4 College Junior

Student Body: AI has a very diverse population. The people that I have met are usually very nice and pleasant to deal with.

3 College Junior

Online Courses: Never took any online courses

4 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Everything is pretty straightforward. I have a financial adviser to help me through every step of the way. I believe that I am getting an excellent education and I feel hopeful and positive for the future that I will be able to get a job in my field.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Previously I went to a different university and learned bare-minimum. After attending this school for one quarter i saw the increase of quality in my work in those 11 weeks. I believe since you have just a short time to absorb the things you are learning.You absorb what the professors have to teach you better and it stays as a part of you.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: With the school going by the quarter system(11 weeks). It makes the workload from your classes seem overwhelming. But by the time the end of the quarter comes you'll see improvement in your skill.

5 College Junior

Academic Experience: The fifth week is when you register for class and they have 3 ways for doing it. You can call the school, register in the hallway, or online. It takes a big hassle off of your hands by doing it this way.

College Junior

Online Courses: I have not taken any online courses so I personally can not give any feedback.

5 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: Since I could not qualify for many loans. The school put me on a payment plan to replace not having loans. Sure it means I have to balance school and being a full time student. But the bright side is having no loans to increase the debut i created at a different college.

5 College Junior

Student Body: The student body reminds me of a teenage high school sitcom. You have your weirdos(Media Art students), preppy students(Fashion and Interior Design students), social outcast (Animation, Game Design, Illustration), and your jocks(Advertising and Management).

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: I LOVE THE LIBRARY. So many books in there to read and references for different art styles.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: The only downside to the schools network is that the wifi sucks and the speed of the computers are very slow

3 College Junior

Facilities: The facility are okay. There are some that are amazing, but there are also some that aren't that bright in what they teach or that great as a professor anymore due to age.

5 College Junior

Career Services: Since getting a job with the degree of an "Artist" is pretty hard. This school helps students by bringing in companies your senior year to help showcase your work and talent to potential clients/companies.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I love my major! One can't be influenced when it comes to passion. I only wish all of my instructors carried the same passion. I respect and regard many of my professors highly, others lack much of the experience, knowledge, and organization needed to be an instructor at this level and I find it very, very had to respect them as an educator or scholar.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I wish all of my instructors were knowledgeable and experienced enough to teach at this level. Many of my instructors have lacked organization and communication skills, making it very hard to learn much from them, and very hard to respect them as educators.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I am realizing that I am not taking advantage of many reasons I chose this school. I am paying far too much money for the quality of education I am receiving.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: My school is different in that it gives lots of opportunities and insight into real-world application

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: The majority of these topics don't raise any flags, my experience with them was neither good nor bad. Transferring credits was a hassle, though. it took me far too long to find someone who knew who to talk to about transferring AP credits.

2 College Sophomore

Student Body: There is some diversity, but large chunks of the student body are made up of one of two demographics. The majority of our students are black (inner-city) or white (suburban), with few other cultures being represented.

1 College Sophomore

Online Courses: Workload for my online class experience was awful. I was responsible for completing the amount of work that would take a student 5 months in another college, in 5 weeks. I was extremely overwhelmed, and the subject was one of my personal best. I found the class tedious and unnecessary, I was unable to really take time to learn anything because I was simply trying to stay at pace with the class assignments.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Not being a traditional university, we don't have much for a campus, but that's what we are all signing up for anyway. Our student lounges and library are satisfactory.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: The wifi is sometimes slow, but nothing is perfect. Printing and sharing electronically are easy enough processes.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: Networking, and career services at my school are top-notch. I am very impressed with career services, and their ability to place students at jobs during their schooling, internships, and jobs in their chosen career field after graduation. the staff in this department take great effort in knowing students individually. Career services has far exceeded my expectations.

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I feel as though not equal effort and opportunity is given to every student. I feel as though many students are able to easily receive much more financial help than is available to me because of racial classification, place/city of origin, etc. I am a hardworking student, and am going to take my schooling more seriously and do more for the world with my degree than most of these students. I am greatly disappointed with this, clearly I am also in need of financial help, help should be given to those most deserving, not those who fit in certain categories.
