Massachusetts College of Art & Design Reviews

MassArt has many quirks, some that make it better and some that can deter from the learning experience. The people at MassArt are eclectic, passionate, fun-loving, and creative. My teachers have made the experience what it is for me; I am learning and gaining experience from working professionals in my field, and that experience is beyond valuable. Many people here are devoted to and serious about their work, but some tend to care less about it, which is extremely frustrating to those who work incredibly hard and get the same amount of recognition as those who slack off.
Review Massachusetts College of Art & Design
I think MassArt is very underrated. For its cost alone, it is undoubtedly the best value for an art school in the entire country. Though its strengths are graphic design and illustration, all of the programs within the school are dedicated, hardworking, and try their best at providing the most in-depth education possible. The location is excellent- right in Boston, surrounded by at least 5 other colleges. The community is great, and I've never been happier than I am here.
Massachusetts College of Art and Design can be a great school, however each student, on their own have to make their experience what they want. Successful students at Massachusetts College of Art and Design are the students that are proactive, and and do their best to educate themselves on the resources available at Mass Art.
