Great school but highly expensive. You might need an attorney to check where all your funds are for and what you are being charged for because it can get pretty scary in the Financial Aid office. Check them out. The University is it's own Gem but im not sure if it's as diverse as they portray themselves to be.
The New School is a very good school to learn and enhance your skills and technique of your craft or your academic virtue.
At first I was a little apprehensive. I was used to colleges having greek life, sports, and a campus. TNS is very non-traditional. It was uncomfortable at first, but now I'm a pro at everything New York has to offer. The students are really nice and filled with righteous passion. The dorms and tuition is very pricey but its completely worth it. The dorms have a million dollar view! The food is gourmet style! I love it here and I would never want to be anywhere else.
Overall, the new school has an artistic and diverse atmosphere. However, studying here especially in the fashion design major can be super stressful. Most of my friends only have 3 to 4 hours of sleep during school days, and pulling all-nighters are very common for them. The studios in school are always busy even at 3 o'clock in the morning. The work-load is crazy, but you can learn a lot if you can take the pressure.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for The New School is 60%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
The most I have gotten out of this school is the respect. The learning is a one on one basis. the teachers really care and push you to do your best. Not alot of school do that due to the fact. College is about doing things your self. learing on your own. the sports are very good. We have alot of supporters, even when we lose. This college has had a good impact on my life and the decsioins i choose while living.
They are an inquisitive and enthusiastic group who I love learning with, getting to know, many of whom have become my friends.
The curriculum at the school is somewhat outdated, which creates a bit of controversy as the programs are geared toward replicating current industry situations.
The expensive is so frustrating. It is a very expensive school and trying to find ways to pay for it is a very difficult and trying process.
I really like being here at TNS. The people are friendly, there is departmental and academic support, and our teachers are always willing to go the extra mile to connect with their students to ensure that the material they are being taught will impact them in daily life.
One thing I think the New School does well is unite it's students. Though many come from different backgrounds, programs at TNS (from organizations like Musical Theater and TNS Outdoors to frequent lectures from guest speakers) aim to bring together people with simliar views and opinions for a chance to learn from each other.
Since this school doesn't have any sports teams, "school pride" is routed through to award winning professors and alumni who are out in the field, working towards changing the world. In the same way that TNS is not a typical college, it also does not have a typical campus. To have New York City at your finger tips is the dream of many of the students coming in from around the world. The city's vast wealth of resources and opportunities enable even the wildest of ideas to take form.
This isn't really anything that I wish I knew before I came to the school. So far my experience has been great.
The best thing about The New School is freedom. I'm able to create my own degree program if I so choose. I am responsible for what I learn and how. My professors respect me, my work, and will work with me in bettering myself and achieving my goals.
If you appreciate small classes and a creative approach to learning and have a degree of self motivation, this school is for you.
Within the division of Parsons School of Design at the New School, the students usually are artists, who vary in style and appearance. A general stereotype or perspective of the student body at Parsons is artsty, hippy and unique individuals. This classification isnt a negative stereotype as it is close to accurate, where everyone fits in their own skin and style at The New School.
A person who knows what they do and is more than willing and able to stay up all night, and work harder than they had ever imagined they could in order to get to that place is the only type of person who would be able to gradute from Parsons. There is an immense amount of people who do not realise this and either fail or drop out when they realize they true amount of dedication and persistance is needed in order to succeed in the program.
The amazing design of the actual buildings. The freedom in class selection. And supportive staff. They great fun classes
They shoot "Project Runway" at Parsons. Yuck.
The New School focuses on expanding one's ideas and concepts of design as compared to other schools which focus solely on technical skills. At the end of the day, most anyone can learn how to use a sewing machine. However, it is what one makes that sets one designer apart from the other.
Academics at the New School is very competitive, stimulating, the classes are small in comparison to larger institutions (17:1 ration with the professor) which I confidently prefer and learning is face paced.
There are soo many to be honest, too much to list but I'll list the ones I am affiliated or contributed to in the past, they are: the New Black, New School student government and Afro-futurism.
Honestly, I went to another college first that I thought would be the perfect school and it really wasn't. I had always considered the New School but I wasn't sure if it was the right fit. I've always wanted to live in New York City, and I was trying to find a school that would fit me. Once I saw the amazing courses that Lang had, I knew there wasn't another option.
Anything and everything.Everyone has a distinct personality and nobody ever feels embarrassed by what is right for them!
Definitely. Moving to New York City all the way from the other side of the world with no relatives here has pushed me to learn to be more independant
