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.
