3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school definitely is not perfect but the small class sizes are really great! The professors are super helpful and I have learned so much already.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have had a good experience. I've learned a ton, I've opened up and made a bunch of friends, and I like that the school is kind of small.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Joanie is amazing and helps out with career stuff... especially if you go to her for help

4 College Freshman

Academics: I am learning so much from my professors and my peers. The classes in my program have taught me so much. The liberal arts core is interesting... but sometimes they feel like basket-weaving classes...

4 College Freshman

Local Area: If you can find it, there are cool things in Santa Fe... you just need a ride to get there.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Santa Fe has great food... it's just very expensive to go out to a bunch of the restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: its a ton of work

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Breakfast is always amazing, lunch is ok, and dinner is really hit and miss.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the good options are not close to the campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most things close far too early here, and in our immediate area there are more chains than there are local places.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It really depends on what dorm or even what hall you live in.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a fair amount of scholarship money but it still isn't enough to cover a good amount of the tuition

Campus Food: It can either be pretty good or really bad and there's no way of knowing until you try it.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: A lot of money for a small space. Things break and aren't fixed in a prompt manner. There have been multiple occasions where we have had safety issues as well.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Santa fe is super expensive to live in..but the minimum wage is higher so students with jobs might have an easier time, especially if they have roommates..

Administration: The administration is incompetent. One hand does not talk to the other. There is a lot of false advertising about features of the school. They do not keep the campus safe in all ways, maintenance, and custodians.. it's santa fe so it snows a lot.. there is always pockets of black ice that no one cares to salt. I've seen so many people fall on ice just walking to class I saw two people taken by ambulance to the hospital falling in front of buildings. When I moved in to my apartment there was black once on the middle of the stairs to get to our floor my father almost broke his neck helping me move in. The cost cutting and negligence displayed by the administration has really changed my outlook on staying at the school and an understanding of why so many students transfer to other art schools instead of staying the full 4 years

Scholarships: The school is expensive and they accept everyone who finishes the application process. So if you qualify for government money they will add that to your aid package and I think depending on your portfolio and statement then look at scholarship money. But I'll say it again, expect them to tap your student loans dry. You don't have to say yes to that but then you'll be looking for 10,000 plus a year out of pocket. Make sure you want to commit is all I have to say.

Party Scene: Santa Fe is a small city made of money with not a big fun scene. One hour south is Albuquerque and they have a great live music, dance, punk, goth, geek scene.. easy to find stuff to do

1 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Another cost cutting measure.. where most college campuses have a cafeteria that is open for most of the day into later dinner hours. SFUAD'S cafe is not. Breakfast is only served for like a max 2 hour period of time which is quite early, same goes for lunch and dinner. They have the grill that's open later but uses flex points not your meal plan. The food is also pretty awful, with little variety. For a school with tuition that is so crazy high it feels like community college with ivy league tuition

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Not worth the money. False advertising about amenities. Speaking about the apartment only. They are tiny, super tiny. The bedrooms have a nice sized bathroom but it's a tiny room too. The website says that the bedrooms come with either a full or queen size bed. This is not true, they are twin beds. They also say that phone Jacks and service is provided this isn't true nor is there any cable. There are cable outlets, because they used to provide it, but got rid of it ands a cost cutting matter. If you want more than wireless you have to pay 300 for an ethernet connection in your room.

There are crazy ant problems, everywhere and goat heads.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are fast food options (Wendy's, taco bell, sonic, burger king...ect.) not too many healthy options but there is a Smiths grocery store very close to campus.

Administration: Attendance is very important and is expected. Any absence will greatly affect your grade.

Scholarships: Get FASFA done Asap! You will have more options and be at the top of the list.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Have had good and bad experiences. More bad then good. Luckily there is a salad bar if the food isn't great.
