Purchase is a school for the arts though it holds a high rating for its liberal arts curriculum. The magic of purchase certainly comes from its diverse student population and the atmosphere is always pleasant. The facilities for srtudents in conservatories are outstanding. We are provided with some of the best equipment and studios to work with. As a drawing and painting major I spend a majority of my time in the visual arts building. It is open 24/7, allowing us to come in whenever we feel inspired. Outside of academics we have lots of social events such as concerts and movie showings, dance recitals, plays and more. On campus the stood is one of the most frequented buildings. It has a small arcade, space for concerts and just space for us to hang out. Overall, Purchase is a great place to be. I always feel comfortable here and the people are wonderful.
