As a Creative Writing major, this school immediately stood out to me and became my dream school. Because it's a fair distance from The Bronx where I live, I'm able to commute and save money, while getting to experience the college dream. The campus in incredibly diverse, with a huge LGBTQ+ community that makes me feel welcomed every single day I've intended. The school certainly isn't perfect, but if you desire a degree in any sort of art field, Purchase College is the school for you.

It's a descent school..although not enough diversity. I attended a while ago, but i still remember mostly jewish kids at school. lots of parents involvement and lottery system to select class moms.. That was really nice as so many moms are staying home and wanted to be the class moms. my mom had done several years of class moms and lots of voluntary time at school. Art docent program was nice too, but i don't think it's on anymore as I remember some budget cut. Cool teachers too.
I really loved this school!My children did so great!and the teachers are so amazing and kind!!The staff are all so friendly and the aids are so awesome !I Miss going into the building and seeing all of the friendly faces!
