I am a very proud Parsons student! Parsons lives up to its credibility as one of the top art and design schools in the country. Parsons fosters a dynamic, creative, and sustainable community through its professors and courses. It pushes its students to think outside the box and consider wicked problems that world is facing.

I love it at Parsons. The atmosphere, how international it is, the new york city environment which promotes intense creative work! I highly recommend it.
Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good school with great resources and facilities. But I think foundation year is bull shit. As a photography major you don’t get to take any photography classes. No one gets to take a class directly pertaining to their major unless you’re in fine arts, then you’re just lucky. Some professors are better than others and in general I like them.

I cannot stress enough how much I hate foundation year! Why do I have to take a drawing class if I’m never going to draw again? Waste of money.
