Athletics: Do not under any circumstances, waste your funds at The Art Academy of Cincinnati. As someone who had to work ridiculously hard post-graduation to have my career and be successful, I am disappointed to report that I was horribly unprepared in my field. I'd also like to note that I graduated with honors, and was a very successful and driven student, and was even on the board.

The school ignores all practical and professional information for the theoretical and avant-garde. There should be a balance. Most departments only have one or two professors so your breadth of access to different viewpoints is severely limited, and in the areas of communication arts (graphic design, ad photography, and illustration) you are pushed to ignore professional practice and encouraged to copy the fine arts students. Internships are a disaster and you are only required to have one, relatively short one. I have repeatedly had points in my career where my superiors have asked "Didn't you learn that in school?"

After college, if you move out of Cincinnati, the alumni association will have no contact with you, except a yearly mailer begging for funds. There is no career development. They occasionally email current students about part-time and summer jobs. Post-grad you will hear nothing. (They do have an explanation of how to make a resume on their website.) Several of my fellow alumni have expressed the same sentiments and many find themselves much worse off.

Choose a bigger school with better connections and instructors. My friends who attended RISD, MICA, or Parsons were much more satisfied and with $45,000 of student loan debt, I definitely regret what little I got for my money.
