it's getting down to the wire... I graduate with my BFA in visual communication in less than a month. I just finished my senior project, but I was kind of disappointed in the class... there wasn't a lot of feedback on anything and then I ended up getting a 'c' on my overall finished project but no reason as to why. Oh well. Right now I'm considering going for my master's in international business. It kind of depends on what kind of financial aid I can get though... maybe see if I can get some grants this time around. Anyway, hope all of you are doing well in your classes and looking forward to winter break! ;p

As a student I am tired of paying these ridiculous prices for textbooks. Spending over 500 dollars for textbooks is really frustrating, so I have created a site for all students at all universities and wanted to pass it to the AIU community so they can find people at their own university with the books they need. This site is fairly new but if people from the AIU community post their books for free on www.acollegetrade.com we all can save some dollars. I am tired of paying for books so I am trying my best to accommodate myself and others. Take care and I hope the semester is going well.

Hi, I was recently accepted to AIU and I’m totally excited. I will be starting my associates in business administration this November. I was wondering, for those that have completed a degree at AIU Online, does it say "online" on the degree?

Hi all,

I'm starting at AIU this coming January as a masters student in the education program. I was recently accepted and have only just started to hear back from financial aid regarding the loans I've applied for. I saw this little community and thought I'd join and say hello. How are you all and what are you all studying? :)

Hey all...

My name is Andrew and I am 20 years old. I currently attend L.A. Valley college, but would like to move two steps ahead with my life, and I feel that this is the right way. I recently spoke to an admissions officer, and she told me about the AIU system, and how things would work if I were to attend this school. It seems to be a great investment, but here's the problem. I have a friend, who knows about me wanting to attend an online university, and she is completely against it, telling me that I have to have the complete college experience and whatnot, that i have to interact with the many people that will be attending with me, and so on. My opinion is that I really do not need to have >30 other people surrounding me talking about nonsense amongst each other while I'm trying to learn. I have friends, and I am perfectly content with them.

But that's enough of me ranting. From what I see on here, it's been somewhat positive, but I'd like to know how your first class went, how easy/hard it was adapting to this system, and most importantly, how did it affect your life outside of school (job/friends/free time/etc)? Thanks alot.

There are two types of teachers in the world...

One type is the kind heartedone. The one who wants to make sure and will almost do anything to help you.And the one that will cry when you graduate, almost like your parent.

The other is the one who doesn't want to be there or is too hurry to finish up class so he/she can go do something else important. I had one of these yesterday...

my Computer Application sensei was beyond rude. I was the only one who showed up for class so she quickly gave some questions and I answerd them the best I could. I didn't understand some of the stuff so I asked some questions about it. She ignored them and continued with class. After class I asked her about an e-mail I sent her earlier on and if she can wait before leaving to asnwer some of my questions. She said she hadn't read my e-mail but she'll do it now and that I'll have a good night and left. She wouldn't let me have two words in. She was an complete asshole. I already sent a complaint to the Deam of the Department. This is the second time she blew me off like this. I am not letting her push me back or keep letting her do this to me or any other student.

Hmm. So I had some problems with financial aid... I was blocked from classes and thought I'd have to withdraw, but luckily I got back into classes and I'm still due to graduate with my BA on December 17th! How are you all doing in your classes? I'm taking advanced web design right now. Anyway, I hope all of you are doing well in your classes!
My name is Stephanie but I like going by my japanese name, Ayumi. I just started to attend AIU. I am majoring in Business. I would love to talk to you all. Maybe we're even in class together.

Well, 'spring break' is almost over... and funnily enough I've spent most of it online still playing with my software from last term. I start Typography on Sunday though. I don't know how they're going to fill five weeks with that, but I'm hoping it'll be an easier course so I can maybe use my spare time trying to get a better job. I just got my grade back for last term too, and my teacher forgot to add my unit 5 grade so I don't know what I actually got yet. I hate it when that happens.

Anyway, I haven't heard anything about you guys! What programs are you all in and what classes are you taking next term? I hope you guys are spending your week off better than I am. ;)

I guess I'll go ahead and start this off... maybe more will follow. ;) Anyway, my name is Hayley and I've been a student at AIU for almost a year now. I went to the University of Oregon for a few years but finding time for classes, work, and travelling between Salem and Eugene became too stressful for me so I decided to transfer to AIU. I also was a music student at UofO and it wasn't what I really wanted to do anymore. Since a lot of my credits transferred over I finished my Associates in Business Administration within a few months and then I started the Visual Communication program last November. I'm really liking the way it's set up, especially only taking one course at a time. Before I was having to juggle German, art, music and science all at once and it was nearly impossible to keep everything straight. It's also nice to be able to choose my own hours. I like working at 1 or 2 in the morning because everyone is asleep and I know the phone won't ring and bother me. ;) Right now I'm taking web design and learning Dreamweaver. Anyway, I hope I can find some people to join!
