Its a really international environment, which brings the the campus all kind of culture background.

School in general is grate, but parking at downtown campus is a serious issue, which becomes the only cons.

Your typical DC, cold in the winter, hot and humid in the summer

There are a number of great places in DC, but finding some that are affordable is always a challenge. They are out there though

For the building's size, they offer a good number of computers. The PCs are a bit slow, but the Macs are fast, but often taken

The parking at Georgetown is ok, but you must pay for a pass. The downtown campus is expensive and very difficult to get a spot.s has metered street parking whi

Being a commuter student, I take public transportation every day to get to school. It's very taxing and the metro system is unreliable. Driving in the city is already a hassle so make sure to give yourself enough time to get to class on time. The metro can be very expensive depending how far out you commute. The buses from downtown campus to Georgetown will never get you to class on time, I never made it to class on time when I had to go from downtown to georgetown.
Recent Alumnus 2013-03-04T15:27:27Z
driving for the Gtown campus is a must as the bus rides are inconsistent and long. I bike b/c I live nearby, but most do not.

I was given a number of scholarships and a fellowship, however this still only accounted for a fraction of the tuition. The lack of funding may be due to my program being relatively new. A major turn-off nonetheless.

I am a grad student, therefore the focus is mainly on school. There is alcohol consumption, but this I assume is just occasional.

At the downtown campus you have to park on the street and its near impossible to find a spot, plus its expensive. And the meter people love to hand out tickets! At Georgetown they at least have a parking lot, but you still have to pay a fee to use it. In the end you'd save yourself a lot of money if you didn't plan on bring a car to school.

There are plenty apartments in the city, but you have to know where to look, and they can be costly. The city is pretty transient so if you can't find something right away chances are if you give it a month a place in an area you like will open up. The trick to finding a place in DC is starting early because most places require background/credit checks and they take time, and you never know when a place will fall through on you.

The facilities at the Corcoran could use updating. It's like an art student's room which makes it feel more homey in a way but it's far too small. Having more studio space for students to have their own studios would be nice. Right now students have to share their studio space with other courses which can lead to artwork or supplies being stolen. Having a bigger student lounge would be great too!

DC provides anything for anybody. The downsides are parking, bus/metro costs, and housing costs

Great networking and great guest lectures for exhibition design
Recent Alumnus 2013-01-16T20:06:14Z
The classes are challenging and can be very interesting due to the diverse backgrounds that the fellow students come from. Everybody brings something new to the table, and many of the instructors are adjunct, working professionals. This allows you to keep up to date with the practices in the field.

Fellowships at the graduate level are difficult to come by, but if you have one, you can expect to dedicate at least 10-12 hours a week. You are given a stipend for your time, which is OK, but could be larger. Because of the location of the school in DC, it is very easy to find internships, but most are unpaid.

The school is small so there are few facilities built in apart from the few lounges. The labs are great and the access to the gallery is exquisite.
Recent Alumnus 2013-01-16T19:59:28Z
The school is very small, therefore the facilities are small. The undergraduate campus (The gallery itself) is quite beautiful, but the classrooms could use updating. The graduate campus could use a makeover, especially since it is a design school.

The drug scene is pretty average at the Corcoran College. A lot of people smoke marijuana but no hard drugs like coke or heroin.
College Sophomore 2012-12-30T23:05:22Z
Students are very free to do whatever on campus. You could hang out in the student lounge, go to an open studio for a classroom, browse the gallery for free if its open, visit the nice library, or go to any number of lectures from visiting artists.

Corcoran's Work Study program is very competitive, if you apply for financial aide and you want to be in the program you must apply for various positions that require previous experience. The available seats in each position fill up very quickly due to the small size of the school and you must be looking every day at the Work Study page on their website or you will have very little luck getting a good Work Study job.

Guys & Girls:
The guys and girl at Corcoran are very diverse. Knowing that we are an art school, there are all kinds of personalities around the campus. We are more family based since the school is so small. Many of the students are from foreign places, DC, MD, and the rest of the united states. But it's definitely not hard to get along with each other.

Health & Safety:
Corcoran College makes sure the school is protected by the security and the teachers. Also the teachers are always aware of the students and their surroundings. We also have security from the white house surrounding the premises. The housing is secured as well. We have to have a certain key in order to get in the apartment building and the people at the front desk pay attention to every person that walks in and out the door.

There are several places surrounding the school that will tantilize your taste buds. All sorts of ethnic foods to choose from. It is good to have a diverse palette for taste buds.
