Cornish College of the Arts is probably the best embodiment of Seattle that there is. Accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, Cornish hires working professionals to provide the best, most immersive educational experience possible. Since you're learning from people in the industry, you're building relationships that will help you book jobs in the future. The campus is tiny, but it's easy to get around and easy to build relationships with the small student body.
When I took a tour of Cornish College of the Arts, I got the immediate feeling that I belonged. With close interactions and a community that encourages you to do what you love, I am in love with this school. Its been a long time since I've loved attending school and now I wake up everyday excited to see what I'll learn in my classes. Its a close knit community where the supervisors help to set you up to succeed. I am proud to attend Cornish.
Although the amenities and location of Cornish are admirable, there was a culture on campus that was very pretentious and exclusionary and the quality of the education did little in the way of preparing the students for a working career in their field. The actual academics were very lenient and the quality of the general education classes were poor.
Cornish is truly an amazing experience. While some things can be buggy, what is perfect in this world? While sometimes you might feel like it is very pricey, and things can get stressful, the professors you will meet make up for every dime and every single second you spend with them. Specifically for theatre students, the teachers you will meet are working professionals who have nothing to give but real world experience and discoveries that will help you open many doors. Though its true this isn't Julliard or Yale, there are certainly things not even those big name schools could give you that Cornish can.

If I could go back, I would tell myself to start early, and don't be afraid to ask questions. The more time you have applying and researching colleges, the better. Research colleges over the summer after Junior year, and know roughly where you want to go by the start of Senior year. Have your applications done by Christmas break. If, like me, you have no idea where you want to go, or even how to find out where you would want to go, ask as many people as possible. Ask them where they went to college, what they thought of it, and where they think you should go. Think about what you want out of a college, things like where you want to be, how many students you want to be around, and of course what you want to study. If you're really stuck at the beginning, just thinking about what kind of weather you want to live around can get you going. Your teachers and family are there to help you. Don't be afraid to use them.
I believe the energy that flows through the school is the best thing about it. All the departments creates wonderful art that inspires the other departments which creates this flow that bounces from building to building, floor to floor, room to room, and student to student.
very diversified group of students that are very friendly and serious about the education that they are receiving.
Cornish is strictly an art school, anything from painting, web design, photography, theater, musical theater, dance, music, and production. I f you have a passion for any of these things and you are serious about turning it into a career Cornish is the place to be. You have to put your soul and have a great deal of desire in order to achieve this dream you have been chasing after.
Cornish is a private school, that is, its tuition is foolishly high.
The campus is spread out. You have to walk to get from one building to another, often in the cold and the rain. Even if you live "on campus" it's still a ten minute walk to get to class in the mornings. And if you are a music or dance major, you have to go up onto Capital Hill to get to class.
Wonderful, kind, but not open. I don't see many people outside of school.
A person that is not sure if they want to have a job in the arts should not go to this school, it is very expensive. Someone who can not stay on task and take care of themself should also not go to Cornish. You have to be responsible and respectful to go to Cornish.
I don't need to do math. I get to do what I love all day.
My school is best known for creating amazing works of art and with that comes creating amazing artists. And going above and beyond the ordinary. The school is very small, the teachers are 100 percent focused on you at all times, and you really get to know your teachers on much more personal level than any other college. While growing in you field of study you always have support from everyone.
The most unique part about this school is that because it is so small all of the various departments are able to come together and make beautiful pieces of art. Usually, Theatre and Music performance are seperate from one another but as artists we can perform a monologue while a trombone player performs a jazz solo. At Cornish, we the students are also in charge of our own education. If we don't want to take a particular class and would musch rather take another class instead then we can.
I wish I'd known what a struggle the finances would be. I was given the impression that as I progressed I'd get more financial aid each year, but that has not been the case. I thought by now (halfway through my junior year), I'd be getting enough financial aid that it would replace the loans I'm taking out, but instead I'm going deeper and deeper into debt. That isn't Cornish's fault, as financial aid is drying up everywhere, but still it's really unfortunate. I hope the economy improves soon.
