I went for a campus tour, and the experience was great! The reception was very nice, got us on a tour very fast. Two tour guides (students studying at Pratt) took us on a 2-hour tour, answering our questions while giving great information about the institution. The campus is beautiful, definitely a calm getaway from the busyness of New York city, with inspiring sculptures around a very green area. The studios looked very professional, and the security system is very fast and trustworthy.
Review Pratt Institute
Pratt is amazing in just about every way. Work is challenging but manageable. Profs are mostly accessible and know what their doing. Dorms are good, great if you consider the fact you get to live in the heart of Brooklyn! Food is fine, you can always step off campus when you need a change. Campus is adorable. And I love the hipsters. They are not pretentious and most are pretty smart.
Pratt Institute, from my time being here so far, is a wonderful school. All of my instructors are well-versed in their field and active in their respective field, bringing experience with them as a supplement to the concepts they teach. They're always willing to help, and they're open to new ideas and ways to solve problems. The campus is gorgeous, however some of the freshman dorms could be improved- Cannoneer Court specifically does not have "work rooms" properly equipped to deal with art students' demands. There are no sinks to wash out brushes and paint without clogging the drain, there are a limited number of desks, there are only two rooms designated for work- so they get crowded fast. Also, sometimes the administration can either be slow or ineffective, and some of the hours of somewhat important resources, the nurse especially, are incredibly inconvenient to the average student's schedule.
