How to See What You’ll get from the Academy of Art University

In 1929, the Stephen’s family had a dream to open a school in the San Francisco, California area. They had succeeded, and made an Academy called the Academy of Arts, and it was named such until Richard S. Stephen’s stepped down, and handed the school over to his son Dr. Richard A. Stephens who added bachelor’s and Undergraduate programs to the Academy, and they became Academy of Art College. With the new programs added, enrollment soared above 5,000 and to this day it’s still one of the few Colleges in the United Stated to be privately owned. Then in 2004 The granddaughter of the founder Richard S. Stephens, Dr. Elisa Stephens took over the college, and under her guidance, they became the Academy of Art University. On top of the school being privately owned by the same family for over 90 years, the entire family are art lovers who are involved in the art community.

The video created by Sam Bear shows a day-in-the-life of a university student who is taking classes at the Academy of Art University. It shows him getting up at 9 a.m., then he tours the city of beautiful San Francisco, California, and progresses as he gets a free ride to the college by flashing his school ID. Then he starts classes at 11 a.m., then takes a break and hang out with his friends for a few hours before taking his afternoon class. Yes, only two classes at the university because they want to focus on the experience of college, and they want students to have all their focus on classes and projects. It then shows him hanging out with his friends again, and then back to the dorm to crash out by 11 p.m. This video is something that every college should do. This is a more accurate description of life on campus that a simple tour of the school.

Literally Jet Smarter with Sergey Petrossov’s JetSmarter App, the Uber of Private Flights


Sergey Petrossov is the founder and CEO of the JetSmarter app. This nifty platform is like the Uber for private jets. They have more than eight thousand paid members that fork out an annual fee of $14,000 to avail of unlimited chartered flights. There is something extra special about the exclusivity of chartered flights that scream all out luxury. But JetSmarter, with its vast routes that offer different kinds of tailor-fit services to suit their clients’ needs, is actually quite affordable in the long run.

The JetSmarter subscribers can literally jet smarter by using the app that provides them with various options. Members can choose to create their own shared charter flights with the people they like, they can opt to travel on a private jet shuttle on a scheduled flight, or they can actually rent an entire private jet for their own personal use if they don’t feel like riding with anyone at all.

The nice thing about being aligned with an app like this, if you choose to share a chartered plane with others, you don’t get to rub elbows with the typical masses. Instead, you are surrounded by like-minded people that also ascribe to high standards. Sergey Petrossov noted that traveling his JetSmarter brand through their many scheduled and on-demand flights is actually a great way to network.

JetSmarter is a very clever app that is able to leverage on technology to make massive profits by tapping into a niche market that longs for this brand of service at a more affordable price tag. One of their smart strategies is that they do not maintain their own private jet, which is expensive and tedious to do. Instead, theirs is a collaboration with a huge network of chartered flight companies. Sergey Petrossov said they act as a middleman who does the seamless scheduling for their esteemed clients with highly discriminating tastes.


Sergey Petrossov noted that their set up started with simple operations in a small office with a few key staff members that had to multitask the various workloads. Now, he proudly announces that they have grown to more than 260 employees in various locations around the globe.
