    Academic Rigor

    From what I've heard from students, the school has a top notch academic system.

    In three sentences

    I've talked to people that are attending and people that work there. They're so helpful; and kind! And the school has so many opportunities for me.

    Campus Safety

    Security is always a plus and thankful for AADA there is always Security on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    Student Council sets up fun events and such. They usually are fun if every student attends. It also gives the students a chance to see all the students outside of classes and interact with one another.a

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Rumors of Ghosts in the Theatres. Never had an encounter but have heard stories.

    Bang for the buck

    Definetely worth it. Had a great time all throughout the year.

    What to do for fun

    Explore NYC!

    Food and Dining

    The school has no such thing as a food and dining plan, so that means you must provide for yourself. That tends to get pretty expensive, since it is located in midtown Manhattan.

    Dorm Life

    The Academy House has its ups and downs, Like any regular dorm. I have heard stories, but I never lived on campus.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be on time! Always! You're late when you're on time, you're on time when you're early! Also, be as open minded as you can be about all the new things and people you are encountering

    In three sentences

    The school is all about the work, meaning you put in the work and they give you tools to better yourself as an actor and person. What you put into the school is what you get out. Those who put forth the maximum effort get the best results, and those who slack off and aren't into the program... well, they aren't benefiting much from the fantastic opportunity in front of them

    There is no food program on campus

    Dorm Life

    They try hard to match you with students with similar interests.

    Academic Rigor

    I have been told the work load is heavy but not impossible

    In three sentences

    Several people have told me this is a wonderful program for theater studies. The work is rigorous and individualized.

    Food and Dining

    Dorm Life

    i don't really know but i can imagine it is really nice.

    Academic Rigor

    i don't really know but i suppose it is high.

    Tips for prospective students

    contact the school an ask for anything you need. they are patient and really nice when it comes to answering any questions you may have.

    In three sentences

    the webpage gives all the information you need. you can find everything you look for in it. it looks like an incredible school, but as an international student with money problems i believe they should have auditions in other countries, so students have the opportunity to even apply.
