Academy of Art Student Lion

This is the place for students of Academy of Art University to share their pain, celebrate their existence, and bond together in our frustrations of being 'Urban Knights.'

Why do we need our own page? Well, pretty much every school in the US has one singular campus. AAU is different in that we don't have one campus. We have buildings all over the city of San Francisco. We don't even have our own bookstore. In my opinion, we go through a lot more hassles. Enough to make a blog of them.

Have an idea for a lion? Submit one!
Don't know how? Ask!
Have an idea but don't want to make one? Drop it in the ask box!
What in the bloody hell is the thing in the middle? It's my version of our mascot, the 'Urban Knight.'

Have questions about the Academy? Ask away. I'm happy to answer any questions people have about AAU and the things that go on here.

I regret to inform you all that I won’t be returning to the Academy in the fall. While I enjoyed my time there immensely and it breaks my heart to not be able to return, life occasionally makes those decisions for us. I may be passing this blog along to someone I trust or I may delete it. I have yet to decide that. If I do decide to delete the blog I will most certainly give you lot an update before I do. 

I would have said something about all this sooner, but I’m currently undergoing chemotherapy for a condition called Apathic Anemia and I have been for a good portion of the summer. I haven’t quite been myself of late due to the medication. 

I wish you all the best in your endeavors.

What can you tell me about advertising and the advertising students who go to AAU?
aaustudentlion aaustudentlion Said:

Mmn.. not much, I’m afraid. I don’t actually know any advertising students myself.

Anyone else care to fill in?

is there any "paintballers" or anyone who plays paintball who go to AAU? or events that students hold?
aaustudentlion aaustudentlion Said:

I’m sure there are, but I’ve never heard of any events. That might be something to suggest to Campus Rec.

I'm currently a junior in high school and will be attending AAU's summer program this year after hearing about it from my cousin who went last year. I haven't even been to San Francisco yet but I'm more than excited for the opportunity. I've always been into art but I'm not the best artist and feel like I have a lot to learn compared to other art students my age. I guess what I'm asking is, do you think I'll struggle to keep up with the curriculum? Is a lot expected right away from the students?
aaustudentlion aaustudentlion Said:

I can’t say I really know a whole lot about the high school program, but I think so long as you actually try even the regular curriculum isn’t that heard. Just keep up, don’t fall behind, and do the work. Don’t wait till the last minute and you should be fine.

aaustudentlion aaustudentlion Said:

Fashion merchandising from what I understand is basically the people who buy for department stores, they do styling, uh.. stuff like that. I am not the person to ask about it, to be honest.

Anyone have a better answer?

elvis-john replied to your post: so I had this idea

Facebook like page? Have only close friends like it and then it spreads?

There is already a fb page. The link is in the sidebar.

heckbeck replied to your post: so I had this idea

Post the actual flyer then students can print a post

Oooh.. I like the way you think.

Since this blog needs to be spread around more so people will start submitting things again I thought it would be cool to put up flyers about it in various campus buildings.

But then I would have to be all stealthy about it and shit otherwise this wouldn’t be very anonymous anymore

so I said fuck that

anyone have any other ideas?
