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.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: They have own career site it's good to seek jobs.

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.

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

5 College Freshman

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.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: School offers resources for career, and NYC is full of opportunities. But the school is already stressful enough, I hardly have time to explore those intern opportunities.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The school provides lots of services regarding health and safety and our school buildings are extremely safe due to security guards and other security facilities. But the "campus" is still new york streets so they are not like protected or enclosed, therefore you still need to be very careful. I oftentimes feel kind of scared off by NYC streets.

2 College Senior

Campus Housing: I don't know how others will feel like about the housing here, but it is pretty bad in my opinion to be honest. The rooms are tiny! Like tiny tiny! By NYC standard it is even way too bad. Nyu dorms are better even. Many students move out after a semester or two. It is unbearable.

Greek Life: No Greek life. It's life on your own.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel like I have learned a lot, since the attendance policy is very very strict so I have always spent time at school and doing homework. It is a lot of work. Sometimes I feel like I have no balance as a student. And NYC is very stressful for a student, so I think it's been a roller coaster experience overall.

Athletics: Not much athletic programs, which is understandable since it's an art school but still.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Very challenging, but you learn so much and you meet great people.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: So far, is been a great experience. I'm learning a lot and I'm making connections. I only wish it weren't so expensive!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Administration can be unnecessarily confounding and unhelpful, and in general it is hard to reach out to advisors. Furthermore, being a dual-degree seeking student, I found the lack of clarity about the program really troubling and frustrating at times. Despite all this, I've loved my experience here so far (I just finished my first year) and I can't wait to return in the fall. The professors are incredibly talented and intelligent. Likewise the brilliant students really pushed me to do my best and work hard. I feel like I'm learning a lot and I'm looking forward to taking advantage of more opportunities the school offers.

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

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
