Pratt Institute Reviews
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.
I love my school! The best thing about Pratt Institute are its faculty. I feel that the Professors genuinely care about their students and help in any way they can to help us succeed. The cost of attending Pratt is rather high, however I receive a substantial amount of financial aid but even that does not cover the entire tuition.
So far, I really enjoy attending Pratt Institute. Classes are nice, professors allow creative freedom with some guidelines, and good critics. Gen. Eds. are alright, variety of classes to fulfill requirements. Foundation year was fine but wish there had been a major specific option. I commute, but from experience in the dorms, some are better than others due to aging dorms. Campus food is alright, decent options. It's good somedays and average others. Student body has good diversity. Plenty of extra circular activities to partake in. Greek life is small but present and active. The party scene isn't big like state schools but there are parties that happen every weekend for the most part. Clinton Hill is a great neighborhood nowadays, crime is low, nothing like the past Brooklyn of the 90s, especially Mrytle Avenue. Up to now, Pratt has been a great experience.
