2 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The schools hours are really blocky and its tough to get your classes to work out on certain time slots. Ive had to completely base my work hours off of my school hours.

1 College Freshman

Career Services: Career center is small and maybe has one person working there, job prospects are only good because of where the school is located. but anyone with these skills could go get a job here. I dont believe having AIS on your certificate makes you any better of a canidate

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Class sizes are roughly 24 students in computer oriented classes and 20 for hands on no computer classes. Professors are often way too busy during class to work with you for more than 3 minutes. Your classes are huge and you are very much on your own when it comes to gaining knowledge. You could learn a lot of their instructions from digital tutors.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The recruitment on campus is horrible, AIS pumps out too many students. This school might as well just be preparing you to go back to another art school.

2 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Being in Media arts and Animation you expect a lot of hands on learning with many study classes such as anatomy or figure. You take these pretty on and they are nice but you will see a lot more digital classes. When you go in for animation expect to be focused heavily on 3d because that is where they through you in. My second quarter already had a modeling class but I had not seen a single study course on bettering your ability to draw on paper. They give you a rough class on perspective but past that you better hope you already came with skill.

But they don't know if you did or not because there is no art required to be seen on your application and my admissions officer didn't even care to see any art

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: AIS Looks great when you come in for your application. You are greated like a good friend and shown around. Your admissions guide will give you a speel on the greatness of the school but coming into your second quarter you will find out really fast you are on your own. Teachers are often way too busy trying to get everything up in the air with 25 students asking every question possible. Most of the time by hour 3 of your class everyone is too tired to care and the teacher still hasn't made it to help you. They offer office hours which is nice but if you work a full time job to pay off the massive debt you have you will not have time to make it in to their specific hours.

Clubs are few and small, with the size of the school you would expect a large amount of clubs and they sure set it to look that way but when you actually go looking for clubs there is hardly anything available let alone anything at a convenient time.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: In my opinion school comes first as well as learning, you should always attend to that first. Classes are flexible, the teachers know that students are busy trying to find ways to pay for college.

Overall Experience: The students makes the school unique, theres no reason for school if students weren't in it. Theres a variety of opinions and ideas that are tossed around constantly even to the teachers.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are great teachers at the school who are funny and friendly. You have to interact with the teachers in class by participating so they know who you are on a personal level. I love that each teacher shares there likes and dislikes with everyone, if a teacher thought the classroom wasn't fit for the class that teacher would get the classroom changed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Internships and jobs are huge standards at my school, during portfolio showcase teachers encourage students to go and find the path they really want to take. Thats where employers come to find an employee, you can also talk to those students to learn more about job opportunities and internships. I haven't learned much about the options for them but its easy to learn.

4 College Freshman

Online Courses: A lot of teachers don't want to use new technology because they don't know how, more advancements can be made if a lot more people used these advanced recourses. The teachers how do use them and know how to makes the class fun and easier to get by.

5 College Freshman

Student Body: Interacting with different races may be the only problem students face if we don't completely understand the other nationality but we/me gives that person time and tries to understand. When you think about it, if you cant understand them then they cant really understand you much either. Patience and teamwork takes time but the outcome is always great.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: This is my first year of college and everything is new to me, they keep every payment simple. If you need any information there are two areas by the exit so get as much information you need. They faculty also persuades students to use any recourses were paying throughout each quarter.

5 College Freshman

Career Services: The school has banners around the room and successful individuals from different areas including there daily talks around different times of the day. They always try to teach you not only about learning but outside of what goes on in school. Our loans, scholarships, grants, and payments for school are important. Our careers after collage from the first day we graduate until we retire is important. Including us, the students, were important and the staff pushes us as far as we can go.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I believe my major has the best well rounded group of students, we know art in a wide range of views. Since we all know that each person has the ability, after we find out about that person and what they actually can do, we work together on projects or study groups.

4 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Learning how to sign up for classes each quarter was difficult in the beginning but once you learn how and choose classes on time you're able to get whats best for you. Choosing what you need deals with knowing more about yourself, when you find out what that is the school will have exactly what you need.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The campus tutors are always there to help when you need them even in new class periods, there in classes to help out students when they first start there major. Library assistance is a quick and easy process if you wanted to rent a product. Every student is friendly and the teachers keep us in groups interacting with each other, great student interactions helps classes advance. Many teachers want there students to learn and everyone knows the best way for a person to learn is to be comfortable in the environment. Students are able to talk to the next student if needed, theres only one teacher in a classroom, theres only a few tutors, but theres plenty of students to help each other.

4 College Senior

Student Body: Basically it is a bad system but sometimes there is that one person who doesnt like how things are ran

4 College Senior

Career Services: The programs for post grad and quality with helping is great because everyone is willing to help you financially as well as everything else its a great school.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: Its interesting because your mixed in with other departments and you learn more tat way and you make friends while being in class together and everyone is connected at the school at one point.

4 College Senior

Academic Experience: The academics are mixed because their are so many different in way of offering tutoring as well as much as the faculty is working wit each student to help them do the best they do.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources: The Art institute of Seattle is probably the best chose i made in starting here because you basically became family by the time you start taking classes together with the faculty and other students
