Virtual Tours by Students
The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So this is the same control service that's in all of the studios. Yeah, um, and just going to answer some questions for you guys, but wanted to show you guys the space first. Um, but the total undergraduate size is two thousand four hundred ninety. Um, and our graduate enrollment, because we have a lot of graduate programs, is one thousand five hundred and three. Um, if you are on campus your first year, you will be required to live here unless we're transfer or over certain age, or living with your kids or married one of those things. Um, we are one hundred forty miles from New York City and we are located in the city of Albany, which, well, it's not the most happening city, at least for music industry or a lot of things. Unless you're, like, really into politics and education, we do have a really good place to start. Start here, get a good foundation before you go to the big cities and then go to the big cities. Ninety nine percent of our students do receive financial aid of some variety, and that's not all need based. A lot of that's talent based, um, and merit based or sports based. Um, so they'll tell you that the acceptance rate and I can't find the exact percentage, so I'm going to look for a little bit. They'LL tell you that the acceptance rate is kind of low here. Um, but I mean it honestly depends upon your program. What I do see is people having problems getting into their specific programs, and some people will come here for a semester, has undeclared and then try again to get into their program. I transferred, and that's why I'm not finishing on time. Some people they take a gap semester or a gap year, or they just stretch their degree out longer so that they can learn more and not be so stressed. College is hard to finish in four years, especially if you are a music major. Can you do it? Yes, but many people believe it's not worth sacrificing their sanity. Um, I think five years, four and a half to five years is actually probably more realistic nowadays for finishing a college degree than four years is, um so don't take that sixty one percent and let it scare you. Um, part of the reason why it's a slow as it is is because we have people that transfer because that's factored into why that number so low. We have people that switch degree programs so they add extra time that her studies and we have people that take Gap years or gap semesters of time off school. So that's often why that number so low is all it takes is, you know, fifty or so out liars from the data they've gathered, Dad, that number be as low as it is. Um, our main address is four thirty two western atthe, but all of the buildings on campus, for the most part, to have their own address. I'm not super into sports because the other thing that's big here is the music and the arts portion and really just as a music major artsy person, just with how involved we are with that side of things. We often don't cross over into the sports side of things and vice versa. You're going to get that if they're looking for a sports car culture. Let's just make sure I've answered all the points here. Just music in general, not even just music industry. Within that music industry is the highest of the music majors. You'LL be like a communications major, but then have journalism and your concentration communications major video concentration, communications major and they still call it that. I think there's also another concentration on top of that, So that's that's partially wide. All types of education on the education program here is amazing. World, renowned for its placement rate for our teachers, at least in music, is ninety nine percent, Um, and their placement rates for the other are pretty dang amazing, because people do want our teachers and because the reciprocity is so high in between states. If you're into education, that's it's a good school for it as well. So how cool is that? So if you're into video games and you're willing to learn over watch or do you already know how to play it, that's for you. We have the Alana Steppers, So a step team, um, so Evora and I'm probably or saboura. I'm probably pronouncing that wrong dance team and they're amazing. Their amazing to watch essay is amazing because they run late night. Um, I know, um, and we'LL Do Sr twenty one plus nights and things like that. So that's all I have for this set of questions in this video.
