Campus Aesthetics/ Beauty
Being in Manhattan has both pros and cons. The pros is that it is a great place for a college student. Lots of stuff to do and eat. It is truly a city that never sleeps. The cons are that it is more expensive to live their than that of many other cities, and you need to be a mature student to live in a big city. There is no campus per se and no coddling of students.
Workload is VERY high. Expect to put in many all nighters if you want to really get out of SVA what you need to get. However, the work will be worth it.
Also, SVA allows students to take courses in other majors. Take advantage of this.
Don't stay in any dorms after freshmen year. Dorms are expensive and crappy as noted in reviews. Get an apartment with friends.
Main problem with SVA is the tuition. It is high, and they are NOT known for giving decent scholarships. Thus, if you can't afford the tuition, don't come here. Go somewhere cheaper. However, if you can afford it because you have rich parents, SVA will give a great education and will inculcate the skills needed for the industry!
