     Brooklyn, NY: When you try to picture acollege campus in Brooklyn, New York, it’s hard to imagine justwhat kind of atmosphere you will find. From brownstones and fine diningto the gangs of Bedstuy, Brooklyn offers incredible diversity culturallyas well as economically. Pratt Institute, located on the dividing linebetween upper and lower Brooklyn, offers samples of both effectivelywhile providing a safe environment in one of America’s greatestcities.

With an enclosed campus of sprawling green fields andunique buildings that are architecturally diverse, Pratt’sbeautiful landscape serves as a hub for students, connecting theculturally rich and historic areas of the south and the “newManhattan” to the north. The school offers a variety of majors,from film to photo and architecture to engineering (both of which Prattis especially well known for).

With all freshmen guaranteedon-campus housing and cooperatives throughout Brooklyn that benefitstudents and accept meal cards, the enclosed campus offers outstandingconditions for first-year students - especially those from small townswho will need time to adjust to city life.

Located in awonderfully diverse community with the night life of Manhattan just asubway ride away, Pratt provides a secure environment for students whileexposing them to the bustling, exciting world of New York City. for more.
