College Sophomore

Diversity: Most of Pratt is rich, white kids. Pratt doesn't give out very good financial aid packages.

College Sophomore

Majors: I haven't had one yet.

College Sophomore

Majors: Art schools require a portfolio. Putting one together and sending it in is the most stressful thing i've done in my life, because when you're applying to schools it feels like your whole life is riding on whether you get in or not.

College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Some professors are fantastic and have a ton of experiences and will treat you with respect. Others will treat you like you know nothing. It's crazy, but if you get a great professor then you're going to have a great year.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Pratt is one of the best art and design school in the world. A degree from Pratt means that opportunities will surround you throughout your career, but you have to work for them because there's a thousand others just like you who want the same things just as bad.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I don't know if bad means they're very strict or they aren't strict enough, but they are super strict about basically everything. You really can't miss class, you can't drink on campus at all. If you want to do anything, you pretty much just have to leave.

College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: To each his own. Brooklyn can be a beautiful cultural hub, but it can also be a piece of shit. It's hard to say.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: It's really up to you. There is no campus bar, but there are bars everywhere because you're in New York. For every shitty bar out there, there's ten great but possibly more expensive places.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The food is bad, but the servers are wonderful.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: It's great but its extremely difficult and it should be taken seriously. People come in thinking that art school is so easy and all you have to do is sketch a couple things and your done, but the truth is that everyone stays up until they're done, which could mean days.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I'm studying fashion design in New York which is basically the dream. I have so much avaliable to me at all times, I only wish I had a bit more free time.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Again, you're in Brooklyn so you can either cram 5 people into a 2 bedroom apartment or you can overpay and live on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: It's in Brooklyn, so you're kind of taking a risk. But it's a gated campus and there is security next to every entrance. I feel pretty safe walking back from studio at 3am.

Guys & Girls: There really are not a lot of guys at Pratt, and the ones that are there are either really introverted and focused on their work or just kind of aloof. There are a ton of girls there, and honestly most people are pretty cool once you get to know them.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The sports at Pratt are pretty good, but no one really pays attention and it does not bring the Pratt community together.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Social atmosphere is great. Everyone is nice. It's just annoying when people decide to smoke indoors and make the whole hall reek. All the dorms are a 5 minute or less walk to all classes -the perks of having a small campus. The worst dorm is really the worst dorm compared to the rest, and I feel bad for the people who have to live in it.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The drink selection and smoothies are great. The food is horrible. Well, not disgusting, but it's usually tasteless or I just feel like I should not eat it because it seems unappetizing or that it's over/undercooked. I would just rather eat off campus and go to the grocery store to make my own food.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Honestly I don't really go to bars and clubs, but most parties I have been to are fun.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Those involved in Greek life seem to be committed, but not obsessed with it like most people at other schools, which is good. Those not involved in Greek life do not really care about it.

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: I like almost every aspect of the campus. (Other than the little things like the elevators being slow or having to take a lot of stairs.) I enjoy the huge lawn and the class/work areas. I hate the dining hall food and just eat to survive.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Drugs in dorms or noise during quite hours are always faced with consequences. Friends visiting from other schools going to your dorms is always a hassle because security is really annoying and the check-in process is really long, even if they're just there to visit for an hour.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's Brooklyn. There's everything. Although the cost is either really cheap, or rather expensive, but there is no in between.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Everyone is different in every way possible, yet we find common threads that allow all of us to get along. People are proud of who they are, and they are accepting of everyone else. It's so wonderful I wish everyone would always be open and accepting.

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: People do participate in sports teams and go to the gym, but hardly anyone ever really goes to watch the games. Mainly because we go to an art school and athletics are not that significant.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I did receive a Presidential Merit-based Scholarship that helped pay for half of my tuition. However, my parents decided not to take the loans that financial aid offered, because the rates were way too high, and we would end up paying more.
