This school is a piece of shit.AverageOther
This school is a piece of shit. I was a fashion styling major, and if you're going for styling just DONT. Its a waste of your time and money. The school is just out to get your money and really does not care about anything else. The dorms are absolutely disgusting and the food is horrible. The fashion styling program is horrible. You only take ONE class that is relevent to your major. So basically you're waisting so much money on other classes where you will NEVER use the content. Just save yourself.

If you decide to attend this money suckingArt & Design Department
If you decide to attend this money sucking vampire, please consider the following:

- the teachers are crazy good, and nice
- registration, student advisers and the rest of the faculty are incompetent.
- they will drop you from classes for no reason at all.
- they will try to shove unnecessary classes down your throat and collect extra "fees"- the system is so corrupt, they cut the funds for teachers and invest more money in advertising.

Although the price is high it is wellSuper BrilliantFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Although the price is high it is well worth it if you apply yourself. The amount of knowledge to be gained is limited only by how much effort you put in. Yes, there are occasional instructors who are not so eager to help- but will if you ask. If taking online classes, be prepared to check in every day in order to keep up on discussions. All in all I am thrilled I decided to join AAU.
