I would strongly suggest that if you knowEducation
I would strongly suggest that if you know anyone that is applying for this school or if you are planning to apply yourself that you run for the hills. The professors are great, with the exception of a few, and they are dedicated to the subjects they teach and the students they teach it to. The real issue with the school is the administration. The current administration, there have been over 3 presidents of the school over the past 5 years, has resorted to some dirty and undermining tricks in order to "fix" a deficit that has been well known by the administration for years. There has been no effort or action taken, until recently, to attempt to address or fix the issues the school has been facing and even still the administration has made some poor decisions. Unfortunately the faculty and students are left to deal with the brunt of the consequences while the administration continues to live in luxury appointed by their idiotic decision making. Because of the administrations mismanagement of funds many important programs that the school was known for have been cut leaving many of the faculty jobless without warning. Amenities and opportunities that were once afforded to students have been cut without a mention or even formal email by the administration. Not only is the administration of the school corrupt they are also extremely incompetent and unqualified for the positions they have. Every little thing requires a tedious back and forth between students and administration with a ton of beating around the bush that most of the time leads to nowhere and the initial problem never being resolved. As an alumni of the school I feel as if the if the administration over the past few years has done a horrible job of upholding the values of this once respectable school and have done an injustice to the schools community. If this is your school of choice I strongly advise that you reconsider.

The hours of theAverageMusic Education
The hours of the Massry Center are absurd for music majors. How do they expect their students to succeed with such limited hours of practice? Additionally, security is useless and unwilling to aid the students who pay an unreasonable amount of money to go there in the first place!

This school is okay, I am glad theyNot so brightEducation
This school is okay, I am glad they offer a variety in early childhood, education and speech pathology programs.

However, the cost is outrageous, as is with all private schools and I wish the tutiton could be lowered and more financial aid could be offered. However, it is good that this school offers such programs which are found no where else in the Capital District. The small classroom size of no more than 15 students is great. The campus itself is three buildings, which makes everything much easier to find. However, make sure you watch your back, after all this is right in the heart of Albany, where there is much crime on the nearby streets. Security is great though, there 24 hours and respond qucikly, like back in December - there was a man who wondered into the campus center from the street. The man then went into the campus center womens restroom and he sat in the stall for 45 to 60 minutes, trying to talk to female students in the neighboring stalls as they relieved themselves, this man even tried to pose as a girl, by highering his voice and introducing himself as a girl's name. Thankfully, security came and removed him from campus. I am so glad that security takes matters like this seriosuly and offers such great services.
