How do students compare which schools are right for them?
You find the right art program the same way everyone else finds the right college—research, visit, compare what they offer to what you want. Begin by reading guidebooks, checking out schools’ websites, and researching online and in social media. At the same time, make a list of what you want and don’t want in your college experience. Once you have narrowed the field, plan some campus visits. Throughout this entire process keep asking yourself – Will I be comfortable and successful here? You have to balance academic programs, name recognition (prestige), social interaction, performance or exposure opportunities, financial concerns, and campus life in order to find the right school. If one factor is “off”, you will struggle to be at your best.
Just like any other student. If the can check off most everything on the want list, then that school’s right for them. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
