As if teaching online isn’t a complete disaster already, especially for an art school, how does the school completely ignore student complaints? I keep relaying this information, but to no avail, everything is constantly ignored. How long do they expect to keep this up with students dropping from classes? Some students are back on campus, in the hybrid format, I can’t imagine how any student would feel with no library, no study rooms, no cafeteria. And from what I heard today, another enrollment counselor was let go, not sure if her numbers or student enrollment are low, but how does a campus gain students without admissions members? Shake my head. And I just saw the new colors that were painted in the hallways, looks like a complete circus, which is fitting seeing that clowns around the school.

There are some students on campus. Schools are listed as essential businesses and could remain open is they followed safety guidelines. I was campus on campus couple weeks ago and only saw a few people - security, admin, students on computers, painters and support. Campus is open for student use as labs. Some classes part time virtual and in class.. Anyone can go to the campus.
If you so unhappy with the Art Institutes go somewhere else...please. All this blaming and b#tching. So many other choices, I don't get the anger anymore. You have clear warnings. Only a few schools left that broke off and went private. They have nothing to do with the last owner. Doubt they will last much longer without investment and name change. It is toxic. Part of the problem at the Art Institutes has always been they accepted anyone. No standards. Some of the schools were amazing, great reputations and pushed students but they bit the dust when DCEH/EDMC went under.
@bzli+16LH97x: This is what incompetents do: blame coronavirus for your failings. This school has cheated kids and families for years. But, let's just LIE and say PEOPLE WILL DIE. No, this is just another excuse for being frauds and cheats. SICK of you...
Despite all the fear mongering, some staff members are still required to be on campus. I wonder if the school is in violation of Miami Dade orders... If staff members can go to school, why can’t students?
If only the people who thumbed their noses at this virus got SICK... then the rest of us would not have to worry. Oh wait, they are getting sick and dying! Too bad they are taking family members, friends and coworkers down with them. Clearly ignorance has spread as easily as this virus. Campuses need to stay closed until it is safe to return.
Goodness. You are totally buying into the panic p–n. Guess you wear a mask when you jog. I feel sorry for your fear–unless you have a health condition to make you afraid.
Stay home, take a couple quarters off. No one is going to risk their life to serve you food at the cafe or check out a book. I will not return to campus until this pandemic is over and I expect faculty and staff to do the same. Colleges all around the state that opened early are quickly learning it may be next to impossible to create a coronavirus-free environment on campus. The virus continues to spread at high rates. In Florida, officials reported deaths of more than 200 people in a day – for at least the 10th time in the past month (August 2020). More than 5.5 million Americans have been infected since the start of the pandemic and at least 172,000 have died. Your complaints seem petty.
