5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my program!! It is the reason I go to my school. I am a musical theater major, and I love the entire PAD at SFUAD. The program is very new so it is still growing, but lots of positive changes are being made, and I can see it becoming one of the best in the country. All of my teachers are constantly pushing me, and the entire PAD works together to help you get the best education and most experience possible.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Getting into the musical theater program is not easy, but it is very doable. It is easier than some other schools because SFUAD does a second audition/evaluation your sophomore year to see how you are keeping up and how you are growing. If you are not keeping up for you sophomore evaluation, they are more strict than in your first audition. If the program does not see you as where you should be at that point they can deny you of your BFA and you will be on a track of a BA in Theater Performance instead.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: No one really loves dorm living, but out of all the campus dorms i toured through, the ones at SFUAD were not the best, but they were not even close to the worst either. It won't be the best place you ever live, but for a great education it was more than worth it.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is so safe! Everyone is there to look out for each other, and it is so small security is always less than a minute away.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The best thing about Santa Fe is the food. There are so many independent restaurants that there is always something new and delicious to try.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: There really isn't much to do in Santa Fe when you live there, but Albq is about an hour away and it is full of fun stuff and worth the drive once a week.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: There are more girls on campus than boys, but there are many attractive girls and boys both throughout the school. The school is very small so there is not too many people to choose from, but the people there are great!

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a nice gym on campus. It just received a large amount of new equipment, and is more than enough for the students. There are not many sports, but most of the SFUAD students are very athletic. There are several classes offered, and frequent dodgeball games. I personally find it very important to stay in shape and be fit, and the gym has more than enough to make that possible.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Santa Fe is not a college town, so the places to live are made for adults with a regular salary. The campus has apartments on the edge of it's perimeter if you do not like dorm living, but many people drive in from apartments and small houses around town.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love my school! I am a musical theater major, and I would never leave my program. I get a ton of attention from my professors, and am constantly being pushed to better my skills. All of my teachers seem to have a real passion for what they are teaching, and they have so much knowledge and experience to share.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I think SFUAD does an amazing job being strict on what is necessary. They are lenient enough to let you feel like you are living on your own and becoming an adult, but help to make you realize going to class is extremely important and strictly enforced.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: My scholarship from the PAD was the only reason I could afford to go to this school. My family does not qualify for regular financial aid, but SFUAD would have been way too expensive without all of the money the school helped me to receive.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: It is really hard to find good food on a college campus, but SFUAD does a pretty good job. There is a full salad bar and a sandwich bar with panini maker at every meal, in case you are not a fan of the regular entrée choices. There is always a vegetarian/vegan option, and they will make a plain piece of chicken for anyone who needs a very plain diet if requested.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is a little bit of everything! It is the most diverse campus I have ever been on! Everyone is very accepting of who you are and who you want to be.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: For my program it was an extremely easy process. I submitted my test scores and previous grades, wrote in an essay, and was accepted. It is such a small program that selection was non exclusive.

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Work is fairly easy, albeit a bit rushed. It is a completely new program for the school, so the need to find the correct teachers for the main courses is quite evidently an extremely strenuous task. However, so far things have worked out well. The arts management students are encouraged to help head events on campus. They are also encouraged to help out with other students who need direction from someone in a managing field. Classes are all management study fields, so are a bit drier than those studying other forms of art. But our class selection is non exclusive, allowing us to minor in another field of our choosing if we do so choose to.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Issues have arisen with the use of bleach and other harsh chemicals on and throughout campus. The need for cleaning is of utmost importance, however there are chemically ill students on campus. Even though this has been brought to the attention of the school, there have been no changes, causing one student to have made a trip to the emergency room for medical treatment and oxygen. As far as crime, there is very little, almost none, except for the occasional harmless prank.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Awesome food, even vegan choices every day.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: There's a lot of diversity, especially with International students.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Not much space unless you have a single dorm.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The meals that you do not use should carry over into the next week. Sometimes I don't use my meals all the time, I would like to keep them instead of letting them go to waste.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: make sure you get the paperwork in early and scholarship info is not presented to new students so make sure to ask about all the scholarships

3 College Junior

Computers: There are probably 4 computer labs on campus which two are reserved for specific majors. The wireless internet on campus is very unreliable .

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: people don't really use peer pressure very much on this campus and most drugs and alcohol are consumed off of the school grounds

5 College Junior

Diversity: the majority of the students on the campus fall into the categories of homosexual and/or international student
