I wish that I had known how steep the price of my Field Work Term could be, and had been better prepared to fund it. For Field Work Term, every student has to find themselves a seven-week-long job or internship and they are responsible for finding their own housing and funding. While the teachers and staff are incredibly helpful and supportive in finding help for students, it would have been good to know more about what to expect.
That the VAPA is one of the best departments at Bennington.
I wish I had known more about how unhelpful the administration is with people who may need finanicial aid, but didn't qualify for it from the government. I also wish I had known how far away it was from everything.
That living on campus would grow old.
I wish I had known more about the houses and about the fact that pianos are not tuned here. Also about the fact that there have been some issues with administration not listening to students. Essentially, the problems going on here could have been told to us. I prefer honesty. I feel like things were held back because they wanted to sell me on Bennington. I wish I could have been able to weigh the pros and cons.
