What Students Are Saying

3.23 Average Rating
I would encourage any future student to enroll in the summer program at Parsons. its one month, but you are on the go from day one. and you will really know whether Parsons is the school for you.
Brittany from Boca Raton, FL
Don't be afraid to be different! Parsons welcomes students that aim to shape the next generation of the design field, which is evolving into something that it wasn't before. In your personal statement, don't be afraid to mention the frustrations you've experienced with the field, and how you can address the new challenges that arise.
Elizabeth from Greeley, CO
When considering this school, DON'T apply because 'art school is easy'. IT'S NOT. The homework will kick your butt, hard, but it's worth it if you're determined. Parsons is not for the weak. You must have a positive outlook towards the work because in the end, this is what you want. If you want an easy degree, go to a community college.
The professors here are your friends, Mimi Kim especially. Most of the professors at Parsons are quite young. Don't worry about an old fart teaching you some ancient textbook crap, Parsons tries to stay trendy with their courses since art is always reinventing itself.
Xylina from Austin, TX
Work on your portfolio! I worked for two years on mine, so I could submit only my best work. Prepare to work hard too, your professors only want your best.
