Kendall College of Art & Design Reviews

So far, my experience at Kendall has been great! The student body is diverse in character and there is so much talent and inspiration in one, centralized area! It's located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan, so there's always cool events and exciting things to do. I will add, however, that there is no dorm housing provided by the school. Instead, you are subject to finding a nearby apartment or house. There is also no cafeteria, so students must provide themselves with their own food. Aside from the rather real-life adult aspect of this school, I'd like to make it clear that this school provides a very loose, energetic atmosphere! Every student and every teacher is ready to express their passions and provide their opinions into others' work. Altogether, I've found Kendall to be a perfect way to introduce me to the real world and the arts!

I love the passion that everyone here seems to have here. The students and faculty here are great and genuinely love what they do. The talent here is incredible and both student and faculty are very helpful and give valuable lessons, however no one here makes you feel dumb or bad for mistakes or being inexperienced in a certain subject. Because Kendall is right downtown, the location is great and there are many amenities around town that you may be interested in.
I would like to see some affordable food options on campus. There are currently no food options aside from vending machines.
KCAD is a great school! They offer classes that make you a well rounded artist in all aspects of art. They also offer a wide range of art based general education classes and electives that cover everything from simple math to human sexuality. Highly recommend if you are from a small town or from a big city wanting to go to a smaller school. Class sizes are around 12-18 so, you get a ton of 1:1 with instructors. Class sizes also make critiques very in depth and helpful.
