Cooper Union Reviews
Review Cooper Union
The Cooper Union is unique in that it is comprised of a small student body relative to other schools, so there is a close knit relationship among the students and faculty. Cooper used to offer all students free tuition, but has recently changed due to an unfortunate financial climate. However, the experiences with students and professors is still invaluable and the reputation gained after graduating from this school is invaluable.
The school is absolutely amazing. It's very niche, as it is a tiny school and has only art and conservation students, but it brings a lot of interdisciplinary work to the table and it provides amazing opportunities for all the students to work together and outside of the school in their given field. The idea of creating a community is most important, and everyone helps each other in realizing their potential and goals.
This must be one of the best schools in the United States. Had an unexplainably life changing experience here, and I suspect I am not alone on this. Any friend in college I have spoken to seems shocked and envious of the experience I describe at Cooper. Plus it is a free school. Hands down one of the most challenging, rigorous, enriching, and inspiring opportunities of my life.
