Don't get an art degree to get a job.BrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
Don't get an art degree to get a job. Get an art degree to spend time making and studying art. I got roped really into studying art and art history, and facing the real world, ended up going into the Art Edu masters program to get a job teaching art. There were two problems with this:

1. There were and are almost no job openings for art teachers in NYS, particularly in the Syracuse-Oswego area. If someone dies, maybe or if someone really really likes you and will speak for you.

2. At that time, the art edu program did not adequately provide me with adequate skills and basic tools to be an art teacher.3. Student teaching is done at the end of the program, so you don't find out what really being in a classroom is like until the end. maybe it's different now. Theory was taught, but very little about lesson ideas, lesson planning, etc... Both the teachers I student taught under were middle aged, overweight, divorcee stoners. I thought I could teach better than them.

The school is pretty bland in terms ofBrightPsychology
The school is pretty bland in terms of the buildings. A lot of square buildings made from solid concrete - bomb shelter esque. Lots of blank white walls. LOTS of Campus Police that would love to give a ticket, but it is nice to know that they are around, should you actually need them. The 'city' is a bit far from campus, but there are two-dollar busses that are constantly running in and out. There seem to be a lot of your 'bros' around. A lot of the kids are from Long Island, Jersey, etc. and they Love their protein. It's a consistent topic of conversation for the masses. The gyms are filled with dudes that are getting off on looking at themselves lifting in the mirrors. Frats are lame. Really lame. Make your appearance around the scene for the first semester, but you will hopefully quickly realize that you are making a mistake. The lake is beautiful and very close to campus which is great in the summer and fall but abominable in the winter. If you don't like snow, it's definitely not for you. Pretty much just bail on the place, it's no good unless you're going for some sort of broadcasting jazz.
