4 College Sophomore

Tuition & Financial Aid: My financial aid adviser has been endlessly helpful in assisting me, even with private loans which were outside of her jurisdiction. She has always broken the otherwise overwhelming process down to understandable and manageable chunks, and I'm always able to talk to someone if I swing by even without making an advance appointment.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: People I've known have been able to transfer classes easily- I found all of mine so valuable and interesting that I never felt the need.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services: I know of students breaking into fields straight out of college, and some without even finishing their degrees. It's a huge advantage having a faculty that consists of working professionals with all their own experience and networks.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body: A lot of the students have exceptional skill- it encourages us to keep up.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I've been challenged and joined professional groups. Teachers are helpful and enlightening. The workload can get intense if you don't manage it right, but this forces adaptation to good habits.

5 College Sophomore

Academic Experience: I've enjoyed the diversity of options I could take. Many professors encouraged me to branch out into new fields and develop programs I'd never thought of before.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every class I had challenged me to think beyond the normal way. The school is famous for offering the same courses with a whole new approach. I felt like I not only learned technique and skill, but how to think.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: SVA professors are experts in their fields. The very action of going to the school offers excellent networking opportunities and faculty members have been personally responsible for placing students in jobs.

College Sophomore

Online Courses: I'm unfamiliar with online courses they offer.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources: I didn't live in the dorms and there wasn't a dining hall, but the library was great, and everyone I've used as a resource at the admissions or advisement or aid offices has been very helpful.

3 College Student

Tuition & Financial Aid: I've been waiting for a call back for over a week. Have left a few messages for them to call back.

4 College Student

Career Services: They have so many different opportunities for jobs and internships.

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.

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.

3 Recent Alumnus

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.

3 Recent Alumnus

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

4 Recent Alumnus

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.
