3 College Freshman

Administration: advisors aren't very helpful

also these are ridiculous options

-officers are kind and helpful

-they are pretty easy to get along with if you respect them

-they're only interested in breaking up the fun

-they treat everyone like criminals

i've had many encounters at the security desks where the men have made fun of me or have made jokes to each other making fun of a question i have or something i have said. i also have seen them staring inappropriately at female students. so in a survey like this i wouldn't assume that they are always respectful or that they would treat us like criminals. our student body doesn't have a violent or rebellious reputation

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: i am so grateful for my full tuition scholarship but i still give it 2/5 because i know many people who aren't as lucky as me but still deserve it

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: theres usually something to satisfy everyone but it could be better. the downstairs cafe is pointless and a waste of money. the french pastries are glorified, aren't that good, and overpriced. i can make all of that myself and it would taste better honestly

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: small expensive and no kitchens

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Parsons is the best! What else can I say?!

Off-Campus Housing: off campus is so much better. you'll end up paying for a single bedroom for yourself, around $800-$1200 a month and you get your own room, a shared large kitchen. living room, and sometimes even rooftop access, and of course, location is key. the farther away from campus, the cheaper the rent! but there's a plethora of options! only thing that sucks is you NEED to have good credit and if you don't, you MUST have a guarantor that has good credit and makes 40x the rent!

Off-Campus Dining: It's NYC. You can eat a different restaurant every day of the year and it would take you 5+ yrs to have eaten at all of them.

Party Scene: Looking to experience the NYC night life? text me at 9 one 7 four 4 nine 3 eight 2 zero. Free drinks for my guests, no cover for ladies

4 College Junior

Administration: security is very friendlly, with me at least. As long as you're respectful and kind, you should have no problem with them.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: delicious, organic, and a variety of food! worth the price!

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It is hard to find the one that you like.

Administration: they are very strict about attendance which can be slightly annoying. but otherwise it's good.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: They make an offer and won't change it even if your grades increase / gain additional accomplishments. But they gave me a decent amount.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There is no "party scene" at Parsons / the New School but clubs and bars are excellent in NYC.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is really good, compared to many other schools. There are a lot of vegetarian and organic options. It is a little pricy.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: A good place to meet people but I would not stay for long.

3 College Student

Administration: it's ok. my school is overly progressive so it's kind of conflict of interest for it to be strict
