So far it's been a great experience. What you get from any graduate school depends greatly upon what you put into it. The teachers here are there to help you but they can't do so if you don't speak up.

I have an had such an amazing past three years so far -- onto my last year! I want to make the best of my thesis year to prove how much I have learned from my classmates and professors. And to make a really great project. I absolutely love this school from the amount of support I have received from all around me. The access for editing labs and the equipment is great. They should include more for camera equipment but still wonderful. I will miss this school so much when I graduate.

SVA has made me realized how much I really want to pursue my career choice as an animator. The staff and students in that school are amazing. They are very helpful and friendly and it feels like you are part of a community!
