4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

Off-Campus Dining: normally i bring food from home but its great

Guys & Girls: I love the artistic atmosphere at my school everyone has a unique style

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid helped me out with a substantial amount, but unfortunately it is not enough to cover the full tuition of a year at my school and Loans are not really an option for me because my parents credit is horrid. So i am basically on my own

3 College Sophomore

Technology: The network is an abysmal. It is slow even when I try to connect computers located at the school. Needs an overhaul.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid has gone well when I deal with people directly at the school. Although, I constantly need to check in to review the numbers because of the limited amount of income and sources I have to pay for short-term and long-term expenses.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of places to choose from for off-campus dining, except it's not a problem I hold against the school. Going out to eat is expensive regardless. I usually pack a lunch because of the money I need to save for other expenses.

2 College Freshman

Parking: Parking anywhere in Boston is a nightmare. Why any college student in Boston would want to have a car is completely beyond me.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's a really old city- you're bound to find about a million hole-in-the-wall places with scrumptious food.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Museums! Galleries! Red Sox! Cultural festivals happening all the time! Conventions! Concerts! Ballet, opera, symphony! And so on

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: So. Many. Potheads. Lots of people drink, too, as usual in college. Sure, they're annoying, but it's not totally intolerable. If you don't want to partake, that's fine too. If it happens in the dorms, though, and you get caught... You're in deep s***.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You get to build your own curriculum. Of course, there are requirements, but there's a great variety of classes you can take to fulfill those requirements. That means that you can have fun fulfilling requirements, you can take the classes you need to shape your practice how you want, to learn how to do what you think is necessary.

3 College Freshman

Campus Quality: The library is one of my favorite places at school!

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: It's so easy to go interdisciplinary here... Mixed media is the thing to do, and it really opens up your options and creativity!

4 College Freshman

Technology: Art school. All Macs. It's all good.

Internet is decent, printing is good (free B&W letter size!).

If you're in a digital media class, you use the classrooms that have computers for your use. It's not a bad idea to have your own, though.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: If you're good you can get really good merit scholarships, but the tuition is still pretty high. There are a lot of opportunities for other scholarships and grants, though, so there are a lot of options.

3 College Freshman

Weather: It's New England. Fall is beautiful, winter is cold and snowy and grey, spring is about half winter 2.0, and the summer is disgustingly hot and humid.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: As annoying as the MBTA can be at times, you really can't complain- anywhere you need to go in Boston, you can get there on the T or on a bus. If not, it's a pretty small city, so walking isn't an issue.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Being at SMFA has been a learning experience... Sexual orientations cover everything under the sun, as do political beliefs. There are international students from pretty much everywhere.. it's a very diverse campus!

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: A lack of consolidated on-campus housing leads to a lack of options. There's the Cafe at school, which is pretty good, but it's basically useless if you're not actually at school. It's not a lack of quality but rather a lack of availability.

4 College Freshman

Administration: It's art school ... Pretty much anything goes, as long as it's nothing blatantly disrespectful (to the law, to others, to your environment, etc.)
