College Senior

Online Courses: There are no online courses

College Senior

Facilities: They focus on interior design.

2 College Senior

Tuition & Financial Aid: They fired the last financial aid individual and rightfully so. Most people understand that a college can't tell you what financial institutions to select for financial aid - but they should provide help in selecting them and educating the student body. They didn't even offer financial aid through the government directly when I started there. This came with the new financial aid individual.

3 College Senior

Student Body: It would be nice to have classes geared more towards working professionals and to have limited interaction with younger students that are less mature.

1 College Senior

Academic Flexibility: No flexibility of classes, hassles and frustrations are typical weekly.

2 College Senior

Career Services: Again, they are very limited. They do not have a career center and the job prospects take advantage of students - in regards to how much they are paid and how much they actually learn.

1 College Senior

Campus Resources: There is no campus, although NY City is the campus. However, there is a $ requirement each semester for activities that are very limited and do not consider the entire population of the school.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: In addition to the above, the registration process was recently updated to online registration which is good, but is still not updated to other schools. The curriculum is good but also needs to be updated to the current industry and reality of industry outside of school. Budgets are not taught and although allowing students to not feel restricted with creativity, it would be beneficial to learn how to still be creative within a budget. Business techniques are not taught and should be an integral part of the curriculm.

3 College Senior

Academic Experience: It's great for high school students who know they wish to obtain a degree in interior design. Like all schools, there are great professors and not so great professors. For the most part, NYSID does have a good staff of professors for the industry. The school does not make it easy for existing professionals to obtain a degree because of the lack of available time slots of classes. It does not offer online possibilities nor does it seem to be future focused on how to teach their students. They have a great reputation and most students who even apply to the school and have good grades are perfectionists to begin with and have a dedication to learning, passion for the industry and overall goal to exceed expectations. Their job opportunities are lacking and the workload is intense. The facilities are not suitable for the degree and they need to renovate. They also recently put a lot of money into their master's facility in which undergraduates are not even allowed to enter or utilize.

College Sophomore

Academic Experience: Workload is something that was explained to me by my advisor but I know that it comes with this major and career

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love what this school represents, and I am very passionate about this career, but I wish the process was a bit simpler for us transfer students and students seeking financial aid help

College Sophomore

Academic Experience: My first class was a delight, everything that was explained in Basic Drafting helped us finish the assignment

2 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: The Financial Aid process has made my experience very negative

College Sophomore

Career Services: During our orientation they explained to us about all the alumni network but I haven't experienced it because i haven't completed my 12 credits at the school which is when were allowed to look for jobs within the school alumni

College Sophomore

Campus Resources: Their aren't any athletic centers in my school, as far as the student center I am a transfer student, I haven't really experienced it.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: One of the things I do like about the school is the amount of places were you could print all your projects, the wireless access allows us to use our personal computers. They've placed computers in the classrooms but I feel like it makes it hard for us to draw our drawings with a computer monitor on our desk

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: My experience with Financial Aid and the Bursar's Office hasn't been as great as it's been with the other schools I've attended.

College Sophomore

Student Body: First year in school, haven't had any experience with the Student body

3 Recent Alumnus

Academic Flexibility: Most courses are given twice in the morning and afternoon/ evening but some important courses are only taught by one instructor at one time of day.

Recent Alumnus

Online Courses: School just recently implemented two online courses which I have not tried and will not get the chance to as I have already completed those courses in a classroom setting.

3 Recent Alumnus

Career Services: Online job board available to all students who have completed 12 credits. Very helpful in finding an internship or entry level position in the industry as well as finding salary positions.

2 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: A lot of networking opportunities as professors are professionals in the industry but very difficult to focus on networking when so much time is spent trying to figure out the courses and complete demanding coursework in such a short amount of time.

2 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Only one major in this particular school which means all Interior Design all the time. Makes for a very competitive environment and very minimal talk about other subjects

2 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience: Workload is extremely heavy. Very difficult to attend full-time and carry a job which is necessary to pay for the expensive tuition.

2 Recent Alumnus

Tuition & Financial Aid: Value of education is not worth the large amount of money spent. Courses are given in an order which makes it difficult to grasp the curriculum and expectations.
