What is your overall opinion of this school?

The New School is the number 1 design school in the US as of 2018. Since New York City is your campus, there are so many things to go, places to go, and people to meet! The school is heavily discussion based which is a little different from normal schools, but hey being different is great! We encourage it!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very disorganized and inconsistent. Curriculum changes every single year and full time teachers/long time teachers aren't held up to standards. This school has forced me to sacrifice my mental and physical health. The expectations are unexceedably high.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The teachers run the school. Administration doesn't really care about you, or any of its employees. They're all underpaid even though tuition is so high. The facilities are good, and the teachers are good. I came here on scholarships and I'm still broke, so I would not recommend going here unless you have a lot of financial aid or money- almost half of the students drop out first year because of the cost. You can pass this school doing minimal work so it is up to you to truly apply yourself. With the help of your teachers the new school can be an amazing experience but don't rely on the administrative structure and assistance because it will not help you. My favorite thing about the new school is its diversity. My friends aren't just artists but musicians, film makers, journalists, and actors. The people you meet are what make this school worth it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love my school's community, there are so many talented students who love to support each other. The school itself could work on communicating with students in all aspects as opposed to students having to figure things out themselves. Overall, The New School is the perfect place for students who love creative and artistic freedom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

So far, amazing. It is a very unique school and a very big city - New York City. It stands out compared to the other schools due to the community and the students. I am very interested in this school and would love to see other students come here more often.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Beware of their dorm and agreement. I was forced to move out two weeks prior to finals at 10pm at night because I was in a class with some one who had mumps. They told me to grab stuff and leave. They did not provide assistance or alternative housing, left to search for hotel room, which they only offered to cover two nights even though I was not allowed back for 14 days. Never received an offer or check for re-embursement. I was locked out of all University buildings until after the school was closed for Winter break. Not feeling safe going back to an environment that can remove you from your living space and with the advice my RA that I could find alternative housing by filling a form. Unfortunately the school refuses to reimburse me for the loss of December housing and is refusing to release me from housing contract for second semester even though I was forced into this by their failure to follow protocol. It seems the school is more interested in money then providing a safe comfortable environment for students. I continue to spend time to advocating for a reasonable resolve. If you have been through something similar perhaps we could collaborate on getting the school to take responsibility for their actions There is less expensive or about the same cost to live off campus in the area. With in 15 – 20 minutes of walking distance. Choose wisely.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's difficult to talk about the New School without talking about New York City. Maybe that's because it's difficult to be in New York City without talking about the city. It is the most inclusive place on earth; it will open its arms to you, no matter your skin color, political view, or background. The same things can be said of the New School. Of course there are eclectic courses, extensive facilities, and both students and faculty from around the world providing such a rich variety of viewpoints and opinions. Yet perhaps one of the best things the New School can offer its students is a feeling of community; which is odd considering there are no sports teams, Greek life, or actual campus. It offers a sense of belonging - an invitation to be exactly who you are. If you don't have that figured out yet, the New School gives you the freedom to explore your passions and find your niche in the world, with all the opportunities New York City has to offer at your fingertips. The New School is a great university for motivated students wishing to make that huge leap into the belly of the beast - New York City itself.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While the academics and opportunities are very good, the community of the school does not exist and the student life is nothing like that of a normal college. I wish there was greek life or more available extra curricular's. Overall, it is a very student competitive school and while the opportunities are good you will not find yourself living a normal college life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I appreciate the stimulation The New School for Drama offers. This stimulation comes in many forms: encouraging students to audition professionally, informing them of internship opportunities, enabling them to take classes at Parsons or Eugene Lang in order to fulfill credits, and so much more. However, there are some downsides. There is a lack of ethnic diversity, and the tuition is incredibly expensive. It is not the "liberal" safe haven that it claims to be.

many are very cliquey, very boujee, stuck up

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Prior to my attendance, I had never heard of The New School, it wasn't until I began looking into Liberal Arts universities and researching their principles and values that I found and instantly fell in love with this university. They value culture and activism. Social Justice is practically the foundation of this university. They cater to a wide range of interests and career paths. The faculty are beyond helpful and truly care for the students. I have been blessed with amazing professors who are actually workers in their industry of teaching. All possess a passion for teaching and are just endless vaults of knowledge. I am honored to be surrounded by such great people. The New School is innovative and simply amazing.
