Campus resources are pretty descent. The computer labs are almost always open and offer the latest video editing for students to use. The equipment cage also allows students to rent equipment for free and use it for school work off of school grounds. The faculty are very friendly and encourage the students to make the best of their time at that school.

Many students at the school are passionate about film and cinematography. Many students even purchase their own film equipment (admittedly its very cheap/"college student budget" equipment) after a few terms. The only negative thing is that, around the end of the term students are ready to get it over with so they can go on vacation.

The computer labs are great. They have the latest software for video editing, after effects, photoshop, etc. However, the sound studio leaves something to be desired in that the recording booth is no isolated like it should be. Also, the new update of Avid has come long after enrollment and therefore students previously taught on Final Cut or Adobe must continue on their assigned curriculum. However, the school promises to transition all students onto Avid during their next scheduled class.

For the most part, the teachers and administration give their time and effort to help you. They are very flexible and allow you time to get the work done. However, some classes seem a bit redundant as the curriculum is repetitive between classes. Thus, their is frustration as to the number of classes required to complete the degree program.

Most of the students are very nice and talkative. I've been invited to many gatherings already and I have made quite a few acquantinces. I went into this and my number one priority was and still is to learn, but I can see myself becoming friends with a lot of the students at the art institutes in time because they are pretty friendly. There are always a few stuck up people anywhere you go, but all of my classmates are really cool down to earth people, which has made my experience great.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
So far I have had a really good experience working with the people at the Art Institutes. Of course its going to be pricey, it's an art school, but the financial aid office made it possible for me to start college without having to make huge payments but I'm also getting the education I wanted. The class I am in is very intimate, 15 people or so and its great. The teacher is very nice and spends lots of time critiquing your work and giving you feedback. And you can't learn without feedback. :)

At my school, we have alot of intelligent hard working students with bright futures. Many of us work part time jobs, get involved in extra curricular activities, and do our best to help out. Education is taken seriously, we do all we can to pressue our goals.

I have not taken any online classes, though they are offered.

I rate the photography program as a B. I believe that the we should have more resources and better equiptment.

Tuition & Financial Aid:
The reason I rate this aspect of the school a c- is because I believe that the tuition is too much. In the photography department there is a lot of broken equiptment. We don't even have the luxery of learning different processes such as film. I believe that for the money we are paying, we should have more resources.

Very Widely Diverse – The student body of my campus is made up of all different types of people. We have students of many different ethnicities. Also, there are many students who work full-time, but there are others that don't need to work. We have students who practice all different religions. There is no conformity to my school. We are free to express our own beliefs and personalities.

Excellent One on One Time – My professors are very involved with the students. They help out in any way possible. If needed, the professors will happily schedule time with you to go over anything you are having problems with. The head of my department will happily help set your schedule so that you get the classes that are needed.

Living My Dream – I have dreamt of attending school here for a long time. I am very happy that I was accepted. I am bery grateful to be working closely with some already established photographers who want to see me succeed and are always there to offer advice. I am proud to be an AI student.

Great Internet Access – My campus had three computer labs that we have access to, plus some computers in the library. The school also has accounts with great search engines to help the students.

Close Quarters, High Price – I Found that the apartments in Lenexa to be rather expensive. I am currently looking to find a cheap one bedroom apartment. Something close to the school, they offer an apartment for about $500 a month, but it is a two bedroom, two bathroom apartment shared with three other people. That's just to many people in such a little area.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
