Here we go again!

Strap in. Massive layoffs about to happen.

Are we selling campuses or closing?

I'm hearing so many stories. I know for sure that San Jose is closing (personally, it should have been done a long time ago). Los Angeles stopped enrolling, so they may be closing. But then I heard that they are going to try and sell all the other US... read more

I am still hopeful that we will all thrive.

We have been weathering storms for a number of years, starting around 2008. After some really thin years, we were acquired, which started yet another period of adjustment. From this recent round of layoffs, our process of getting back on track has... read more

Compliance is back!

Finally some sense. Now if they would bring back Chris Davie, the call center manager and career services lady. There's no one who really does their jobs.

Start Packing Your Bags

SAE is accredited by ACICS. ACICS is no longer recognized by the US Dept. of Education as an approved accrediting authority for Title IV Federal Financial Aid. The doors will be closed in 18 months if not sooner.

SAE sucks sucks sucks

We suck suck suck. I wish they would transfer me to ANY overseas SAE. This is embarrassing. No wonder everyone is bailing.

What's happening at Ex'pression these days?

I heard rumors that there's a new campus director and that his big plans are to close the south building, reconfigure the north building, and start two separate course tracks - one day, one night, so students can hold down a job. Both sound like good... read more

Multiple Sound Arts layoffs

To attend a farewell party for the long time core of the Ex'pression Sound Arts faculty was truly devastating. SAE has its head so far up its ass it's truly in the dark about preserving the basic elements of quality education. It all started when... read more

SAE Institutes to shut down....

So I have SAE on my Google Alerts. Anyone else notice that more and more SAE campuses are shutting down? Has not completely hit the US campuses, but so far I've seen 4 in the last 3 weeks.


This week in news at Ex'pression College (or is it Expressions?): The library is closed, the cafeteria is closing, and the Emeryville campus director resigned. Friday we have our almost weekly sendoff for an integral team member, Karen Stackpole -... read more

I am soon leaving, but wanted to leave my thoughts with you.

English is not my first language, so please I am sorry! I am based overseas from US and totally sympathize with what you are going through. However, seeing what I see every day makes me wonder how the hell SAE got so big with such poor management... read more

Centralized process?

I have read a number of threads regarding embracing change and how a centralized process can and has worked at other schools. I have been at schools that effectively implemented a centralized process and I agree, it worked just fine. However, the... read more

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team...

SAE US has somehow mastered it. 1) ABSENCE OF TRUST - Corporate does not trust the campus level, so they do not empower them with the necessary tools and resources. In its place, they decide to centralize certain functions at HQ (IE/ FA in... read more

LA Troubles?

I'm getting a little bit worrisome with what's happening at the Los Angeles campus. Everything is at a strange standstill with any progression. Are we able to pay our bills? Why are we not finishing the build out?

Miami Headquarters Office Down to Skeleton Crew

Call center employees have recently resigned; Marketing functions moved to Navitas' paid vendors; CEO came to Miami headquarters recently to "calm nerves" & reassure existing employees that the future is "bright and full of opportunity at SAE," but... read more

ExPression Fall Out

ExPression is about to have another major fall out. And the big wigs at SAE either don't know or don't care. There are major issues here. Some were brewing before SAE came in. But they were fully disclosed. And now... plain negligence on SAE's part.

Admissions Forecast Numbers are misrepresented

I have sat through a handful of our admissions calls and it's never quite accurate. There are on solid definitions to what is a lead, a start, an enrollment that people are just shouting out numbers that do not match the software not campusvue. Our... read more

Bring back the HS program

Is there any discussion about some how bringing back the HS Ambassadors? We may not need 2 per each campus, but we need something or all that we've done in the last year is a waste. Why not have an Admissions rep who enrolls also follow through with... read more
