3 College Student

Health & Safety: The campus is spread throughout New York City, and even though I have not heard any first-hand experiences from my class, I do know that sexual assault can happen very easily here. There is sufficient security on campus, but the campus is a limited area, and there is quite some distance between some dorms and the main campus center.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: My first year living in the dorms is this year. The dorms are priced ridiculously high, but hopefully I will be able to be an RA next year and have my fee waived. If not, I am not sure what I'll be able to do in terms of living in New York City.

Overall Experience: The possibility of graduating with debt is daunting, but overall there is no better place to be if you want to be in the field of fashion, as I do. Hopefully it will pay off in the end.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: A waste of time and money.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's new york so it's going to be small. It is super expensive so i'm moving off campus next year.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really dislike parsons, I'm currently just a freshmen but it was the most wasted year of my life. the foundation year is waaaaay to easy. We take pointless classes with teachers who don't care. it is almost imposable to get the classes you want. The school operates as a business and does not care about it's students.I have had a lot of great opportunities in new york and none of them were because of parsons, I got them myself. Honestly it's such a disappointment I spent so much money siting around doing nothing.

Health & Safety: The health office does not always respond when I try calling them.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Career services are very helpful.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Some of the buildings are old

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I do not like people here.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus is very safe since there is lots of securities in all over area, they have CCTV everywhere I guess.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Very talented students, passionate professors, great facilities for design students. But it's very expensive school since it's located one of the hot area in the New York City, somewhat very tough to international students since they may be your out of budget. They gave scholarship based on your talent not your need if your international student. Anyway it's the best design school in US, so you will learn a lot in here.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It really depends on which dorm your living. Some dorm is very excellent since their bathroom or sharing space is very clean and nice, but some dorms are not. All colleges do, upper class dorm has best quality.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I WISH I TOOK CLASSES REGARDING MY DESIRED MAJOR AS SOON AS I SET FOOT IN MANHATTAN.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They provide health insurance but its extra money out of the student's pocket and may not even be real legit. Theres a lot of fine print in regards to New School Insurance.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have no idea what the hell I'm going to do after school, career wise.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Parsons for sure pumps out great students, but is too pricey, especially considering they don't supply the abundant amount of supplies that they request you have. Workload is manageable, but like everything else regarding freshman year of school, extremely stressful. First year housing is very decent.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The amount you pay for such a small space shared with so many people is ridiculous in my opinion. might as well rent an apartment

Overall Experience: Parsons is an innovative and creative school. The foundation classes are very helpful and provide guidance for when you are ready to declare a major.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Parsons is very design and art concentrated, so if you have a lot of interests, think twice. The choices of choosing different classes is very difficult once chosen a field. There are liberal arts electives but limited. The atmosphere is very artsy as well, which means you won't meet a variety of kids of different backgrounds and interests. But if you are into fashion and high-end luxury aesthetics, it is the right fit. Professors are experienced though, they care a lot about teaching and open for help to students. But it is not the typical college life, so be careful.
