Student Life
art and design school students

Art Institute of Seattle students come from all over the world and from a variety of backgrounds. Some are fresh out of high school, others have been working for years. Whatever a student's situation, add college to the mix and things can get intense.

For students coming straight from high school, this is probably the first time they have lived away from home. That can be fun. However, with independence comes responsibility. Like doing all the shopping, laundry and household bills, on top of going to college, on top of a part-time job, and on top of fun with friends. For older students there can be a different set of challenges. Like continuing to work full- or part-time while attending The Art Institute and still being there for your family.

Student Affairs is here to clear your way for an education rich with opportunities and experience.
