The best thing about Pratt are the people that attend here and being located in New York City. Brooklyn is great because it's so diverse and there are tons of underground and local artists that take part in the community. I've met some amazing people at Pratt and we've established great connections through out the city. People are often really open minded and always passionate about their work or the activities they take part in outside of school.
The classes at Pratt are mostly great, you just have to look hard to find the good ones. The liberal arts here aren't very hard. If you pick the right teachers, you could go all four or five years with out ever reading a book. I don't suggest that, but by having easy liberal arts you are able to focus on your work. The teachers here are the key. They can help you land jobs, get you set up in the art world outside of school, and introduce you to some great opportunities. Become friends with your proffessors because that's the only way to get ahead outside of Pratt.
The students at Pratt intergrate pretty well. Everyone that goes here is from really diverse backgrounds and all barriers seem to break when you come here. The one thing that you all have binding you together at Pratt is art and thats a great bond to have. People are really open to making friends are often nice to each other no matter what. I mean, hipsters and punks and goths group together but that doesn't mean they wont talk to you the other one in class.
