4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There really isn't too much to do on campus (it's only one building) but fortunately there's always something fun going on in the area. People like MIAD students and are pretty used to seeing them, you're not going to get weird looks for being an art student.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: MIAD is less than a mile away from Summerfest ground, the waterfront, the Milwaukee Art Museum, Discovery World, The Harley Davidson Museum, the Amtrak Station, and downtown where all the big shindigs happen like the Marcus Center for the Arts. It's a city and bad things happen eveywhere, but MIAD is located in the safest neighborhood in all of Milwaukee. The community really enjoys getting involved with students and being involved in school events too.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Summerfest, MAM, Discovery World – There are plenty of boutiques, restaurants, cafes, a few clubs around campus. We are located on the river, so there's always the riverwalk to enjoy, and boating also, although I DO NOT suggest swimming in it. We also have Summerfest Fairgrounds three blocks away, along with Milwaukee Art Museum and Discovery World. There are a few beaches 10-30 min bus rides away, same time for a bus ride to The Rave and Bradley Center, and a few parks withing walking distance also. Gallery openings occur multiple times in a week, and the Haggerty Museum on the Marquette Campus is also close. The Third Ward is the safest part of Milwaukee, but be careful when you get closer to UWMil. The Third Ward loves the MIAD students, and is always looking for help and business. IHop is close by, and that's even closer to the Milwaukee Brewers Stadium, which is also closer to three Arbitrariums.
