5 College Student

Overall Experience: I am going to study in School of Visual Arts this fall and I will major in design. There are so many reasons why I love SVA. The main reason is that the professors there are all professional and the students there are extraordinary and inspiring.I have been to NYC once and I visited SVA,.The dense art atmosphere really appeals to me and that moment I swear I'll be one of them one day. Actually I am a transfer student to SVA. Before entering to SVA,I majored economics in Waseda University,Japan.But I just couldn't give up my dream and I decided to follow my heart. Fortunately, I got in and I really want to cherish this chance. SVA is unique because of his location, the professional and outstanding professors and the creative students.NYC is a city that full of chances and especially for artists.I love art and in SVA, art is everywhere.Students all work in different directions and they can really inspire each other.If I have another chance to choose university,I will definitely say "SVA!" again. When I apply to university in America,I only apply to SVA.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school is a little interesting because it does not have a campus. If I were to choose a school again, I would love to choose a school with a campus. To be honest, it was a big pain to move across the city to class. The shuttle bus is not too reliable.

3 College Junior

Academic Experience: The best instructors will really make you think about the practicality and application of your work in addition to the quality of your illustrations. Illustration is not a major where you just do without thinking. It is definitely not a program for the lazy. I recommend to really be on top of your work and get along with the professors.

3 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: For first-years, they give you foundation blocks, which are streamlined but inflexible. As the years go on you have more freedom. Make sure to choose your desired block early!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most of the professors know what they're doing. The ones who aren't living up to expectations are very receptive to feedback. They are working professionals up to date in the industry.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are regular visits by major companies as well as opportunities to work freelance. In the computer art department, it is often said that one can never work anywhere without running into a fellow SVA alum.

5 College Freshman

Academic Experience: It's strict. Nothing below a C grade passes. The workload can be tough sometimes, especially with the honors program, but there's nothing meaningless about the work. Huge companies like Cartoon Network and Pixar scout SVA regularly and are amazing sources of information on jobs and internships.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love being in NYC! The computer art department, while strict, taught me many things about 3D animation in just my first semester. Paired with the honors program, I've learned more in my one semester here than in all of high school. The stress is so worth it.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: Before starting school in the fall there were many different schedule options to choose from. It was convenient for me because I'm not a morning person, so in the fall I was able to make sure all of my classes didn't start before 12, and I was able to have Fridays off which made visiting home on the weekends easier. However, in the spring all electives are at 9am and there is a required course at 9am, so for the people (like me) who aren't good at focusing in the morning, it can be a disadvantage.

5 College Freshman

Career Services: There are many alumni from this school who have become very successful and have jobs in what they've studied.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Almost all of my professors have been great people who know so much about what they teach. There isn't a lot of opportunity for electives for first year students, but after our first year there are so many different courses to take that really focus on what interests a student has. Class sizes can be big, but are small enough so each student can be focused on during critiques.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I was someone who came in knowing very little, but ended up learning a lot. Also, the teachers are all people who work in the field that they teach, so they can give us real advice based on real life experiences.

Academic Flexibility: It is pretty okay I think. The advisor used to be kind of unfriendly with students but we changed a new one recently and he is super nice.
