I feel that this school has made it extremely hard for me to hold onto the passion and love that I have for the arts. I was so excited for a place that marketed itself as a small and tight knit community of driven students who strove for their own excellence as well as encouraging that of those around them. Faculty are often times unhelpful and lax distracted by whatever else holds their passion more than their job. I think thats fine but the school has a tendency to hold on to these faculty and dismiss the faculty that challenges the mediocrity that is encouraged in the school environment. It's taken all that's in me to even want to continue and just finish out my education. The only thing keeping me going is that it will end soon. There have been a few professors and peers who have made my time there at least worthwhile enough to stay and try to change the environment but this has been so discouraged by the community at large that I struggle just to hold onto my love for creative arts and what I know it can do for people when effective.

the school has its ups and downs if your not prepared to be self motivated then it may not be the school for you but this school creates many opportunities for all of its students with a wide variation of concentrations and no strict major or minor the dinning hall is not great at all not worth the money but the dorms are very nice for college dorms but having an apartment in Boston can be cheaper and more cost efficient with a kitchen. also a plus is you get your degree from tufts university or northeastern what ever program you apply to and can take advantage of both of those schoo.ls and everything they have to offer. the art sale the school has is always very successful and the school usual makes 2 million off of it and the students are able to sell any and all of their work in the sale which is really nice. The sale helps you get a fallowing starting your career as an artist.

Small class sizes and mostly very good professors. The school itself is very tiny and the facilities could be better, but the MFA and Tufts (or Northeastern) make up for this.
