I like that Parsons encourages their students to discover other art fields, not just their own major by the wide range of the general education classes-3d design, history, drawing, sounds/video production, etc. It helps me discover other art fields, as I have never encountered these majors prior to my college experience. Although Parsons is one of the schools within the New School, it feels very disconnected from the school at its entirety. Parsons feels like it own school. However, I feel that there is no community at this school. It is very hard to connect with other students--this college is very "clique-oriented." I would like to see more welcoming and a greater variety of school clubs. As Parsons is located in the center of the city (Manhattan), it would be nice to take advantage of greater bonding experiences at museums, art galleries, etc.
