Review Minneapolis College of Art & Design
Im in my first year here at MCAD, love the school! Its a bit expensive, just as most art schools, but it trys its best to make up for it. Constantly free trips and fun, food, activities, clubs, movie nights, etc. beautiful range of seasons here as well. Has great dorm pricing considering they come with personal restrooms, kitchens, and living rooms. Lovely people, friendly staff, real great community feel! Couldn't see myself anywhere else but here in the long run.
I really like the college! It's campus is small but gives you the best of both worlds (not too small, not too huge). There are tons of groups and activities that students can join, and there are also lots of on campus jobs available as well! Eat street is a block away so there is always good food, and campus safety will even drive you a mile off campus to get you home safely. They do weekly van trips to get groceries. The campus is also attached to the MIA, a very nice (and free) museum! Oh, and the dorms aren't traditional dorms, they're more like mini apartments.
Literally the only setback I can think of for MCAD is the price, but to be honest, that goes for any university or private college. Otherwise, I love the small environment that the campus provides. Everything is accessible, including expensive electronic equipment that you can check out in their media center! They even have an art store that has amazing prices. All the teachers and staff love their jobs. They are laid back and are to converse with (which I feel is important to every aspect of academic success). I have only been attending MCAD for half a semester and so far, I have no regrets!
