What is your overall opinion of this school?

After completing my undergraduate degree at Parsons The New School for Design, I feel that my education was both valuable and played a role in my personal growth. I am passionate about strengthening brands and hope to master solving marketing challenges through creativity and strategic insight. My entrepreneurial spirit has always been intrigued by consumer behavior and data-driven insights, which drove me to pursue an educational program that challenged me to use both my analytical and creative skill sets. The interplay between research, strategy, problem-solving, communication and innovation at Parsons The New School for Design answered this passion and gave me the opportunity to further my career path in marketing.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It may not be for everyone, but I certainly felt it was a good fit for me, although it does take some getting used to. If you love New York and being in New York, you'll like this school. There are many unique classes offered, and the class sizes are small making the professors very accessible. However, being in such a small school while you quickly know people, there really isn't any community offered like in a traditional campus. Just keep in mind you are tackling city life, along with college which is certainly a lot to handle.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The New School is full of bullshit. They do not practice what they preach on any level and you pay $65,000 a year for a mediocre education. Parsons receives all of the funding and lang is left with considerably less funding and you see it. They have some good teachers however if you upset them in anyway you suffer and so does your grade. While the classes have cool names the class itself is not interesting and you have surface level conversations about complex topics that should be discussed in depth. As for the community there is none, it is hard to meet people other than classes and dorms and there are almost no common spaces. At The New School you have to fight for your education and there are few things set up to support students. If you want a very non traditional education then this is the school for you, but if you are questioning what you want The New School is definitely not for you. The New School is more money then its worth and it does not live up to the hype.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love The New School and find that there are many great connections and opportunities within the campus, as well. The professors are very helpful and available always! I will be starting my second semester at the school shortly and have really enjoyed what the school has to offer so far. The location is great because it's a very safe and comfortable area, as well as accessible to many transportation options throughout the city.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I went to The New School for my MFA, and after being at a small liberal arts college up in New England for my BA, I was happy to return to my hometown of NYC to pursue my graduate studies. The New School gave me a fairly good financial aid package (grants and fellowships) for my three year MFA program, in which I combined Film & Media Studies, with Theater and Media Criticism in the University's' Schools of Public Engagement. Loved being able to live off campus in my home borough of Brooklyn, and save $$$$ while in grad school as well, after being forced to live on-campus for all four years as an undergraduate. Compared to Hampshire College (1,400 students), The New School is fairly large (10,000+ students), but what I really loved about it was how good of a school it is for creative students, and that unlike NYU, or FIT, or SVA, there is more of an emphasis on an interdisciplinary approach to studying your field of interest. I found New School fairly easy as a graduate student, but I think that was because I'd already attended an undergraduate institution that was like graduate school. Forming a Master's thesis committee, engaging with professors and making connections, writing a thesis or dissertation, doing projects, working in the community, these were all things I came into The New School with already, having done extremely well at the undergraduate level at Hampshire. The New School was a great choice for me as a graduate student who is creative and wanted to continue a career in the arts. I turned down NYU for grad school to attend the New School which I felt was the better choice. I'd already applied and been waitlisted at NYU as an undergraduate, and I vastly preferred The New School's smaller programs, smaller campus, and smaller department sizes. Overall, both universities are VASTLY different sizes student body-wise (NYU is over five times the size of The New School), but The New School just overall "fit" me better and you get the same quality of education (if not better because it's more personalized, especially for undergraduates but graduates also)) that you would get at NYU. I knew so many people (many of them from high school, but also some from Hampshire who chose NYU for grad school) and also just people I worked with who had gone there, and they all felt "lost in the cracks." To have that kind of experience (ESPECIALLY as a graduate student) at a private university did NOT seem worth it to me. Ergo, why I chose both Hampshire and then The New School over NYU. At the graduate level anyway, I'd rather share resources and academically compete against a couple of thousand other postgraduate students at The New School (3, 138 to be exact, smaller than my High School in Brooklyn which was just over 4,000 students) then compete with 24,706 other postgraduates at NYU. No thanks. The beautiful new campus center on 5th Avenue that was completed in 2014, was not yet in existence when I was at The New School, and wow, is it an AMAZING building or what? That's indicative of the vibrant campus culture that The New School has, and I hope the campus keeps growing and evolving. If you are a creative student, I truly believe that The New School is actually better than NYU, especially at the graduate level, and I would think at the undergraduate level as well. Can't recommend it enough.

I absolutely love The New School! The intellectual discussions, city life, and wonderful friendships. The college is in an amazing location and I could not ask for a better college experience! I would recommend The New School to any artistically-inclined young person.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The new school is great for people who care a lot about the world that going on around them. They understand that fine arts is the future of humanity. Everyone is very vocal about their opinions and don't mind listening to other and learning their reasoning on why they think that way.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The New School is a University. The College/ Institution I was in is a liberal arts college called Eugene Lang College at The New School. Me, coming from a household where income is very low, the New School is a very expensive private college to go to. For anyone who enjoys to write and study more liberal arts courses like, social studies, economics, etc. Eugene Lang is the perfect school for you. There is alot of reading and papers to do at this school. One of the things I most enjoyed about this college were the professors, at least the ones I had were kind and understanding.
