If there is anything I am learning about the art world at SAIC, its everything! Experimenting in different mediums and art types is daily routine. Film, sculpture, plaster, and sound are just a few things that I have dipped my hands into since being here. The best thing is that I can take all different types of classes and never have to define a major. For example, I can take shoe design and figure drawing. I create my own plan and degree based on what I am interested in and want to create. The main thing I am learning though,...

    Easy to find a place you feel comfortable in. Classes and activities for anything you could want. Unlimited opportunities if you work for them and even if you don't, opportunities present themselves to you simply because you have the school title attached to your name.

    This school will charge you a fortune, but forget about any help in the future. Professors will say they'll write letters to support your attempts to find work, but they won't follow through. The school is interested in getting tuition only, and that's what students are to them--cash cows.

    A very open and welcoming community with lots of engaging activities and things to do. In the best location for an art school - the city is nothing but inspiring. The teachers are the best I have experienced and are endlessly trying to help you achieve the goal you have set for yourself.

    A good school with small classes. Instructors work in the field, and are not just book knowledgeable.

    From what I've seen from visiting and from what I've read online, I've come to the consensus that this is the place to be for an art education, which is why I'm working so hard to get there.

    This college is my dream school, it has everything I ever would want in an art school. One of my dreams of becoming a successful artist is to live in a loft apartment in a large urban city. This institute gives you a taste of your future dreams and success.

    I would give my school a nine out of ten. My reason for this is because of financial aid. They are just a little off to me but other than that the school is Amazing.

    SAIC gets a 7/10 from me because it has no real campus experience and the cafeterias have no variety. Room, board, and facilities are lovely. Professors and lecturers are well-traveled and more than qualified.

    The school is a good school but charge to much to attend. However, coming to the art institute you meet a lot of people and meet connects. Overall I rate this school 8.0 because of the structure of the school
