Montserrat College of Art Reviews
The convenience to downtown stores and restaurants, and the comfortable living lifestyle of the apartment-style dormitories is an attractive feature. The class size seems to be very appropriate for the learning experience. The school size is attractive for my son, who is not attracted to schools with large campus size.
Montserrat is unique in its campus size, apartment-style living, & close connection to the surrounding North Shore community, which provides a one-of-a-kind education & customizable culture for its students. The professors are diverse, personable people who are simultaneously working artists, & give authentic, supportive critiques. They actively engage with students in and out of the classroom. Montserrat staff are attentive, insightful, & approachable--from first time freshmen to old time alumni, all are important. Beverly and the surrounding towns are highly supportive & actively participating in the arts scene, through a wide variety of internship opportunities with local businesses, & community art programs and events. Montserrat is a place for all types of creative thinkers, allowing each individual to learn the way they want to learn, sharpen familiar skills or develop new ones, & be their own unique, powerful person.
I transferred to Montserrat this year as a sophomore. I love the small classroom size and being able to connect easily with professors. I find my major in graphic design to be challenging and interesting. I like the apartment style living and preparing my own meals as I am very independent. I love the Beverly area with easy access to Boston, beaches, shopping, and cultural events. It’s a great match for me, as I didn’t like a traditional college setting of dorms, dining halls, and partying.
