The New School Reviews
The New School is everything I wanted it to be and more! The urban style campus located at the heart of where it all happens in the NYC gives you all the more reason to apply. There is never a dull day in the city, for there is something always happening around campus. From the experience's you'll have, to the people you'll meet, makes being a Narwhal at TNS worth considering to attend!
The New School has accessible, clean, and aesthetically pleasing facilities. What's more is that the school meets their pillars of sustainable design; They consider their social, economic, and environmental impact. Educationally, the professors are impressive, experienced, and helpful. A typical class size of 15 students in a conference-room setting propels intellectual discussions & collaborative efforts. The reason I refrained from a fifth star is because of the lack of sports teams, athletic activities, and student life. There's little noise from school clubs and, while I'm not one for parties, it seems students rarely engage on campus. The dorms aren't anything spectacular either.
I went to graduate school here, after completing my undergrads at Hampshire College. I attended the School of Media Studies, with an emphasis on Film and Media Criticism. New School also gave me an EXCELLENT fellowship and grant package, and I was able to live off-campus in Brooklyn. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you are a creative, free-thinking progressive student. Wouldn't be a great place for those invested in sports or Greek life.
