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.
