Pratt Institute Reviews
Pratt is a really good school! I love being in Brooklyn but still having a physical campus with a green space. I especially love the Pratt cats that live on campus, they're super cute. The majority of the classes I've taken are very challenging but in a good way. It's important to push yourself in these classes and make them what you want them to be. A lot of assignments are open-ended and have room for interpretation - use that to your advantage and make your assignments things you would want to see in your portfolio.
While the campus, a nature and cat lover's dream, seems like a perfect little heaven in the middle of Brooklyn....I personally found the environment of Pratt a bit toxic. In general, the professors and classes were above average, but the students just have a toxic vibe which lessens the experience. The culture surrounding is lovely though! A personal negative was how the campus, although gorgeous, was quite small...it was easy to just never leave the campus and feel trapped (although if you make yourself, go out and explore...Brooklyn is cool!). Some of the building lack air conditioning, which is particularly aggravating on those humid hot Brooklyn days.
Absolutely Wonderful! Although we're only online right now, they have done an amazing job of creating a sense of community.
