Academic Flexibility at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: It is fairly easy to know what is expected, but there has been a tiny bit of disorganization as far as grades not being input in a timely fashion. In fairness, this was due to a new system the school instituted during the summer. By all accounts, this is a nonissue at this point. The school cannot really be flexible, as it is a hours program that the state regulates... it would be nice to have more chances to make up lost hours though.

Campus Resources at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: The school has a fantastic aesthetic with a very modern vibe. There is always music playing on the salon floor, nothing is ever broken or in disrepair, and the classrooms all have counters and mirrors conducive to setting up our mannequins during our classroom lessons. We have great tools, a great curriculum that includes both Aveda and Milady textbooks, color charts, dvds, among a few other learning gadgets. The only thing I would change is the no refrigerator for students to store food. This forces many students to eat out, on the upside this does stimulate the economy in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle. The learning leaders we have out on the floor are excellent and experienced stylists whom most of us really look up to. The instructors are personable and outgoing, the Mon-Wed Earth Phase teacher is simply phenomenal at her job, the Water phase instructor is hilarious and often stays late to see to her student's progress. Most of us are really excited to be a part of Aveda's Mission, there is a general sense of community among the students and there are no outsiders -it's a friendly group.

Career Services at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: The school has done a great job networking in the city of Seattle and surrounding areas, so there is a high demand for graduates. Local Aveda salons and studio hire from within the school, which is great for morale.

Tuition & Financial Aid at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: It is fairly high priced and most of us have taken out loans or had our parents take out loans for us to attend. I wish there were more opportunities for cosmetology students to earn scholarships.

Student Body at Gary Manuel Aveda Institute - Seattle: The students here are mostly really nice, but like anywhere else there are a few snotty ones, especially in the phases closest to graduating. It is as if some of them really believe they are "seniors" and the rest of us are freshman in high school, despite the fact that we are all adults. Most students come here to learn and are happy to to be here.

Academic Flexibility at Aveda Institute - Provo: As long as you work hard and are a great student it is so easy! If you are skipping school or doing poorly in academics then there are consequences. People think that hair school is a cake walk but you still have to put effort into it.

Academic Experience at Aveda Institute - San Antonio: Being a student that just graduated from the school I thought I should share my experience that I have had at the school. There are many things wrong with the school. The owner Holly could careless abiut what is going on with the school than coming in and fixing her friens hair for free Shannon the keeper of hours would rather sit in her office ans play on face book then help the students. There are a selecft few of educators who are completely amazing but of course get screwed over by the people jn charger but the other edicators who completely useless get away with everything they want. I had worked but my butt off to graduate before their "BIG MOVE" but still have not received my hours to take my test. And my last thing the front desk staff completely suck except for three of them. The others are just money hungry thre two managers will take guest 45 minutes late but make them as new appointments even if you haven't got a lunch all. Very few people at that school care.

Academic Flexibility at Aveda Institute - San Antonio: If you miss a class day you can not make it up and will lose out on a lot of experience and knowledge

Campus Resources at Aveda Institute - Minneapolis: This is a hands on campus where students are working with hair and skin. Computer use is not needed to finish their curriculum satisfactorily.

Online Courses at Aveda Institute - Minneapolis: Most of the curriculum is hands on and some of the knowledge needed to obtain a cosmetology license is testable for students online. I'm not nervous about any of the online tests because we cover a lot of the licensing information in class, and our information handouts are always available so online tests can be "open book".
