What is your overall opinion of this school?

Being able to attend this school is one step closer to my dreams already. Being able to live in the city of San Francisco after coming from a small suburban town is going to be a big change that I’m nervous for but I know it’s all definitely going to be worth it at the end. Attending an art college that has many different majors is always a good choice because I feel that the professors are more open minded and know how to speak their knowledge into existence which will help out many students along the way. I love the fact that this school has many different locations all around San Francisco and they have a shuttle for the students whose classes aren’t close to where they live. There is also online classes available for anyone who lives out of the way and won’t be able to commute to SF everyday. Going to this school would be a great way of achieving your dreams after you graduate because there’s plenty of graduates who get their dream job from just going to this school. Being in the environment this school has to offer, will not only change you, but it will change your perspectives in life and make you see the bigger picture of things by opening your mind. This college has so many opportunities for each and every student and it will definitely change lives attending here and being at an art school that has so much to offer.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, I am happy with my choice of university. It relies specifically upon those interested in art. From animation to photography and all in between. This university has many different options and gives students with talent in these areas a place of their own to build their knowledge and seek opportunity in higher, well-known companies.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my school so far, I am attending classes during the summer and I am an online student but there are groups that involve online and local students which is amazing. I am able to contact my teachers on the weekends if I need to and my adviser is quite helpful. My fellow classmates are charming and engaging. I honestly can't wait to move and become a local student!

I love that we get to truly focus on what we major in. The teachers are very compassionate and caring about how serious we take the courses. They are very involved in making sure we pass the class and are gaining the knowledge we need to move on.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's actually a good school but the administration needs work. I do wish they would offer more scholarships, especially for upperclassmen. And I just wish it wasn't so expensive but you gotta deal with it. The quality of the education I've received was very good, I like having the shuttles to get around, I like having the option, as a non-housed student, to purchase meal plans and Knight Kash. I like the library but wish the hours were longer and I wish the school had an area for 24-hour study (like a lot of other universities). I like the clubs and campus life. I like the location of the campus. Overall, it's decent. The one thing I would really recommend is to make sure this is the place for you. It's NOT a traditional 4-year, it's a FOR-PROFIT TRADE school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoyed attending Academy of Art University, but I wasn't necessarily too fond of the staff and even some of the teachers. Other students were cool though; especially meeting international students! I also loved the scenery; San Francisco is a very beautiful place but there were more negatives about attending than positives. The workload even during first semester borderline leaves no time for students to have private lives which was also bothersome. The food was hardly ever cooked which led to stomachaches and eventually, I stopped eating the food because of it. I was frequently bothered one of the staffs in my dorm towards the end of my term. She assumed I didn't live in the dorm because "she'd never seen me"; even though she was a new staff member. That made no sense. Another thing to beware of is which dorm you decide to live in. I lived in downtown San Francisco which made it impossible to sleep at night because of people screaming outside all night. There was also no ACs; only heaters. The school is also very pricey so keep that in mind no matter how cheap it seems on the surface. Apart from that, good luck if you're on the way to Academy of Art University!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Academy of Art university!! I take classes online and it's perfect for me. The teachers are extremely active and it feels less like an "online class" and more like an actual class you happen to take online. For me, there's a huge difference!!!

It is a very interesting school and allows your creativity to flow all over the campus. The teachers and students encourage you to show your work in new areas of the campus and city of San Francisco. Allows many career paths to what you want to continue as your major.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Academy of Art University puts there students first and that is such a different but good different feeling. For once its finally nice to have a school on your side who cares about your academics and not your money. Also form the moment you apply regardless if you are accepted or not a representative is assigned to you and immediately gets into contact with you. From there they contact you once a week to help with any questions or financial aid troubles. The Academy of Art University really cares about the students and there learning and that is why I feel confident in saying I highly recommend this school to anyone interested in perusing an art degree!
