I Love The Fact That AIU Truly Cares For Their Students. They Know That Most Students Have Full Time Jobs, Children & Personal Lives. They Make It Manageable For Students To Achieve Academic Success While Having To Tend To Their Personal Lives. The Instructors Truly Help You With What You Don't Understand & Give You Easier Ways To Understand & Complete Assignments.

The review created for American International College was very racist and inaccurate to say the least. Nevertheless I have to say that with "a school that sit in the middle of a predominantly African American neighborhood", "well we po folk sho do appreciate how you jus mozied on down her and insulted us jus so"... I would have whom ever had the responsibility of writing this review has created a grossly false depiction of a wonderful, small, private, modern, classic college neselled in the comforts of an historic community that's not only protective but welcoming. With wonderful professors, wonderful dining commons, beautiful fire place study cove in the winter and a beach blast in the spring. A president who plays catch daily with every student and faculty member that walks by whether they want to or not just to put a smile on someone's face. Smiling Springfield City police officers employed in campus for everyone's saftey daily 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Constant physical activities and destressor quad celebrations just to help students prepare or debrief.

American International College as many other colleges has its imperfections, however to put a school doe because of the area in which it's in and to judge the area and the people in that area by the color of their skin is quite out dated and as my statistics show, have no effect on our Interpersonal Race Relations and How They Effect the Community.

Sincerely,

Disappointed
I had two separate roommates in my first semester. My first roommate made me feel uncomfortable and not welcome. I helped provide her with food, comfort, and necessities she didn't have (microwave, I let her use my laptop, etc). She only became more rude, and blasted music whenever I was studying. She would kept all the lights on to study at two in the morning and I needed to sleep. The process to remove myself from the situation was very overwhelming and long, and I was expected to live with her after she made it clear to the residence director that she wasn't willing to make a compromise. My second roommate was even worse. She allowed her friends to walk in the room whenever I was studying and they would begin drinking alcohol and making noise. This has happened at two in the morning when I was trying to sleep, as well. The RAs in the building didn't do a lot to help, and I finally went to the Associate Dean to discuss that I wasn't ever able to sleep or be able to study in my room anymore. He finally moved me into a single. It was such a painful process, and there are a lot of girls in this building that don't understand that they are living with other people. Otherwise, the dorm quality is well.
