well its pretty average for the diversity of the campus, they are a lot of different cultures and Religious background but mostly Asian students, other than that everyone is pretty friendly and does there own little thing, if you want to get involve their are main events and things to do. some of the challenge for the international kids from countries what english isn't there first language it takes them awhile to express themselves properly if they are proficient in it

The majority of Pratt students are white. However, there is a large amount of Koreans, who are for the most part very interested in being your friend.

Most people are wealthy--it is an expensive school--but not everyone. Not very diverse racially. Everyone seems pretty liberal, but it depends.

No on seems to have any political leanings so there's that. Being an art & design school, most ppl are pretty accepting of all kinds of lifestyles, so that's good. Economically, kids seems pretty middle to upper class, don't know about much religion and sexual orientation is all over the place; also nice for diversity.
Racially, I feel like Pratt's mostly white, black, and Asian. Nationality-wise, it feels mostly American or Chinese/Korean with a sprinkling of Japanese -- very little European, s.american, Canadian, African, etc. Personally, I think Pratt could do a better job recruiting for diversity...

Because my portfolio was good, I got a huge amount of help from Pratt. And I'm thankful for that. But I don't see a lot of financial diversity on campus. I don't care about talking about the racial diversity, or lack thereof, because I feel like that's racist in itself to say that "Pratt needs more black students." I feel like the most important thing that a school can do is to allow many different students with all types of financial backgrounds to attend. I had to keep quiet about how poor I was, how my mom had to put up a second loan on our house to pay for school, and how I couldn't go out with my friends as much as they wanted to because my part-time job went straight to rent. Religious beliefs range from atheist to agnostic to Baptist to Jewish to Catholic to Protestant, and most people open to their peers belief. We have a very strong Queer Pratt group that meets every week. But the fact that no one that I know, except for me, has had to reconsider going to school for another semester because of the debt they'll be in drives me crazy. Why can't more students will financial need be accepted and helped through Pratt's financial aide service?
Sorry, there are no reviews.
