I am a senior in highschool who drove to Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design because I got accepted and received a scholarship there, it is also one of my top school choices. When I was there I was blown away. I love how close the building is to the dorms, and how there is an art store right there too. The dorms (where I would be living) looks amazing too! I love the environment inside the studios in the art building, it was very interesting to see so many people working together or working independently. they all seemed very invested in their work and it is very nice to see.

Coming from out of state, I can say that I have truly fallen in love with the city of Milwaukee and MIAD. The professors here are friendly and accommodating, and I can tell that I am set up for success. My advice to incoming freshman: just visit! See if you like it yourself. MIAD (and art school) is not for everyone.
Absolutely fantastic. Very open-minded place, and friendly too. Is a safe place to express yourself, and you get to meet amazing people along the way. Also, MIAD has many connections to help you in the future!
