The American University of Paris has a lot of amazing, awesome professors—or at least enough to outweigh the dull ones. Almost any University student can spring into a story about one really cool professor who was too zany for words. On the flip side, there are always the "horror stories" floating around about certain professors who only went into teaching to make students' lives miserable. It really depends on personal experience that comes with actually taking their classes. One day, someone might discover that professors have different moods for different semesters or that they really do have a dartboard with their most troublesome student's photo ID attached to it.
For the most part, the workload of AUP is manageable, even though procrastination is a trait shared by most of the University (some professors included). There are always some majors that take a more traditional standpoint, while others can be really interesting and innovative. One thing's for sure: when all the classes start piling on work, it is always broadcast in Facebook statuses as ". . .working" and "four hours later and still working" until it ends up as "two days without sleep—yay caffeine!"
