I am taking classes online, so I am not on a physical campus. However with my previous college it was one issue after another, customer service was absolutely sorry, and I'm still having trouble getting my transcripts. The staff at Art Institute have gone above and beyond expectations to help me with the transfer process, and they even waived my enrollment fee to help me get started. They call and/or e-mail me regularly to check on me, see if I have any questions or concerns, and make sure everything is going well. Instructors are very helpful and respond promptly to any questions. The virtual campus works great with no issues so far. There are a wide variety of groups, clubs, and events available to students. When I was at my previous college I couldn't stand the thought of taking classes or having to contact the school, because they either wouldn't respond or they were very rude. This school has helped me to be excited about going to college and I look forward to my classes each week. I love this school!

I love the classes, but often times the teachers are talking to us as though we should have already learned the things we are supposed to learn in the class that they're teaching! I've run into several major fees, nearly $500 worth, every month. I am currently behind on my tuition payments because scholarships do not normally recognize online schooling, and the Academic Counselor that I have been dealing with only calls to nag about me not having the money, not to help me pay for college or find ways for me to pay for it. I can't wait to be done with this college, honestly. It's flexible, sure, and I can pretty much go anywhere with a computer and internet, but get a class that has something extra you have to download and you're screwed. The college offers to buy the student the required software for the college courses that he/she intends to take, but the money actually just goes back into your tuition, they didn't pay for a thing! I better be the best game developer out there once I'm done with this.

The school allows for the most student potential by giving the student the most amount of time for research and applied knowledge. Instead of wasting time commuting and listening to hours of lectures, there are assigned readings and web page lectures that cover the material extensively. There is also the ability to check into other programs the school offers, including course guidelines, recommended books for classes, and topics that are covered for those who want to do extra reading in a particular field. The faculty is willing to work with students one on one when necessary and some have even helped me with outside goals such as scholarships and entering the Academy Awards!
