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.

Pratt changed my life. It's beyond the best school ever. I could won a lot of competitions under my professor's instruction. During school years I could have so many chances working in various companies located in Manhattan which is the center of the world! After graduation, I got a job in Manhattan. Now I am a creative director in New York. I love Pratt so much and appreciate everything from Pratt.
Pratt is a mess. I am graduate architecture student and whoever runs facilities there is extremely ignorant and is wasting everybodys time. Things could've been managed more efficient. There is a paper sign up sheet to laser cut? Whole world already figured out how to use simple online booking system. It is disrespectful to charge ridiculous amount of money and make you wait entire day to cut your file. Other schools solved that. Pratt is outdated and old-school, not “experimental and innovative” as the market themselves.
