The community at AAC is absolutely fantastic- being a small school, the student community is amazing. However, there is a HUGE disparity in the quality of teachers, especially considering the fact that only 8 of our faculty are full-time, and of those there are probably two who are absolutely garbage at their job. Also being a small school, there have also been a number of security issues that wouldn't happen at larger schools, including things like theft and vandalism in the school building. We've also had issues the past few years with staff retainment and it's hard to find non-faculty staff members to rely on because people are constantly leaving.

I do love the teachers at this college, but the school is not safe around campus, people are stealing stuff within the studios and they are just now getting security cameras. This is my third year and they threw Juniors under the bus because they switched how credits worked for the whole course. Some advisers wanted certain students to not take a certain class, and now behind in credits they need to graduate. The teachers will step aside and will talk to you besides class time to make sure you are learning what you need to learn, however, they are not really teaching on how to get your first contractor or how to go about in getting a job. They do encourage students to explore mediums and subjects, and second term of junior year along with senior year, they want students to make work that is a body of work.

The dorms are right across the street from the single-building school which is a huge convenience. Each rooms in the 12th St. dorms also comes with a full bathroom, kitchen, and washer/dryer in-building which is fantastic. The 13th street dorms are a little less convenient, featuring single bedrooms with a connected toilet and sink and shared kitchen and showers and coin laundry. The dorm community is absolutely amazing- when I lived in the dorms no one locked their doors and everyone had total mutual respect for one another. Depending on the students there can be a little partying and most of the RAs are very lax on rules, but outside of the expense there are no other substantial problems.
