" I can only speak for the Wed Design & New Media department. The program allows you to explore many areas of design to better help you find what you love. The instructors are amazing and they work in their current fields, giving you the opportunity to make great contacts. The WNM building is in a great location. I always feel safe. I would say that parking around the area is not great. "

" AAU have great Labs for Art student. They don’t sell foods in campus, but there are lots of places to eat because it is located in downtown SF. Thus it can be rase living expense also. Anyway, I love my school. Especially if you want to make portfolio for real field, AAU is great choice. "

" The professors and students are great. However, the school is not recommended because it gauges you for every penny. They had the audacity to raise tuition in June during COVID-19. They also made us sign a waiver upon returning for Fall semester after COVID stating that we wouldn't try to get our money back if we got sent home for the semester. "

" AAU needs better faculties in order to teach the students. Also, it is too easy to get into the school which caused the quality of students to become very bad. Otherwise, AAU has a good range of classes and plenty of electives to choose from. "

" My department was a long standing one and therefore well established. My experience with the school was overall positive. The curriculum has been well thought out. Other classes that I have take in other, newer departments are still in the flux of change and need to ironed out. "
