What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, the School of Visual Arts (SVA) is a wonderful place. I have met more like-minded and intellectually stimulating people that I can get along with in my first semester than I had in almost the rest of my life combined. The students behave like family, and the teachers like helpful aunts and uncles. The housing is at times messy, and we often bemoan the lack of a meal plan. But ultimately, the experience of being in the city amongst so many amazing people and having so many outstanding educational experiences make the less fortunate details end up meaning little in the long run.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SVA( School of Visual Arts) has a love/hate relationship with its students. On the one hand, this is a place where one can elevate their artistic skills. I started as an animation student, and now I'm a screenwriting major. I never saw myself as a writer, and then a great professor unlocked my potential. However, SVA's lack of housing, an infirmary, STEM courses, financial aid for part-time students, and disregard for basic safety can leave students with additional challenges and unnecessary frustration. The reason I switched from animation to film; involved multiple accidents on campus; a wrist injury, a concussion, and back injury (two were preventable). The recent NY Times expose on SVA's sexual harassment scandal leaves at a poor taste. Nevertheless, there's light at the end of the tunnel, unlike other college's I've been too (yes, I'm a transfer student); SVA students do have the power to create an impact. We have a strong initiative and sense of social justice. SVA listens to its students. Thanks to the bravery of students reporting on sexual harassment the faculty is cleaning house; making room for a new era of ideas and much-needed change. I'll be the student who petitions for an infirmary on campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love the community here at SVA. The connections I'm making (and have made already) through the faculty, staff, and even other students. My peer group is amazing, we're all really focused on building a community, not only in SVA, but one that can also be substantial after we graduate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Just finished my first year and overall, it wasn't as scary as I thought. Besides the amount of hours and crucial work that has to be done; especially your art projects. If you're serious about art as your career choice, then SVA is where it's at. With a variety of Professors that work in almost every art field; it's your chance to learn a thing or two from them. As well the freedom of choosing different classes that half are open to all majors. The convenient location for an art college is another thing to love. In the middle of New York City; where there an art scene at each corner ! Where so many internships and job opportunity for the current students.

I loved the School of Visual Arts! You are free to express yourself in various ways physically and verbally without any judgement. The dorms are phenomenal, very modern and white and spacious. They include a kitchenette, beautiful large window and even a television! There is also 24 hour security to ensure your safety.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I first heard about the school, I was set on making sure I attending believing that it would be beneficial towards a career in animation. Now that I'm approaching my final year of school, I can say that it was all time well spent, that I wouldn't be where I am now without it, and that I would highly recommend this experience to anyone else who wishes to apply.

School of visual arts is a great school to be in when pruning the career as an artist. The peer group is amazing, motivation is giving all around. I never felt so moved and passionate to be an artist until I came to this school

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I couldn't be happier with my decision to move to New York City and attend The School of Visual Arts. I am a photography & video major and I will be a junior this fall. I recommend the following professors, Abby Robinson, Sardi Klein, Joe Sinnott, Tim Maul, and Leonard De Lessio. If you're considering art school I urge you to visit SVA.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think School of Visual arts is a great college that helps students get internships and preps them for work in their field of study. They are great with helping students get jobs even before they graduate. Professors and the school counselors are always there to help when you need it.
