SUNY Albany's fine art & art history faculty were wonderful. They were not absentee staff that were only approachable during the one hour of availability posted on the office door. The classes when I went there, leaned toward the classical ideas of fine art. Printing, drawing and painting, photography, and sculpture. However, when students voiced their need for more "contemporary" art classes like digital imagery, SUNY staff listened! Our graduating class attended SUNYA's very first digital arts class., and it grew from there. Four stars just for that.
The campus was made for an arid climate. The New York winter winds whip through the open concept design.
