What Students Are Saying

3.23 Average Rating
Basically, Parsons is ideal for anyone looking for an nontraditional college experience! The rules regarding attendance are strict because here you cant just take notes to learn; everything is hands on. The campus is surrounded by life and diversity inside a city that never sleeps*
Sophia from Fords, NJ
Parsons is one of the best non-traditional design schools in the country, focusing on intense collaboration with your peers and external partners. The school is very competitive, though welcomes students with sharp, creative minds that are not afraid to initiate change. Parsons design will force you to explore the limits of design in theory and practice in a challenging atmosphere.
