so incredibly glad I came to the music conservatory at
Purchase College. It was the best decision Ive ever
made. At first I was skeptical of the program,
but now I realize this is the best program in
the country for vocal performance/opera undergrad majors, and I am
so completely loving every aspect of the program and highly
recommend it. The program is top, the professors are
extremely acknoledgeable ( not to mention helpful, adorable, and hilarious!
)and the classes are interesting. My voice teacher is
incredible, and my lessons and art song class are definitely
the highlight of my week. I've learned so much
here in the past few months, and cannot wait to
continue this exciting journey. I cannot say enough good
things about the opera program here!
I think about everything else: I've have met the
most incredible friends here and feel very welcome. Yes,
every day at purchase college is halloween; people dress crazy,
but that is what makes this campus different, diverse, and
weirdly interesting.( Ok, more straight guys are needed) It's
just close enough to the city, and good access to
A few things that need improvement: hm,
can we say FOOD?! Let me just say, I regret
taking a meal plan. The first time I ate
at the dining hall, I was stuck in the bathroom

Terre ve is alright, but they don't have alot
of options. Ritazza has quite good desserts, and the
Hub is alright. Of course, I am already sick
of the mushy chicken and rotten veggies. The food needs
The dorms need to be fixed up, as
well as the builings and the buildings doors. ( very
heavy) Apparently, purchase college was on the news the other
day for worst college dorms. campus is beautiful in
the fall, but no other time.
services needs to get their act together.
On another note,
theres very little to do for fun at night on
campus. Most of the time we say “ hm,
what do you guys want to do? “ “
hm , whats going on around campus?” “ hm, nothing
as usual”. and spend an hour figuring out what
to do. by the time we decide to do
something, no one wants to do anything but sleep.
Needs to have more social activities! MORE PARTIES! More
nightlife! More classic college nightlife!!!!!!!!
Also, people in the opera
department can get very gossipy. But, after all that,
I love it here and wouldn't trade this opportunity or
the people Ive met for anything. this is best
school for my major and is fabulous. I love
