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.
The New School provides a unique environment that fosters the different qualities of students. Students have the opportunity to experience the world right in the center of New York city while attaining a college bachelors or masters degree. The school has more positive qualities than negative. Out of the negative qualities, I would like to see the tuition go down given the fact that it is an expensive school.
