College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Never experience off-campus housing but getting to and from college I hear is difficult due to city traffic and the weather.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The college is strict about their absence policy. If the student isn't in class, they have emails sent to remind them. Every two absences and a grade letter is dropped. The security guards are nice and they are willing to help, they have had experience on the police force and they know protocol.

College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug safety is a huge thing, but it's not a big deal. They know that college students will get into drugs at one point, but they just make sure that there isn't a huge amount of it or that it's interfering with the student's life and schooling.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of places to eat around the college, some being fastfood and others are dine-in places that have ethnic cuisine. There aren't many student discounts that I am aware of but the cost and variety are good.

3 College Freshman

Academics: There have been alumni in my field that have gotten jobs in places like Nickelodeon, MTV, and Disney/Pixar.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not received an internship yet but I am still applying for as many as I can find. There have been opportunities for people that have declared their field, I still have yet to declare but I know that I am going into animation as my career choice.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I love animation and I would do it over again and relearn the basics of animating and such.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: I, again, don't personally go to parties. Never have been invited and I just don't see the appeal.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There are many different apartments and dorms surrounding the MCAD campus but they all vary. The older buildings have wood floors and smaller spaces while the newer buildings have more space and carpeting.

College Freshman

Parking: I personally do not own a car, so I cannot be able to explain throughly.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have gained a lot of experience while being in MCAD, the teachers are always there to help you and they are easily notified via email for questions outside of the classroom.

5 College Freshman

Computers: The computers and laptops are supplied, but they are bought through the tuition. There are computers already set in the buildings with all the technology and programs built in, but the laptops are used for homework, individual projects, and school related things. The wifi is great as well and it is accessible anywhere on campus.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in Minneapolis is alright. Same as just Minnesota weather; warm summers and cold winters. There is nothing too extreme but there have been some extreme weather warnings from how cold it has been.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't actually have Greek life, fraternities and sororities.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are no actual varsity sports since it is an art and design school, but there are clubs that hold sport events like softball, basketball, and even old-school recess games.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The diversity on campus is wonderful. There are many ethnicities that come to MCAD to learn and and many clubs that promote sexual orientation, religion, and politics so no one is left out.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: At first, it seems relatively simple if you know what you are looking for and knowing what to do during the process. It sometimes feels overwhelming when you are having trouble looking for the information you need.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Each dorm is its own apartment, but they are old and outdated, and they dont seem to take consideration when placing roommates

Facilities: It's entirely art based so the galleries are always full of students and faculty work

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computers and wifi systems around here are all fairly reliable

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Declare the major that interests you and they'll teach you what you need to know

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Web and multimedia is a little broad, but it is enjoyable

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus security is good but the neighborhood surrounding campus is often considered sketchy.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Not a whole lot for anyone under 21. Have to walk or take buses.
