4 College Freshman

Facilities: I love SVA and it is a great school. It's just very expensive and there is no meal plan included and no official dining hall. So as students we have to buy and prepare all our own food which can add up. Also we have to buy all our own supplies and because this is an art school in New York City it gets extremely expensive. Other than that SVA provides amazing facilities to work in and everything is updated to the newest technology and students can rent out amazing equipment. All the teachers are working professionals and they are extremely knowledgable about what they teach. SVA provides so many opportunities to get our work in exhibitions so professionals can see our work and we can get internships and then get jobs. SVA has a name for themselves in the art world and even saying that we're graduates can get us opportunities in the professional community.

Academic Flexibility: My undergrad at The University of Rhode Island was an incredible learning experience, and placed me on track to continue my education in grad school. The Communication Studies program is top notch, having some of the most respected professionals in the field teaching teaching students.

Academic Experience: The curriculum here but I wish the classes met more than once a week. There's so much information that we don't go over because of the lack of class meetings.

Academic Experience: I love the curriculum I have learned a lot since I've been here.

Campus Resources: The library has many resources but I feel like it doesn't have enough.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Resources: Using the computers aren't bad but they need more powerful computers in the photography department. The ones they have seem to have trouble with intermediate tasks in some applications.

Student Body: Most students just do the assignments and complain about them not being what they want to do instead of making the assignments work for them.

Career Services: It is kind of vague, I wish there were post-grad options that were more thorough.

Tuition & Financial Aid: Most classes you learn a lot and make the tuition reasonable compared to an education elsewhere. However, some classes are just plain useless and teach you information you either already know or you could learn off the internet.

Academic Experience: CompAnimation is crazy but it can be fun at times.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: There are a few professors who cannot teach.

2 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: I applied late therefore I wasn't applicable for any in-school scholarships, but seeing how my family's EFC is 0. They expect me to magically pay 20,000$ out of pocket. But your mind and education is your biggest investment.

Campus Resources: The library is big and has a great variety. The student center is not great. They should've fixed the elevators instead of the student center.

4 College Junior

Campus Resources: We have unlimited printing. The wifi is fast and secure.
