Overall Experience: Watkins is a place were you are constantly being pushed to challenge yourself. Like most things, you get out what you put in, so, if you are interested in creating a serious artistic practice, this program is really helpful. Students get their own senior show - which is unheard of at a larger school- and are ready to exhibit when they graduate. Most students are exhibiting off campus even before they graduate. Its a very nurturing environment and the faculty are all professional artists.

Administration: Think of it as the north and south after the civil war, there's a barrier of communication and transparency in the administration.

Academics: There's definitely a steep learning curve in some classes and that makes advancing and really learning difficult which can make the class seem like a waste of time. This happens often be sure of the lack of students and classes being dropped.
