I transferred to AIC because I was lookingQuite BrightNursing
I transferred to AIC because I was looking for a small college. The classes are great and I absol love my professors! They're always there to help when needed and they don't just care about your grade they care about you as a person. Now here's the bad dorm halls are very crappy coming from another school. We often didn't have heat or hot water during the winter & paying almost $46,000 a year that's something we should've had no problems with. The food in the dining commons is disgusting! The students goes both ways some are great people and excellent friends and then there are others?the not so great friends that are really fake and petty. Bit of advice look into a different school if that's an option and if you're set on going to AIC make a variety of friends and at,east join one club don't just stick to one group of friends because they might not be the right fit. AIC is great for the academic life you'll come out of college with everything you need but if you want a better social life look other places. We don't really have a lot to do around us or parties because there is so much crime in the city. :(

I payed way too much money for theQuite BrightEconomics
I payed way too much money for the quality of education, while most of the student body went for a much lower cost. I made the best of it by getting strait A's both semesters I attended, but I felt that the professors made the classes easier for the majority of the students. In most classes the professors couldn't even follow their syllabus due to the unprepared students. Most students did not belong in college and they were not prepared for a college curriculum. It was frustrating to say the least.

As for on campus living it was an absolute disgrace; bathrooms were always dirty and vandalized, the actual rooms were crowded (three to a room for most), and the building I lived in (Hines Hall) is in dire need of a renovation, or better yet it should be torn down. I am transferring to a different university, and I would recommend not even giving this place a chance.

It's too much money.Super BrilliantHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
It's too much money. I pay almost full price,while it seems like everyone else pays nothing. If you are from Springfield, you go for free, pretty much. They got rid of my major (education) after I completed two year's worth of credits. They told me I could stay an extra two years and get my masters...for an extra $60,000. I am going to be about $100,000 in debt, and I won't even have a certificate in the field that I wanted.

Most of the people only care about parties and having sex with anyone they come in contact with.However, I have met some great people (most from an off campus job) in Springfield. My professors are great. Unfortunately, I feel like they have to dumb down the work because students refuse to read. The campus life could be great. There are many events around, but few people go, which causes them to appear fewer times during the year. The only campus events people seem to care about are ones that are until 3am and will let you get drunk and hook up.
