The review created for American International College was very racist and inaccurate to say the least. Nevertheless I have to say that with "a school that sit in the middle of a predominantly African American neighborhood", "well we po folk sho do appreciate how you jus mozied on down her and insulted us jus so"... I would have whom ever had the responsibility of writing this review has created a grossly false depiction of a wonderful, small, private, modern, classic college neselled in the comforts of an historic community that's not only protective but welcoming. With wonderful professors, wonderful dining commons, beautiful fire place study cove in the winter and a beach blast in the spring. A president who plays catch daily with every student and faculty member that walks by whether they want to or not just to put a smile on someone's face. Smiling Springfield City police officers employed in campus for everyone's saftey daily 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Constant physical activities and destressor quad celebrations just to help students prepare or debrief.

American International College as many other colleges has its imperfections, however to put a school doe because of the area in which it's in and to judge the area and the people in that area by the color of their skin is quite out dated and as my statistics show, have no effect on our Interpersonal Race Relations and How They Effect the Community.

Sincerely,

Disappointed

My experience here at American International College has been up and down. When I began, I began as an excited OT (occupational therapy) student with such excitement and dreams that had already been shattered10 years ago. Nevertheless, I was ready to take that step head on full force and after being out of school (college that was at the time) fifteen years already, there were many things I had to catch up to without help getting there and that was a difficult experience. But then realising that the college itself was split into two different entities, a medical school and a college of psychology, sociology, business, and criminal justice that were a part aof and entire different " school". That I didn't like at all, because the med program, even though I did very well academically until my spirit began to be broken, behind the differences in the care and welfare some professors on that side of campus take in the quality of care the students received as the professors do where I am now graduatin from I would have had a better start and would have never dropped my GPA behind foolishness of those still lost in a century of hate. Overall now that I'm graduating in May and have completed my course load as Psychology major with a minor in Sociology, I love American International College so much that I will be returning in the fall for myMasters/ Doctorates in Clinical Psychology with an interest in Forensics.

American international was great when I came in my freshmen year, I learned quickly that was not the case. None of the higher up staff is on the same page. They do not communicate well, they do not treat there students equal at all. They will always take the side of an athlete and give them more support then a student strictly there for academics. Campus police does not investigate incidents that happen and when they do they invest all there time on one side and do it poorly. This biggest problem with this school has to do with there Athletic director, president, and res life leaders. The staff constantly ignores problems they do not what to deal with or problems that they messed up on. The only good thing about american international college is there Academics, if you want your degree go here, they will pretty much hand it to you. This is a disgrace of a college and i would not recommend it to anyone
