3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: the classes are long. Studio classes are almost 6 hrs and sometimes the teachers will keep you during lunch but its all worth while and productive.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: I havent looked into that yet

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's tons of places to eat around Pratt and a lot of them are cheaper than the stuff they sell in the cafeteria. Theres lots of types of food, mexican, japanese, thai, chinese, american, italian, all within around 10 minutes of the campus but if your lazy, you can always order take out.

3 College Freshman

Administration: You need a ID to get into anywhere, (besides East hall, its probably so old they figure people wouldnt want to break in). A lot of the gates have a revolving door to access the building and a lot of the dorms need ID's too but if your carrying a crap load of art supplies it gets annoying.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Like most people I received the presidential merit scholarship which was around $19,000 BUT honesty it doesn't seem like enough. At first it seems like a large sum of money but the cost of Pratt without the scholarship is $60,000 which is something I would never pay for the quality of services. The school lacks materials and resources, for explain my LCD teacher had to fight for new easels which I assumed every art school would already have. the resource center is tiny. The school is small and all of the buildings are ancient. The scholarship is a lot like the discount that kohls gives out which is really just a sham that overprices things just to add a "discount," so people think they're getting a deal. I did get a tiny additional scholarship of $3,000 which is the only reason why its just okay.

Campus Food: I dont eat much and the freshman meal plan defintely isnt for me. I was forced to pick one and I got the smaller plan but I still had around $300 dollars at the end of the 1st semester that I had left to spend, and I would've had even more if I didn't go to the C-store almost every week. The food from the Cafeteria is almost never hot, maybe slightly warm, and there isn't a large amount of variety. The pie shop does have fresher food like rice bowls and crepes but the pizzas are usually cold and they dont always heat them up long enough. The largest problem I have with the campus food is that it is too overpriced. I could easily go to myrtle and find another 20 restaurants that are cheaper and fresher and healthier but I can't go there because I was forced to get a meal plan

Campus Housing: I may be wrong about this but I believe all the freshman dorms have the same cost which is completely unfair if you live in the Can. I was lucky enough to have the room almost always to myself in the first semester but there is barely any walking room or free space. The room I have also has an incredibly squeaky floor. The walls are thin and the lounges are tiny on the first floor, but if your lucky they'll have this place torn down because it is temporary.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: At the upstate NY campus, The Tram is a cafe just down the street. They have vegetarian options, great prices, and poetry nights and open mic nights.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: A large amount of students at the upstate NY campus receive decent merit scholarships. Many of those students receive more money after their freshman year.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: You need to find the right place, at the right time for the right price.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I haven't explored many options off campus however others have and seem to love it.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office and bursar has a way of avoiding answering the phone and calling you back. In fact, my financial aid officer in particular has messed my finances up in particular with false information and constantly shows a lack of interest. From fellow classmates complaints I would assume most of the office is the same way. For the price of Pratt, it is disappointing and upsetting.

College Freshman

Party Scene: I have not gone to a college party. I have absolutely no knowledge on where, or when they happen.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The staff is considerably nice for the work that they do. The food varies from time to time, but there are always options

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Horrible draft, cold. no wifi, horrible maintenance

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I got a Presidential Merit Scholarship to Pratt straight out of high school, and I haven't applied to more since.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Don't party too hard, kids. If you get lower than a 2.0 GPA at Pratt, they'll expel you.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: As soon as you can, get rid of your meal plan. It's good for packaged snacks and drinks, so it's nice to have when you have the munchies. But for real food you could get much better, more nutritious food from the surrounding neighborhood at a lower price than $15 for a plate of food and a drink.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Although dorm living is thousands of dollars cheaper than renting an off-campus apartment, there are cockroaches and rodents that infest all of the dorms. Calling facilities usually resolves this pest problem. I live in ELJ dorm and I'd say it's the best on campus despite the fact that it was built in 1957 and it doesn't have air conditioning (and the heating system is extremely loud, hot as hell, and you can't switch it off). Never live in Willoughby Hall unless you enjoy the constant sound of loud drunken parties. If you have a noise problem, call the RA on Duty. They're available 24/7.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Because Pratt is an art school, no one really knows we exists. Being a part of Greek life has been an empowering experience so far. Greek life at Pratt is great for students who want to feel a part of a community.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I do not participate in any athletic related involvement.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have never really looked into off-campus housing because I find the dorms the best choice for me because of proximity. I have been to student's apartments who live off campus and they live in a variety of poorly maintained spaces, average spaces, and very well/newer spaces.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: You can get tired of a lot of the places near by it you go to them often. There are limited reasonable priced quality food.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The only policy that is difficult to accommodate is if a student is absent more than 3 times is an automatic failure. Some professors do not accept certain letters for an excused absence. Some professors need to be more accommodating to their students.
