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.

My experience here at American International College has been up and down. When I began, I began as an excited OT (occupational therapy) student with such excitement and dreams that had already been shattered10 years ago. Nevertheless, I was ready to take that step head on full force and after being out of school (college that was at the time) fifteen years already, there were many things I had to catch up to without help getting there and that was a difficult experience. But then realising that the college itself was split into two different entities, a medical school and a college of psychology, sociology, business, and criminal justice that were a part aof and entire different " school". That I didn't like at all, because the med program, even though I did very well academically until my spirit began to be broken, behind the differences in the care and welfare some professors on that side of campus take in the quality of care the students received as the professors do where I am now graduatin from I would have had a better start and would have never dropped my GPA behind foolishness of those still lost in a century of hate. Overall now that I'm graduating in May and have completed my course load as Psychology major with a minor in Sociology, I love American International College so much that I will be returning in the fall for myMasters/ Doctorates in Clinical Psychology with an interest in Forensics.
