    Parsons is the ultimate school to attend if you are looking for an art and design school in the heart of New York city. The school not only has beautiful and up to date facilities but also has staff that works in the field that they teach. Although the school focuses mainly on fashion, their other programs are world renowned and obtaining a degree from Parsons is not only well respected but looked for when applying for arts and design jobs.

    Parsons is a school that is very aware of its reputation and pushes their students to reflect and support that reputation. The coursework can be incredibly overwhelming but at the end of the day, it is an extremely rewarding experience. The school is located in one of the most fun parts of Manhattan (Greenwich Village) so it is very easy to be inspired on a day-to-day basis.

    Parsons is perfect for aspiring artists/designers who want to understand design innovatively. Known for their always changing curriculum, Parsons is really helpful for students who need a fresh idea and want to be ahead of the curve. Although Parsons is widely known, it is also quite disorganized at times, which can be annoying but it is bearable!
