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.

I am in love with all of my classes. I came 2,000 miles to go to this school and I'm not disappointed at all. The improvement in my skills in just these first 3 months is absolutely outstanding. The teachers are all very helpful and understanding, but not scared to provide you with criticism. The classes in freshman year are very diverse and I've discovered that I really love woodworking. The advisers in the various shops and studio spaces are incredibly helpful too, whether it's for a class or independent project.
Living in the Two50two apartments was fantastic. The dorms are right across the street from the school, so you are able to easily get to your classes on time without having to take a bus (like the last dorms), and you are easily able to go home between classes or even during breaks during your classes. You are literally on top of a Blick store, so that is super convenient, and DigiCopy is a two minute walk down the street for you Communication Design, Illustration, and Photography majors! The dorms are like living in luxury- they're nicer than your first apartment will be, they're practically brand new right now, and they come fully furnished and with all appliances (except a toaster)- you really can't get any better. Just make sure you have good roommates and your time here will be a blast!
