3 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: This is my dream school and I am so lucky to be attending but I have to admit tuition is pretty high. Financial Aid only helps me enough to get two classes every semester and I honestly do not want to do loans every semester and rack up my debt. That is why I try so hard to win grants and scholarships. Basically finding more opportunities to help pay for school. I am in the middle class so anything helps.

5 College Senior

Online Courses: I feel online classes are very convenient especially when you have to work and get things done. You still learn everything as if you were in a classroom but at your own pace.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: The advisers and teachers really want to see their students succeed and work hard on making that happen. They always make sure you are treated fairly and respond to your questions within a few hours. It's a great school.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: They really make me feel as an individual not just some student.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: My major is Fashion Design. The workload isn't bad but I did find out there is much more to the fashion design world than just creating clothes. Also, my school provides internships and job opportunities for when you graduate 3-6 months after with some of the best in the Fashion Industry.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience: My adviser really makes sure i'm on top of my registration and getting prepared for my classes. and any questions I need answered the teachers always reply with very helpful answers.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: I get to work on my classes when I can and it's very convenient because I also work

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: The student body at the academy is very very diverse. There's a group of people for basically any race, religion or sexual orientation or social group here. This being an art school, there are a lot of very talented and creative people and most students are good at what they do. Some are downright amazing and people tend to work hard and play hard also. Whatever group you feel you fall into socially, you will find like minds at the academy and those who are different from you in whatever way will be friendly too. I've found that almost everyone here brings something different to the table and people generally don't judge or discriminate against others.

Campus Quality: There are dozens of buildings sprinkled in SF for each department and it's fun to go between them. They each have their own aesthetic and the labs are all different. I haven't had time to explore each one, but from the quick experiences I had delivering my work there I thought they were very clean and taken care of. I think the faculty and students care about going to AAU and the buildings show it.

Online Courses: That's all I've taken since I started and it's been a bit of a learning experience for me. I've never taken them before so it was hard to get used to first, but now I think I've got the hang of it. The accountability and time management are huge for online courses, you have to figure out when you'll do the work, how to space it out, how to communicate your questions to get enough time to get instructor's feedback before the assignment is due. So I learned a lot of planning skills along the way in addition to submitting HW via scanner, camera, and other means.

3 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: This summer semester one online class got cancelled due to low enrollment so I was bummed. But it was replaced by me adviser with another class so I was happy with it. Since I came from another discipline than art or design, none of my credits were transferred but I also was admitted into graduate program because I already had my BS.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: I like that there is no typical student here. They come from all disciplines and not all are art focused. The ones I've interacted with represented all backgrounds, ethnic, economic, religious, not sure about sexual since I didn't ask :)

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I've used the online library. It has nice perks like being able to download a copy of what I need, but it limits the number of pages I can download at one time. The IT is said to be working to fix the bugs, but I don't know how long it'll take. I found the workarounds with the help of the admin so the help was available.

Overall Experience: Based in my experience here so far, I really love this school and the city. I've made great friends already and I'm thriving in my academics and still have enough time for a social life. The student community is welcoming and I haven't had any bad experiences with meeting people or making friends and did I mention, I love this city? Cause I do and I haven't met a single resident here who doesn't. It's one of the things things that makes us love this school. We do pay a lot of money but so far, I'm getting my money's worth and I'd apply here again if I had to cause so far, I haven't had reason to regret it and I get to do what I love here and work towards a career in it and as far as art schools go, AAU is one to be reckoned with still.
