A Day in My Life at Parsons School of Design

January 29, 2018

One of my most frequently asked questions is “what’s it like going to Parsons?” I figured the easiest way to give you that answer wouldn’t be just to tell you in a usual blog post, but to show you! I’m back again with another video {shocker, I know} to show you just what it’s like to go to Parsons School of Design at the New School!

I’m currently a first year at Parsons studying fashion design. I’ll be minoring in either political science or journalism at Eugene Lang, The New School’s liberal arts college {Lang fun fact: While Parsons is known for producing alumni such as Tom Ford and Zac Posen, Jason Wu, and Marc Jacobs, to name a few, Lang is actually Eleanor Roosevelt’s alma mater}. That’s one of the many things I really love about Parsons. We’re allowed to minor, or even to double major, at Eugene Lang! We’re encouraged by the school to do so and it really allows for a more diverse education.



I was really really uncertain about my college decision initially. I fell in love with Parsons when I toured, but with so many options, I couldn’t make a decision when it came down to it {I applied to a ton of schools and wasn’t expecting to get into any of them except maybe the University of Minnesota. So when I did, I didn’t know what to do}. It took me until that May 1st deadline to make a decision, but I can say with full certainty now that choosing Parsons was 100% the best decision I could’ve made. This school goes above and beyond in so many ways.


If you’d like to see a full video reviewing Parsons, or you have any questions at all about it {acceptance, preparing your portfolio, classes, professors} let me know in the comments, or DM me on Instagram here! I’m more than happy to answer anything you might be wondering about it!

Hi, I'm Eva! I'm best described as an aspiring Blair Waldorf with a case of the travel bug that can't be cured. I'm a lover of witty words, pink peonies, and slight sarcasm. I aim to empower women to travel the world solo, sharing on-trend, feminine style inspiration along the way. Originally from the Minneapple {Minneapolis, Minnesota}, and now living in the Big Apple, you can probably find me most often on a plane, running down Park Avenue stressed out in 4" heels, or planning my next escape.
