I started attending this school in the Summer Quarter of 2011 and graduated December of 2014. Let me just say, that as the quarters went on, this school not only got worse from a management point of view, but also from a student point of view. If I had the chance to go back and do it all over again, I WOULD NOT choose this school. Not only are some of the Department chairs and teachers down right rude, but the Administration, Registrar and Career Services people are absolutely useless as well. There are maybe a handful of teachers that I would go back to see, other than that - I will NEVER step foot in this school again. Oh, and you know how everyone tells you that Ai is a good school to be associated with? Yeah, that's a load of you know what. The students that they are pumping out of there are downright rude, obnoxious little babies who don't understand what it is like to work and go to school and have responsibilities. They make those of us who know what we are doing look bad. If you ever need to call the school for any reason, you'll find out that your sh** out of luck. NOBODY knows how to answer the phone and if they do, they are rude and condescending - way to be "all about the students." This school only cares about your money, they do not care about anything else. Certain teachers who are there because they believe in the students (you know who you are) I am sorry for this negative post, because it was those few teachers that made an impact on who I am today - NOT Ai.
I been attending The art institute of fort lauderdale for nearly 5 years. I will finally finish my bachelors in media arts and animation this winter of 2014. I want to write a "fair" review since being here for this long has taught me a lot about how much a school can change. You will find unprofessional teachers, and professional teachers. unfriendly staff and friendly staff. Although the school does it's best to keep their systems updated, and they do a pretty good job, they make up with a loss of a structured program. My program has made so many changes in the past 5 years, I couldnt keep up with what direction I was supposed to take in my career. It took three years of research, self discovery, and TUTORIALS to figure out what I wanted to do for my DEMO REEL. The best thing the program has to offer is the access to DIGITAL TUTORS, and that is SAD. I was lucky in the first two years to be surrounded by intelligent teachers who were actually dedicated to their jobs. I feel sorry for the new generation of freshmen who will never understand what this school was years ago.

I have been greatly disappointed with the quality of the professors, curriculum and campus of The Art Institute. For the price of the school, it has definatley not been worth it financially. Iam only staying because I have no other school option that offers a bachelors in interior design in my area. I can't wait to be over with this school who has put their students as last priority.
