College Junior

Online Courses: We don't have the option of taking online courses.

3 College Junior

Facilities: We don't have drinking fountains and a bottle of water is $2.

3 College Junior

Career Services: I don't really know much, but sometimes great internship opportunities are presented.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: Mostly the teachers are the problem. They don't seem to have a grasp on what they're doing. It's very extreme; either some really do or some really don't. Some male teachers are sexist and some teachers are racist. The head of the department only comes out of his office to go to industry parties. Sometimes if they remember, great internship opportunities are emailed to the students.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The teachers are not that great. They're sometimes really vague in class and then expect you to be super specific in your papers. The class registration process is confusing and even the academic advisors don't have a grasp on it.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: It's a lot of the average teachers they hire. But there are some internship opportunities that they email you about.

3 College Junior

Student Body: The dorm kids usually stink together and the commuting kids barely get to meet one another because we commute.

2 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: I had to have my old high school teacher email the president of the college to get my art history credits transferred. My academic advisor is some times rude and not in her office even when you make appointments. She doesn't know what credits I need and I'm left to figure out what classes I need to take in order to graduate. She doesn't keep track very well and is unorganized.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: I really wish we a freshmen actually had studios in the dorms, or at least another study room that's open 24/7 like most other colleges. There's a basement in the New Residence but there's usually a TV blaring and music playing so that's not the best study environment, and there's a limited number of easels to work with.

College Freshman

Career Services: I haven't had enough communication with the career services to give a rating.

College Freshman

Online Courses: There are no online courses to least to my knowledge. SVA offers a free online language course though now.

5 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The library is awesome, tons of stuff to choose from.

4 College Freshman

Campus Resources: The computer labs are awesome and I haven't had printing problems. The internet in the dorms goes in and out though.

College Freshman

Online Courses: We don't have online courses at the School of Visual Arts

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I picked my block schedule and that's all.

1 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: They didn't answer my phone calls and messed up my billing. I'm hardly getting aid. I'm learning a lot but the price is outrageous.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: Computer art is very close knit and awesome.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: The job prospects are great from SVA. We have a lot of connections for internships and jobs in the future. The teachers are all working professionals and know a lot about the job market and constantly give us advice.

Career Services: I haven't looked into any of this yet.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is great and I'm going to get a great education, but the social life is lacking. There are plenty of clubs and events but no one goes to them.

3 College Freshman

Academic Experience: I am currently in my foundation year and so I have to take required fine art classes. And I like it but I really don't like painting class. I hate how I have to take two semesters of it. Although I do like my other classes. They are great.

3 College Freshman

Tuition & Financial Aid: You really need to get your stuff in really early. But this one lady at the financial aid office is sooo nice. She's great and really tries to help you out in any way she can. Of course since there are so many students, there's a long wait time with emails and phone calls.

Campus Resources: I really love how there is a shuttle bus that takes you around to the different buildings (not all of them, but the major area). It makes it easy to travel through the crowded city with artwork and to get to classes that are across the city. It just sucks that it only comes every hour or so.
