5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Kendall was always a top choice since I've been interested in attending art school. I'm very pleased with my decision to attend Kendall and think it will pay off in the long run. I enjoy learning under all my current professors and am excited to meet a few others that I've heard great things about. I enjoy the hands on experiences I get every day and love the small class sizes that create a very inviting and exceptional learning environment.

Overall Experience: Everytime I tell someone I attend Kendall they are impressed and pleased. Kendall has a great reputation and I'm proud to be studying here in Grand Rapids. I know how well Kendall pushes networking on the students from the beginning to create their own connections early on. We're always encouraged to introduce ourselves and to put our art out there.

Overall Experience: I've always been interested in Kendall and didn't struggle in making the decision to attend after visiting a few times. I'm very happy with the choice I've made to take a career path in art. Everyone creates such a great atmosphere and being surrounded by art day in and day out has had a great impact on my life as well as my art. I believe I'm getting a great education with every class I take. Although it's not for everyone, and it's not the traditional route, it's defiantly where I belong.

Overall Experience: For one, the school is always providing food for their students, free of charge. It is always on a date that nobody suspects what's going on. The facility is always clean and appears to be germ free. The faculty and staff are always willing to help and are polite in manner.

Health & Safety: Being in the heart of Grand Rapids, we at Kendall are pretty safe and secure. Not only does Kendall have a great security system in place, but the school is only blocks away from the police station as well as Medical Mile, so even in an instance of emergency or danger everybody is extremely safe on campus.

Overall Experience: My classes and professors are fantastic. They are extremely helpful and engaging with students, probably because of the smaller classes . There are quality lessons and professors help with the entire process of projects to help the students learn and produce work that will help us in the future or even go in our professional portfolios. Professors keep things fun and exciting and allow students to work creatively with their assigned work. It is, without a doubt, the best learning experience I have ever had.

Overall Experience: Graduates from the programs here at Kendall have high success beyond class. Many students have gone on to major companies for their work or have successfully built up their own name. We have visits from plenty of employers and other successful individuals to inspire us to keep going. Pursuing art is a tough choice as it is a highly competitive field, but Kendall makes sure that all students have a fair chance at success.

Overall Experience: I love Kendall, the atmosphere is great and the people are overall very nice. It is a little small and its hard to find seating sometimes and it can be difficult to make actual friends that you talk to outside of school but other than that its a pretty awesome school. The illustration department is probably the best one there

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love being at an art and design school, but I wish I could have the "college experience" some students have at universities. Overall, this school is excellent and I am happy with my decision to attend Kendall.

Diversity: The diversity of students at KCAD is awesome! Every person is an unique individual with different backgrounds, political and religious affiliation.

Party Scene: Because KCAD doesn't offer housing or any Greek life, "parties" are limited and held at the two campus buildings.

Campus Housing: KCAD does not offer student housing. However, they are linked with an apartment complex across the street. They only rent exclusively to KCAD students, though the apartments are extremely expensive. If you can afford it, the apartments are great because you meet people you go to school with and the campus is literally 20 feet away.

Off-Campus Dining: Freshii organic restaurant has excellent health options, though a little pricey. A small banana smoothie is about $5. The taste of all of the food is amazing, and I don't feel guilty about eating it.
