Purchase painter 6/5/2019

Do not waste your money. Professors are not motivated, they do not teach you well, and I felt like I am wasting my money and time for the classes. The food they provide on the campus is pretty much junk food such as pizza, burger, chips, cookies, and it is so expensive, and the dining hours are very limited. My friend got 10 pounds during her stay at Purchase. The book store does not have enough supplies, and more expensive than a local store. There is always a party and drug stuffs going on every night.

I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting from the Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Purchase College and graduated in 2014. While there, I studied under incredible professors like Leigh Dillon, Charles Tuthill, David Wells, Christopher McCann, and Dean Irby. The conservatory style program allows students to fully immerse themselves in their craft. The small class sizes allow for individualized attention at an unmatched level.
