2 College Junior

Facilities: We share a commercial building with 1 or 2 other businesses. We are limited to the 1st and 3rd floor. The Businesses have complained about us coming through the front door, or parking in the front of the building. Personally, for $30k a year, I will walk through whatever door I want.

1 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I had 3 fashion classes that did not transfer to my fashion program.

2 College Junior

Academic Experience: Fashion majors are not given much respect. For the most part, this is because the majority of people in this major are young valley girls who just want to look cute and have fashion shows. Our teachers are dropping like flies. They can't keep anyone. Recently they demoted/fired all the academic directors. I have learned some great things, but I could have learned them at UT for $15,000 less a year.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Unless the professor has a doctorate degree, it is likely they just need another job to make ends meet. Classes are 4 hours long each, offered at 3 times a day. 8-12. 1-5. 6-10. Add an extra 20 minutes if it is a general education course.

College Junior

Career Services: I have not used career services.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: They have an entire office dedicated to renting out students equipment. They have a wide variety of items and rentals are free. They are very strict, but that works in your favor. The library is tiny, but there are so many resources available within it. There is also a huge selection of databases. Black and White printing is always free. They have a color printing office that charges per print. They also have mac computer labs with the latest adobe creative suite on them.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: Intranet. It's alright. Nothing special. Goes out quite a bit.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is extremely diverse, yet can be cliquish. We have students in their thirties and students fresh out of high school. There is a large veteran presence here. It is very ethnically diverse. Female Fashion majors be warned, there are very very few straight males in your major. General Education classes are the closest things you will get to co-ed school life.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I think the Art Institute is an excellent school and I prefer attending here over any other university due to the small class sizes, hands on experience I am receiving, and the many resources that are offered and available to me as a student to help me succeed.

5 College Senior

Career Services: There is a very high turn out of students who find work after they finish school here. The faculty strives to help students find internships they can work on while still in school, and some of them are paid. Career services also helps students find part-time work outside of students majors and once students have graduated they will still help them in the job seeking process.

4 College Senior

Facilities: I like the fact that the student work is displayed throughout the halls, and every other month there is a new student artwork exhibit in the admissions office that provides mixed media art.

3 College Senior

Student Body: I am in my 4th quarter at the Art Institute, and I have met some really interesting people, but I do feel that it is hard to make friends and keep them sometimes with schedules constantly changing and so many different majors offered at the school.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I have no trouble with flexibility and being able to work with my school schedule so that I have time and availability to work and have a social life outside of school as well.

3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I receive the maximum federal aid award that is allowed for this school, and because I have a high GPA I am also awarded the Merit award. These two help toward my tuition, supplies, and other fees, but I am still having to take out 3 other loans just to take the course load I need to graduate in a timely manner. I feel that there should be more financial options to help pay for school and I think that federal funding could be increased.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are plenty of open classrooms that provide computers,printers, etc. that the students may use in their spare time and the school is open until midnight every day of the week so that students may utilize the facilities to complete their projects. The library has a reasonable schedule of which they are open and there is a large collection of resources available to students.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: There are many open classrooms that provide computers, printers, and other equipment that students may utilize to complete their projects. There is also a media resource center where students may check out equipment they may need for a period of up to 48 hours at a time. There is also a separate printing lab where students may have projects scanned in and or printed at poster size.

4 College Senior

Online Courses: I have taken several online courses and even though they do differ from the traditional classroom based experience, they are set up so that they are very interactive. I have options to video chat with my instructors, access the textbook digitally, as well as the assignments for the courses. There are discussion forums available to stimulate conversation and interaction between the students. Overall I think it is a pretty great system and I like the fact that the courses are a bit shorter, only 5 weeks.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Workload demanding sometimes but real world

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I just wish I would have picked a school with a bigger campus and more to do on-campus.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: There's a lot of diversity in the student body. Every one here is pretty unique and one of a kind.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: There's only a small library and that is about it. We share a building with other businesses and that's not really too convenient.
