    I will be attending Parsons in the fall for Strategic Design and Management. When I visited I could feel that the creative environment was the perfect fit for me. The New School is innovative and going to help me reach success.

    An open-minded school for people who can't deal with required classes. My program was a bit light for me, but people in college for the joy of learning will love it. Professors know you and care; it's incredible.

    It is very easy attending a commuter school to get lost in all the buzz that makes up this amazing and crowded city of New York. However, at The New School I find that the professor are very welcoming and truly make the time to get to know their students. I've enjoyed my time at The New School attending truly thought provoking discussions and lectures. My adviser has also been an influential person in narrowing down a path best suited for my ideal career goal. If there's one issue I would probably state is finance. The school is expensive to attend with limited scholarship specifically geared at Graduate ONLY students in the International affairs field.

    A group of highly-motivated students goes here. New York is a difficult place to live for most, and the hard work that people put into their daily lives is the same as that of their studies. The student population is not very intimate.
