    College Freshman: I am a second semester freshman at The New Hampshire Institute of Art. I was warned at orientation that the workload is heavy and a lot of students do not come back the following year due to the intensive workload. I personally have found extreme improvements in my finished pieces, work ethic, time management skills, and I am better at taking on tasks I know I can handle. Although, as a freshman I have to take foundation classes, I have looked at classes available and there is such large variety. Even though I am a Fine Arts major, I can take other classes such as calligraphy, which is mandatory for Graphic Design majors and vise versa. I love all the instructors also. You connect to each of them quickly with small classroom numbers. You are treated an equal by calling instructors by their first name. I feel very comfortable to ask questions and get hands on help, while still receiving mutual respect for one another. I personally have seen such a big improvement in my art, that I am thinking about selling pieces which is a huge confident booster that I did not have prior to coming here. Everyone is very kind and even other students are people who would do anything to help out one another. Even though I am a freshman, coming to an end of my first year at The New Hampshire Institute of Art has been such an amazing experience in a great learning environment and I enjoy being a part of such an amazing group of aspiring artists and community.
