The School of Visual Arts - Comments and Student Experiences|
I've found the social life at school to be difficult, despite many opportunities to interact with people. Maybe it's because I happen to be shy and socially awkward anyway, but a large portion of the students I've seen are either intimidating or downright rude.
The security guards in my dorm are usually helpful and even friendly. My dorm room, while it is supposedly a large single, is rather small, but since I live alone, there is enough space (albeit barely). My only real complaint about the dorms is all the NOISE from the people in the rooms around me! The walls are paper-thin here.
In person, the faculty is fairly accessible and helpful, but when I e-mail my teachers asking for help with something, they don't always respond.
For the most part, you have to buy your own art supplies. Sculpture is the only art class I have where materials are already provided. Add that to tuition costs and the price of living in NYC, and things get very expensive.I think that covers pretty much everything. Again, this evaluation is mostly based only on the Freshman Foundation program, so maybe things will be better next year, when I officially begin working on my major.
