I'm torn about this school. As an animation major, i feel like the program i'm in is excellent and the teachers really care about you improving as an artist/animator. There's a lot the department should be improved on though, our resources are so limited and so is our equipment. However, if you're a dedicated student and are passionate about your major, you'll make the best of whats available then and there. (FYI, MAKE SURE YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR MAJOR) Bottom line is, this school has EXCELLENT programs/ helpful teachers and a lot of input in preparing you for life after art school. As for the school as a whole, DO NOT, i repeat DO NOT come here if you can't afford the massive price tag. Unless you want to swim in a massive pool of debt within 4 years, do yourself a favor and find a cheaper alternative or a school that actually gives GOOD financial aid (SVA is a for profit school so in other words, their financial aid SUCKS and 80% of students are here on loans). I made the mistake of coming here regardless of money issues because this was my top choice and now I have to transfer out after this year because of finances. CAMPUS- There is none. If you're looking for a 'traditional college experience' with a campus and whatnot, you wont find it here. NYC is your campus, which is super exciting if you're not from here already (which i am lol) So get ready for a 20 minute walk from the east side of the city to the west side of the city to get from one class to another (we have shuttle busses that are super unreliable and come only when the bus driver feels like showing up) DORMS- There are five dorm buildings, One is for strictly freshmen and transfer students right next to the main building, nice looking for VERY tight space. One is for all four years and its the second closest to the school buildings, but it's a roachfest. One is for all girls and the other two are nice but far from the campus and require public transportation to get to class SOCIAL LIFE- Sucks. Some majors get a ton more work than others, and sometimes enough work to tie you down to your desk while others get to party. The student body is split into (from what ive observed): -International students that don't know much english so befriend those that speak the same native language as them (understandable) - Those who are too enveloped in their work to care about socializing - Those who drink and smoke 24/7 - Really shy & antisocial people - Super cool and friendly people who flake - Openminded people Other than that, theres no greek life so dont expect any frat parties. If you're lucky enough to afford housing your first year or are a super social commuter, you'll probably know a few people that go on to rent apartments somewhere in brooklyn their second year and onward and throw a couple of apartment parties. Overall, this schools what you manage make of it, just like any other college. Speaking from experience, WORK HARD, and BE SOCIAL WITH EVERYONE, and you'll be fine.
