Campus Resources: For the Interior Design Program we have a resource room always full of materials to use, there is always something new. The staff is great always available to answer questions and very helpful.

5 College Junior

Career Services: The Art Institute of Atlanta is the best at it's career service.

5 College Junior

Online Courses: The online courses for the Art Institute of Atlanta are marvelous.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: The Art Institute of Atlanta flexibility is quite reasonable.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The Art Institute of Atlanta has many opportunities to get a job, start your career and start with internships. It is great with many of the teachers that all have worked in the field. Although, some of the rules I wish could be different.

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition is extremely hard to manage. If you skip a quarter and come back, your tuition is now far higher, which I don't mind because I don't skip quarters, but I can see how it would affect some. I myself struggle with paying monthly payments (yes, monthly payments to my college on top of loans). I get financial aid to knock off quite a bit of debt, sure, but even that is just enough to save me from failure, not give me stress relief. If the school itself gave out more scholarship money, maybe things would be different.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: I honestly feel that game art & design, animation, and visual game programming majors have the best instructors and courses, though obviously that's biased. Our workloads are large--producing games, creating large animatinons that take intense render times, etc. But despite our intense work, our results usually make going to class worth it. I enjoy seeing everyone's finished products. It also gives a sense of how high the bar is raised.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Most professors/instructors at our school are great. There are a few that are absolutely terrible, so watch out. If you get stuck with a terrible instructor for an introduction course, chances are you'll struggle in the next course similar. That was my problem with my first and second 3D modeling courses, because I bounced from an instructor who barely helped to an instructor who expected far too much. Other than that, the curriculum is pretty good.

Campus Resources: If you want to know about athletic centers or campus activities, let me go ahead and say that those two categories alone will get poor ratings. But the one thing keeping my rating so high is the list of available software for us to use for both projects and extracurricular activities. We have the entire up-to-date Adobe Creative Suite 6 as well as most to all Autodesk products and a few game design engines.

Academic Flexibility: It's a gamble as to whom will be flexible when helping you. I once had a pretty steep fee that needed to be paid before the next quarter, but the head of accounting managed to help me break it down and allow me to continue school. My department chair is always struggling to find a decent schedule for me, even though it is usually for naught. Some financial aid workers will clear holds and leave notices to continue what needs work, while others will make you get everything together on the spot. Dealing with housing is just never going to work out well. Trust me. Housing administration isn't rude or unwilling, but it will never fully fix your problem.

Facilities: There's barely a campus. We are now down to only having one building with five floors and a small parking area. Our library is fairly small and we surprisingly don't have any area for performing arts, despite being an art school. At least most facilities are in good condition. And I can't complain about our animation lab or the several computer labs with 3D modeling programs to use.

4 College Junior

Career Services: Our school has connections to many industries. While I can't approve the pre-grad job aid, the post-grad tends to be a very big deal with much credit to it. We have a portfolio show for every major. We even have multiple portfolio classes to prepare every student for graduation and life after graduation. We get prepped for business cards, media-ready work, dos and don'ts, nice touches for our display, etc.

4 College Junior

Student Body: We have students from all over the country and even some from various places across the globe. Two excellent examples are my Colombian friend and my Saudi Arabian friend. While we all have various ethnicities, sexual orientations, economic backgrounds, etc., what sets our school apart the most is our major. Various majors have stereotypes for personalities. Anyone who goes to our school will probably notice this after two or three months. Other than a possible intolerance of certain majors, most students are perfectly accepting of anyone's sexual orientation or beliefs.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: The Art Institute of Atlanta has excellent instructors, professors, doctors, and media specialists. I've learned a large amount of about the programs of the media industry, yet haven't covered nearly enough to graduate just yet. I am well on the way to being portfolio-ready. I just wish the other administration was as competent. My schedule is a hassle to complete; housing is not only hard to stay in, but dangerous depending on location; I am constantly getting false charges for additional fees that I must cover before the next quarter/semester. If the administration can improve, AIA would be an ideal art school for the southern United States.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: My online professor was extremely rude to every student and did not give useful critique for any assignment. The class was a condensed 5.5 weeks (as opposed to a 10 week traditional course). The work was hard to finish in those short weeks, but manageable. The course itself provided a lot of information pertaining to my major and was extremely useful.
