Overall Experience: Alot of times its hard to convince the professor to let you create your own work. Sometimes it seems like they want you to create thier idea of your idea which is not what it should be like, there is alos sometimes a prejduce in class based on who is shooting what kind of theme.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: You can get alot of help from the school if you put the effort into asking for it.

4 College Senior

Majors: There are alot of great classes that you can take, there is acess to the equipment rooms , we all wish there where actual studios that we could use all the time but that dosnt exist. As well Parsons is very conecpt oriented but many of us do wish that we would have more freedom to express ourselves in a non conceptual way.

2 College Senior

Majors: You work your ass of hours into the night or run around all day doing other peoples errands, you get treated like your nobody and you can be replaced any moment and your not gettng paid for any of the work that you are doing. Its a way of haveing free labor becuase we are students and we need the oppertunity to excel. its the worst system in the world. how can we pay back all the 80000 dollar loans we have becuase of the school when we cant get work with pay.
