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.

I could easily say that it is a good school, that is if I’m talking only about the actual school. The only thing you do in this school is learn learn and learn, great teachers. However if your looking for a school that will have social life this isn’t it. This school is very serious about learning, leaving little time to make friends. But I love how all the teachers focus on you and get you to where you want to be!
Parsons School of Design has so much to offer from great food, excellent staff, an endless choice of resources such as wood shops, 3D printing , laser cutters, a great print shop. I have learned so much already in the short time I have been attending this school and there is never a day that I go home without learning something new. This is school is also placed in one of the most interesting and creative city's in the world New York City. Other than the location one of my favorite things about this university is the diversity of unique individuals that attend this school. Every person attending parsons has a drive to do great things and to find themselves weather that be as a musician, artist or writer. These are only some of the amazing things about Parsons that make it such a great institution for not only learning but growth as an individual.
