            The greatest experience I never thought I would love!I love the teachers, I love the academic advisors who are on staff. I can't pick just one professor, because there were so many who pulled things out of me that I didn't know that I could do.l started college very late in my life scared to death that I would fail, but aionline changed every thing for me and my future. Thank you Aionline for every thing and so much more.

            Great faculty!The classes flow very well, the faculty is very helpful and kind, and you can take as many or as few classes as you'd like at a time. It is a bit pricey, depending on what equipment you will need for your major, but it's worth it with all the information that is given to you! I'm proud when I tell people that I am attending the Art Institutes!
