Academic Experience: Being in the culinary arts program at the Cincinnati branch is good but it could be better I wish there was more kitchens and nicer equipment and appliances. Compared to the other Art Institute locations the Cincinnati branch is so much smaller. The experience and the things I've learned there so far is absolutely incredible and the teachers are an inspiration to me. The homework isn't hard and it just about the same amount as any other class. Also the Chefs and instructors do a great job of letting us know and helping us to get work experience and job opportunities in the area.

Overall Experience: I think it is a really awesome school there have been times where I felt lost and it seems like some of the people that work there are like that with a lot of things and that's not very helpful. But the teachers there are very helpful and understanding and they are there to help us succeed and give us a good experience.

Tuition & Financial Aid: I think that they could be more tuition friendly its 48000 dollars just for my Associates it has been hard for me because I didnt have enough to cover the rest of my classes so I am paying out of pocket 2 grand to complete my degree

5 College Junior

Career Services: They have employment placement help they work through the year to find work for you in your chosen field

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Classes are not hard Instructors work with you and not against you

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: Class scheduling is done in two ways your advisor does your first quarter then another advisor does your second quarter schedule after that your instructors set your courses if you should have issues they will work with your schedule

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: For an Art school it has the things that a student would need to succeed the teachers and staff are available for much of the day sometimes even later in the evening they work with schedule to help you find the classes that fit you they have fun things like lip sync battles and even donught breakfasts

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: They have classes at all different times, so i can make them work around my personal schedule. However, I've heard not so great things about the times that culinary classes are offered.

Overall Experience: Its a decent school, it has nice opportunities, but there are better school out there. I feel like my degree may be ridiculed because its from this particular school. I hope future employers wont laugh at my degree.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school has a decent recruiting team. They helped me every step of the way and answered any questions I had. We also have job fairs and an opportunity for internships later in the year

4 College Freshman

Student Body: The students here are fun and most take their classes seriously. There is a wide variety of ethnic groups, religions, sexual preferences, etc, here. Everyone is treated equally here.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: They're really helpful, but I'm a firm believer that college tuition should not be so expensive.

4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Workload isn't bad, kind of what you'd expect from any college.

Campus Resources: Wish we had a cafeteria. Not just vending machines.

Campus Resources: There are no athletic centers, unless you count the ones at the apartment complexes that count as housing, but good luck getting a pass for the gyms. The student center is small with maybe ten computers in a room smaller than any classroom in the school. Sometimes the printer works. Sometimes it has paper. Sometimes it has ink. Sometimes there's a stapler. The library's okay. Yes, there are books, but I wish there was a larger selection. If you check out a movie, they expect you to return it the next day, which is ridiculous to me considering there are film majors who need to study films, which would take more than a couple hours in a day. Also, if you plan on taking a quarter off and you go through all the necessary signage and paperwork, expect your access to the library to be cut off during that quarter, no matter how much time there is left in the quarter and no matter how much you paid to have access to it (access to the library is included in my tuition for the quarter, right? Wrong, I guess). Campus activities are always during the week, which is frustrating because most of them take place during one of your classes. It would make more sense to me to have them on Saturdays when no one has classes. Despite that, the activities are usually fun. There's always free food involved somehow. As said before, the outside looks nice, including the hallways, but after awhile you realize how small and inconvenient everything is.

Online Courses: I attempted to take an online course but quickly replaced it with another class (on campus) once I realized how complicated it was to do anything. The interface was very confusing, and instead of getting a tutorial about what's where and how to do things in general, I was left to figure things out on my own. The wording of my professor was also confusing so I became frustrated at the fact that I couldn't just ask them right then and there what the meaning of something was. Instead, I would have had to send them a message and wait minutes if not hours for a response. I didn't have that kind of time considering an assignment was due that day (the first day), and since I didn't have the time for it, I gave up that class for an on-campus one.

Academic Flexibility: You would think that transferring credits between The Art Institutes would be simple, but it's not. Despite all being Art Institutes, you lose some classes when transferring. I found this out when I transferred from the Art Institute in Miami to the one in Cincinnati. For whatever reason, I also had a horrible time trying to get the school in Cincinnati to accept my AP English credit as well. Every quarter it would come up as a problem because the people didn't do what they said they would, which was take care of it. The classes vary in difficulty but one main problem is the professors' dedication to the class. Some take their job very seriously (too seriously most of the time), while others don't care too much and leave you wondering if they're teaching the right thing. Recently, I had a professor tell my classmates and I that he was offered to teach the class a few days before the quarter started and that he had to do research on what the class was about. Why would you take the job of teaching a class you know nothing about, and why would the school offer it to you? One of the more frustrating things is registering for classes. Not every class is offered every quarter, and it's become a problem for me because I'm going to be graduating soon (June 2015), and one of the classes I need to take hasn't been offered for the past three quarters. Well when is it going to be offered? I don't want to spend a quarter taking one class just so you can get more money out of me. Spark a conversation with any student who's been there at least a quarter, and every one will start complaining. There's a reason for that. It's not just me, I promise.

Tuition & Financial Aid: AIOHC's tuition is about $30,000 a year, which is a little more than it should be in my opinion because the school reminds me of a community college more than a university. The campus consists only of a building it shares with other businesses, and it only has two floors of that building. The school's housing consists of three different apartment complexes that are all about 10-15 minutes away from the school - which is fine if you have a vehicle. If you don't, you must rely on the school's shuttle system, which is iffy in general because sometimes the shuttle shows up earlier than it should (resulting in it leaving earlier than it should), or it just doesn't show up at all. The shuttle usually runs about every hour, except on the weekend when it only makes about four stops to each apartment complex, which can be really frustrating when you only need to make a quick stop at the school. I've been at this school since 2012, and every day since 2013 I've been unsatisfied with the school's use of our (the students') money. We pay all this money for what? The new big screens in the hallways and the new revolving door? That's what we get instead of teachers that care, new computers, cheaper costs, and better supplies. In fact, multiple times a year students hear about how this faculty member and that one are leaving the school. Since I've been here, the school has had three different presidents. Now why is that? If you ask me, the Art Institutes are all about getting your money - that's it. They don't actually care about your education. They make the outside look pretty with the displayed work, nicely colored walls, big screens, and clean look in general, but once you actually get in the school, you realize how much of a sham they are, and yes, it is sad. I was applying for loans just a couple weeks ago, and one of the forms stated that my school's graduation rate was 28%. I have more to say but I only have 2000 characters. Like I tell everyone else, don't come here.
