3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I seemed ok, but I do not have the experience necessary to offer feedback.

4 College Senior

Campus Dining: There is many tasty and healthy choices available.

4 College Senior

Majors: It was a good process.

4 College Senior

Majors: I am happy with my program. I would do it all over again, but maybe the second time it would be a little less painful. I want to learn continuously! My career goals are to collaborate. I am interested in CRG organization at Berkeley, and exploring Stanford. I really believe in the value of creative and artistic perspectives. I want to promote, acknowledge, and appreciate art by continuing to re-think and re-shape it's role in the community. I want to highlight artist's strengths and valuable assets they generously give to society. One of my goals is to be an advocate for art and artists.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I think it is balanced.

1 College Senior

Athletics: I think its very lacking. A club that promotes local hiking trips and or excursion outside the city would liven up the scene. It would provide alternate experience to the urban landscape.

5 College Senior

Diversity: It is really one of the crowning features at Sfai. Diversity drives creativity.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Seems to be a good variety, but very expensive.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: No problems that I have encountered.

5 College Senior

Guys & Girls: The students at Sfai are culturally and artistically diverse.

4 College Senior

Facilities: Sfai has a beautiful main campus with a great library. The Graduate Center is located near Potrero Hill which is a really great neighborhood in San Francisco. The events and lectures are top notch!

4 College Senior

Facilities: I think the professors are what make sfai so great. The emphasis on theory, philosophy, and political topics really create a forum to engage with current global discourses and issues in critical and creative ways.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Finding off campus housing is stressful and a bit challenging. The challenging process proves to offer great personal experience, however It does take time away from being focused on academics and enjoying the city.

4 College Senior

Academics: Some unique aspects about the program are the open minded attitude of professors and faculty to explore and experiment conceptually.The encouragement to engage in coss-disciplinary projects was great.

4 College Senior

Academics: I really loved the professors and faculty members at sfai. The professors were all well versed in their field of interested and challenged students to critically engage with the course material. The graduate center staff was always available to help.

2 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I wish they offered more than approx 4-5 grand per semester as a scholarship. It's 20 grand to go to the school... and 15-16 grand is still expensive for 3 months.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's a one-of-a-kind place with really interesting things going on.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Very wide variety of people attending this school. It's hard to say there's a "typical" anything at an institution dedicated to art.

4 College Sophomore

Transportation: The public transportation system is easy to navigate and easy to access.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Nice weather in the afternoons and evenings... It's San Fran, so it's foggy otherwise. It is paradise.

4 College Junior

Computers: Good computer labs and free printing. Anywhere on campus wireless availability.

4 College Junior

Facilities: Great library full of amazing books on art. Architecturally a beautiful campus, and an amazing view. It's an art school so events can get pretty weird.
