American International College was founded in 1885 by the Reverend Mr. Calvin E. Amaron, who persuaded other enlightened clergy to assist in the establishment of a college that would provide the youth of his ethnic group, French Canadians, with access to higher education.

The campus is small and the professors are dedicated to their students. The humanities department is phenomenal, and very knowledgeable. The health sciences department, is the gem of the institution. I felt 100% more confident and ready to pursue a career in my field by year 3/4.

I liked the education I received in the occupational therapy program I believe it prepared me well for the board test and with my first job. Not to say that there were many times while working I did not feel like I knew what I was doing. But that happens with most grads. As for the school environment I would give it a zero out of 5. Springfield is not the safest and there...
