Student Body: The students here are awesome, everyone is fun and very friendly but we're not every social and meeting new people or making friends isn't easy.

3 College Junior

Student Body: There's not much economical diversity at SVA. Your parents are either middle class and slaved over sending you here, or you have a large trust fund. Most of the school is white or Korean international students. Most people lack social ability and are generally depressed. The school is quite progressive in terms of LGBT rights and politics, but still not as much as one would expect. There are no real facilities that encourage healthy socialization between students at the school so most social interaction is done in classes. There is also a ridiculous dry campus policy even though far more than half of the student body is legal.

5 College Junior

Student Body: Really typical art students as a whole (crazy colored hair, high gay population, silly, Quirky, etc) but also a lot of people you would never know want to be artists. People of every religion. High in foreign students and new Jersey Commuters. Very much a liberal school so it might not be pleasant to talk about convervitive views with others and it's best if you have a strong skin.

3 College Freshman

Student Body: speaking of foundation year experience only:

very diverse student body, lots of international students, especially from china and south korea. classmates are generally friendly, although hard to contact outside of class. many of the students are obviously moneyed and only come here to fool around and play with their cellphones during class. they honestly distract from the classes and seem to have become so prevalent that some professors have given up and dumb down their assignments and critiques to become practically useless. most of the students suck horribly at technical drawing but style and concept is emphasized.

the student body is a huge contrast with the professors who are mostly old white men. several professors misgender trans students and condescend to international students, but the student body itself is accepting of very diverse identities.
