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.

I absolutely love this school, being that my professors are all very unique and interesting, giving us eye-opening and educational tasks and projects, but also the school, in general, provides us with so many opportunities, services, and machinery to work with when designing and creating. What I'm not 100% happy with is the First Year Classes that we are obliged to take that have no relation to our actual major. I would like it if I could have a type of 'Foundation Year', where I could have a taste of every major, so that I can decide what major to pursue in the following years.
Parsons is a relatively diverse school, with students from many places all over the world, but recently changes have been applied to the curriculum, and many students have been complaining, that many professors are not providing what they need to for our learning. But then again there are also many students who don't try hard to earn that learning... Of course, there are some great professors and courses as well
