New Hampshire Institute of Art Reviews
The community is so close here. The teachers all give such personal and individualized instruction to help EVERY student succeed. The students here are excellent and encouraging growth and great at positive and constructive criticism. I've been learning so much about myself and the way I create through this school. I highly recommend NHIA to ANY artist, especially if you're nervous about art school or your own art!
As a second semester sophomore the school is really good at starting your major right off the bat. Being able to get connections with your teachers to help you be the best that you can be and to also to improve your work as much as possible. Freshmen also get the chance to try different types of majors to build up your skills to put under your belt. The students around are friendly and open, it's a great atmosphere and lots of different events that the RAs created to help de-stress and allow students to have fun. The commuters get emails about the events and also dances too! This is a safe campus that doesn't have any of the typical college parties on campus so then you can feel safe while being in the dorms. This is a really good school that’ll help you be the best artist that you can be.
New Hampshire Institute of Art is a college run by toddlers with communication issues. My registration was held because my parent didn't fill out a promissory note and I was not notified that there was such a thing that needed to be done. This is not the only issue, I have had friends who the finance office told they had lost their money. I had one friend who got a $2,000 scholarship and instead of taking that out of her tuition, they charged her that much extra. The foundations department is a joke, nobody knows what they are doing and none of them care to even ask.
