I am currently a senior in animation at MassArt and I have never felt more a part of a community. Here at MassArt I have not only found myself creatively, but I found my true self. Through the talented and helpful professors, I have learned how to do incredible works of art through practice, practice and more practice. My peers have been absolutely wonderful; they are not only loyal and genuine individuals, they are my inspirations. Like most schools, there are a couple things that need to be worked through, such as foundation/freshman year, the cafeteria food, and the understanding and patience of freshman year professors. The liberal art classes are interesting- not your average scientist class (i.e. Physical of music, bio art) - and the various majors offered are at the upmost functioning degree. However, above all else, it is without a doubt that the community at MassArt is much stronger and tighter than our education program.
Review Massachusetts College of Art & Design
Student art everywhere,which is nice. Could be more diverse racially, but diverse in terms of artistic styles and LGBT. Good Public Safety on campus. Some of the teachers are bad with creating and following efficient syllabi (syllabus).
Professors in Fashion aren't encouraging, but at least I learned a lot. Liberal Arts classes are mediocre. Not enough equipment, but the library and resources are decent.
