It's a very unique program around game design! It is unique from most computer programs and is focused on the aspect of creating games and bringing stories to people that actually care about what the game designers have to say. Workload is very challenging and not simple. Although it's focused around creating video games, it isnt as "fun and games" as you may think. From what I see in regards to job oppurtunities, many options are opening up every day. However most of these options are thoroughly free-lance work, since it is partially an "Art major".

The people who work here know what they are doing initially. Although there is a small team, they manage to do what they need to do, and they are fully willing to help you accomplish what you need to accomplish. The faculty all have a passion for what they do, and everything that they do influences you as well as push you forward to accomplish a higher standard then what you would normally strive for. In regards to my experience here at Art Institute of Philly, I'd say it has been a positive one. Since it is in the heart of central Philadelphia, I get to enjoy the city life as well as meet tons of people that I can immediately make friends with. I have yet to meet someone who I had any sort of problem with, and the memories I made here will last a lifetime. Now although I'm only a sophomore here at the Art Institute, I know it's internships are very professional and well worth the time, and I can't wait til I start my own!

The tuition here is great! I feel like I am learning a lot during my stay here at the Art Institute of Philly. Not to mention all the advances I am making in my major. I am learning tons of different types of things I can use towards the future in my career, not to mention I also maintain a friendly and mutual relationship with many of my professors here, which is hard to say about other colleges.

However the Financial Aid process isn't as strong as everything else in my school. It usually takes extremely long for me to come up with answers to simple questions that I may have. But I believe that although the process is long and harsh, I am making some value in regards to the tuition i receive and the amount that it costs.
