The Art Institute of Seattle Reviews

The Art Institute of Seattle was my first choice to pursue my dream of becoming a film director. Although reviews were not entirely favorable, I looked at what they offered compared to the couple smaller schools in the area and thought my education would benefit most from going here. Now, with just over a year left until I graduate, the experience has been mostly positive. What started out as a naïve approach to college (beginning it in my early 20s) has blossomed into a passionate conquest to not only become a great student but to have great expectations of academia. The Art Institute of Seattle has been working hard ever since my first quarter to improve it's ways in the form of different teachers, ethics, curriculums, and appeal. I feel proud to have worked through not the best experience to help shape something better for the next students. I hope The Art Institute of Seattle becomes a reputable school in the Seattle area.

The Art Institute of Seattle is not for everybody. It is a great place to study if you like smaller class environment, and know your niche. It is a technical school after all.
Every school has their pros & cons, and here are my two cents:
Pros: small class sizes, students from diverse cultures, school schedule structure is quarterly, great library resources.
Cons: parking, cafeteria is more like a deli.
It's only my second quarter, therefore, more to discovery later.
A lot of the work that graduated or near-graduated students have created have been REALLY impressive, in my opinion. Especially since I've seen some of the work of some of the students that are in their first few quarters have produced--there's a lot of growth over the few years that students stay here, and that's what I'm looking forward to. Most of the teachers and employees on campus are very kind and easy to talk to. The Dean is very easy to talk to, too, and sometimes we have events where the Dean brings pizza and students can eat and ask questions about anything. So far, whenever I've had questions, I can usually find someone to answer it pretty easily, and if not then I can find someone who can lead me in the right direction.
