Currently a Junior at MassArt. Strength: being a freshman at MassArt helped me find friends and led me stay connected with all types of people through it’s activities such as ‘Breakfast at Midnight,’ as well as its small campus. I have also found myself closely connected to my professors. This only applies to within my majors' department, my professors have been very helpful in giving me advices as well as recommendations.Error: MassArt, being in the city, you would think that the school would be more diverse. But unfortunately that is not the case, too many times, throughout MassArt, I have found myself being the only racial individual in the class. I have also noted more females than males, which I find to be difficult to get the most of critics because of the lack of diversity. MassArt has not been helpful in connecting students to the city of Boston. Being new to the city, I was not able to further from campus because I had no initial introduction to the city from the school.

I was adamant against going to college before I first visited Massachusetts College of Art and Design. However, within the first few minutes of my tour of the school, my mind opened up to the possibilities the school offered. I have never enjoyed school. In high school especially, I struggled to reform to the strict rules and enforced attitudes. I had not dreamed of a learning atmosphere where the student's input and idea's were valued as much as a teachers, of a place that encouraged individuality and self expression to the extent that Mass Art does. I feel myself growing and discovering so much about myself as an artist, because my school allows me to trust my intuition. Massachusetts College of Art and Design give's it's students access to incredible equipment and subject matter, but for me the most amazing attribute the school has to offer is the strength it instills in it's students, to trust themselves and pursue whatever it is that we want to explore.
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.
