    Lots of great people here, lots to do, and while tuition is pricey, I think the experiences you make and the people you meet as well as the things you learn are worth it.

    The biggest thing this school has going for it is the price. That's why I came, because I'm broke. Otherwise I would so have preferred a private school, or maybe even another state school. This place is terribly underfunded, so the facilities suck and the staff can be thin in certain majors. If you're looking for a BA in the liberal arts, it's cool because you can do your undergrad pretty cheap. If you're looking for a BFA and get into a conservatory, then congratulations on getting to utilize the majority of this schools funds. It's probably a better school for commuters. If you're close enough, don't live here.

    the campus is in the middle of nowhere so its a good idea if you drive to get close to civilization. The campus shuttle bus is always available to transport you to white plains or port chester.

    Great cost for a school that offers so much. Most art schools are very expensive, but Purchase is a super affordable school where students can get the most from their money spent. In state tuition plus housing and meal plans tends to be around twenty grand a year, which is a bargain if you ask me.
