I love going to The New School. It is perfectly located in Manhattan, the Professors are wonderful, and all the students are so creative and ambitious. I am having a hard time paying tuition, however, so that is the downfall.

I appreciate that SUNY Empire has provided me the opportunity to attend school while still working as a full time employee in addition to working a part time job. I have been struggling to complete school since my parents haven't helped me financially since I was 15. SUNY Empire provides an affordable education with the ability to remain flexible with the busy schedule of those who cannot afford to attend school without working a full-time job or several jobs. The professors are understanding and very helpful. Not to mention, the mentors at Empire strive to provide students with the easiest and most efficient degree plan uniquely designed to fit the lifestyle of each individual student.
