4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The labs are well equipped, the computers are accessible and have good speed. There will always be hiccups with wifi, but staff is readily available to help. The network is quite reliable. Printing on campus is fine. Even if there is a class going on, the teachers are willing to allow access to an available computer.

Academic Flexibility: My experience has been quite good. They've worked with me to arrange my classes to better help me. They have help with in answering questions about my assignments and provided constructive criticism in order to achieve the best of me. I have not had to transfer from another school as I had chosen Paier from the beginning.

Student Body: Has a school that started out as a school for returning veterans after WWII drafting, it has evolved into a great art school. The student body is very diverse and interesting. They are part-time or full-time students. Some of them have families and are working as they attend school. What I like the most is that we have students between the ages of 17 through 80!

Tuition & Financial Aid: The financial aid process at my school has always gone extremely smooth. The process is simple, and there is always someone to help you, during school hours, or by a phone call. The school's tuition is much cheaper then most art school's, but I feel that it has been worth every single penny.

Academic Experience: Variety of Courses, Hands-On Teachers – There are a wide variety of courses offered at this school and that are not limited to just those in that program. For example, if you are a photography major, but you want to take a painting course, you are able to do so. The teachers are very involved and like to help in any way they can. They'll work one on one with you until you're comfortable. As far as the registration process goes, that is also very well as all you need to do is meet with your adviser, look over which classes you have already taken for your program, and which classes you still need to take. Everything is done by hand and the process does not take that long.

Academic Flexibility: Pretty Flexible – I attended a community college as part of a program I was in in high school. I was able to transfer those credits over once enrolled at Paier College of Art, Inc. Depending on which teacher you have the classes themselves can be pretty flexible; whenever I needed to leave a little early to go to work, it was never a hassle.

Student Body: Wide Variety – There are a wide variety of students at the school I attend. From young, right out of high school students, to parents with children also attending college. All of them are very friendly and easy to get to know, as my school is not that large and therefore small in the number of student body. Everyone there works hard and puts out their best effort in everything they do.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Small Campus – is a really small school. the staff is great but i find it hard when so many students need parking space. The building is very small, i don't think it even has an elevator

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Happy With Choice – I am learning the things I need to pursue my career ambitions.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Small Class Sizes – Paier College of Art is a very small school. The class sizes are usually 15 students or less, which guarantees a lot of individual attention from each faculty member.

3 College Junior

Career Services: Pretty Good – We don't have an actual Career center at my school. We do have a board in the lunch center that has postings of jobs in the state (people needing painters or illustrators or graphic artists, etc) But at the same time the teachers do tell us how we can get our name out there to pick up potential clients, and some of our assignments are geared toward putting together a mailer resume, or making portfolio style pieces.

Overall Experience: Why I Love This School – The teachers and faculty are amazing. They will work with you on any issues you may have, whether it be financial, academic...anything. At the college I attended before this one it seemed the faculty only cared about money. If you didn't pay something on time, or you owed even fifty dollars, they would hound you until it was paid and you wouldn't be able to register for the next semester. At this school they will work with you financially, they will set up payment plans and they help you find grants and scholarship contests. I love this school and I would choose it again if I had to.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: Top Notch – With Graphic Design being one of the majors at Paier, the computers are top notch. We work on Macs and have all of the updated programs needed to do the work required. There are two computer labs as well as two photography labs and a few different type of printers used for different projects. Nine times out of ten the internet is very reliable. However there are some days where the network acts up.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Very Helpful – Again, the school has been great as far as helping me find financial aid, and also being lenient when it comes to monthly payments. If I can't afford it at the due time, they give me an extension with no issues. As far as the amounts I have to pay; with it being an art school and the amount of experience the teachers have so I know I'm getting the best knowledge possible, I think the price is reasonable. As far as getting financial aid, I'd suggest looking online for any scholarships, and also talking to your financial aid adviser to see if s/he can help you find aid.

Campus Resources: Unlike the school I attended previously, Paier was very willing to work with me when it came to payments. If I didn't have the money that I needed to pay that month, or at least some of it, they were willing to give me an extension. They were also very helpful when it came to helping me find grants.

Academic Experience: the academic experience is really good all of the teachers have a great approach to teaching

Overall Experience: Art School – so far i have learned a lot from attending Paier college of art and i love the environment.
