Campus Resources: A couple of improvements to be made would be the library and student lounge; both are pretty small and seem very limited seating.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: Our computers are nice Macs. As a non-Mac user, the computers give a option to use it as a PC which is good. We have many computer labs available which makes working at school easier

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The faculty that teach Interior Design is absolutely fantastic! They are very knowledgeable and are there for when needed in-school and out-school. Workload is a lot more than I expected but it will help me prepare for my career. The only thing that can be improved is the student to teacher ratio; I have been in many classes where there were 20 students and one teacher. Since everything is very hand-on, trying to one-on-one time with the teachers in those situations is hard

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: There are many many programs offered at my school, which is awesome, They offer Interior Design, Graphic Design, Photography, Animation and Fashion, to name a few.

4 College Senior

Student Body: As an art school, there are many talented students and diverse. They always have student organization events rather it is fund raising for or just for fun. Students are very driven, especially in my major, which is Interior Design

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: So far the teachers are great and they are giving us good academic and learning challenges to push ourselves to work harder.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Everything has been good so far.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Haven't been able to easily choose my classes, it's almost always chosen for me without flexibility.

3 College Sophomore

Career Services: Haven't used these services yet.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Haven't used any of the campus resources yet.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Computer labs are great but they need to improve their Wifi speeds and connectivity.

4 College Sophomore

Online Courses: They have a good set-up for work and reading, as well as assignments to learn what is needed out of the class.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: I feel like the school could use a more artistic approach to its interior design, but otherwise it is clean and up to date, well maintained.

5 College Sophomore

Student Body: There hasn't been any noticeable discrimination, no culture or sex-orientation problems whatsoever. They seem to really accept anyone that is there to learn.

4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: I have had no major problems with accessing my financial aid advisers, though I do feel there could be an easier way to make payments and/or have a lower bill.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I absolutely love all the classes I have taken at my school. All the instructors have been great and the courses were fun and informative. I have seen my skills increase tremendously. The administration is what really sways my overall experience towards the school. I do not like the way the school is run and I don't think they are very helpful. I would not choose this school again to the poor experience with the administration.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: The tuition and boarding fees at the school are very high, which was expected in applying to a private institute. I have had major troubles with my financial aid and getting access to it. My financial aid adviser either quit or got fired and I was not notified. I had to find a new financial aid adviser. I have been charged fees from resources that I have no idea what were for. I have trouble getting answers to my questions.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I have not used any of these services at the school.

4 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I have had a lot of trouble with my classes due to my commute to the school being so long. The school worked around my schedule perfectly to where it fit my schedule. The administrators don't offer much flexibility with picking out classes.

3 College Junior

Campus Resources: The library is quite small because it offers books strictly related to the majors offered at AI but they are good references. There are many different activities offered but the timing of the activities aren't completely student friendly.

5 College Junior

Campus Resources: Since many of the majors are computer based, the school has a great computer network. It offers both PC's and Mac's to choose liking preference. Everything is up to date and must be top quality because of the degrees offered.

4 College Junior

Student Body: There are a variety of students at AI. Because the school is strictly art majors, you see people from every ethnic background, economic status, religion, etc. The school has a strict policy on it's acceptance so everyone there is very accepting.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: I have loved all the classes I have taken at the Art Institute but I have had a problem with the administration the entire time I have been there. I do not have easy access to financial aid help or getting any questions answered. I have been switched to 3 different advisers in the course of a year because 2 of them who formerly worked there either quit or got fired. My financial aid adviser also either quit or got fired. I do however love the facilities, the program, the curriculum, the classwork, the teachers, and all the opportunities AI offers.
