The Art Institute of California - San Francisco, a campus of Argosy University Reviews

It is okay so far. One problem is their financial aid officers. It seems they are heavily flustered and confused. They the process really complicated and hard to understand until they break it down. Sometimes it seems like they don't understand what one says. Some officers mix up the words. Communications is needed. Other parts the school is good.
Review The Art Institute of California - San Francisco, a campus of Argosy University
We have a small campus between two buildings in UN Plaza in San Francisco. Both buildings serve a variety of students in different majors, though one serves mostly computer/graphic design type students and the other serves mostly those students who work with tangible items such as food, fabrics, art supplies, etc.

AI doesn't have sports available but there are clubs. Our Student Affairs department is very active in planning activities for students outside of class. The library is well-stocked. We have two lounges for students' use, one in the basement of one of the buildings. Both are furnished with couches, tables, chairs, microwaves, vending machines, and more.

As for campus aesthetics, well, it's in UN Plaza. On the one hand, it's a historical site and that's neat. On the other hand, it's UN Plaza. If you know anything about that location, you know what I'm talking about. If not...just do a search for San Francisco UN Plaza and look at some pics. Some will give you a clue as to what I'm referring to.

Overall, though, this school is more than satisfactory thus far.
I really feel as if I can thrive as a person. The teachers truely care about our learning and take their time when explaining things. I love that everyone including upper class man and incoming freshmen have equal opportunities. No one is singeled out and you can really focus because the school is mainly a hands on learning place.
