Maine College of Art Reviews
For a small, unique college Maine College of Art really stands out to me. Each department does its best to serve every student with experience, knowledge, and support. Each year I climb I am always anticipating things to become more stressful, but I seem to be proving myself otherwise. I can only see positive changes within my education at Maine College of Art! As I look back, I am so grateful that my first three years of college were as helpful as they were, and I can certainly say that I learn something new everyday.
MECA is equipped with a service called Artists at Work. It's a student and alumni center offering a constant job board of local and international internships and grants. If you are ever worried about getting hired for the summer or after graduation, they are the people to see! Other than that, I think my school is really encouraging and has enough to get you motivated to work within the real world. It just takes a determined student to do so.
Basically, the school itself is wonderful. 24/7 access to facilities for students, a friendly staff and great resources. However the community is immature and fairly only concerned with themselves rather than helping a unified group of artists form other connections to further their networks. There is no mental or emotional help for students who need therapists or psychologists on campus. The work load is sometimes over whelming and can lead one to compromise integrity and craftsmanship for making unrealistic deadlines.
