5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: It's the best due to it being in demand right now and my future looking bright.

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.

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.

Academic Experience: BAD. Stay away from this school its a waste of your money. The students are lazy some teachers are lazy, and the tuition is a rip off. The American Academy of art is like a vacation resort for people who are basically useless. Only a hand full of students are good, as for the rest they only went to art school because its the easy route. I cant work in this environment I have to be taken seriously. AAA is a very limited school, i would strongly suggest to go to a different art school because the students and the faculty are on vacation. GET A REAL EDUCATION.
