people from all over the city and country and other countries! and bring with them their culture. and there are full time and part time students so everyone has a chance to come and study at the american academy of art.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: well, i go to an art school so it's slightly different from a traditional college/university. But it can be a bit more stressful because we do draw and also take general ed classes, the studio classes are focus on projects and we have to meet dead lines. the general ed classes also have dead lines and require more of our attention and we have to learn how to focus more.the class' hours are different from each other. the art studio classes are two hours and ten minutes and the general ed classes are one hour and forty five minutes.and usually have 10 to 30 minute break. the classes are from Monday to Thursday,the studio classes are taken all four days of the school's week and the general ed classes are taken two days of the week. we have Fridays off so it gives me time to catch up with my work. i major in oil painting so i do take a lot of painting classes and sometimes the academic work and studio work come or have the same dead lines and it can be frustrating.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: the school's staff is great. the school is a small school so there's rarely any waiting list to go and talk to specific school's administration worker. they have an open door policy,so if they're available they will attend you right there.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: My school has a very unique crowd of students. Each one has interesting talents, topics of interest, etc. Since attending AAA, creating friendships has been easy and fun.
