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.

There are many off-campus dining options to choose from, and many of these locations are just right up the street from my college. From fast foods, to authentic foods, you have a variety to choose from depending on your mood and budget.
