3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There aren't a lot of parties. More like get-togethers where everyone will have a few drinks, hang out, listen to music. People may go out to bars which are all walking distance from campus.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Parties aren't really a thing. Small gatherings of friends or art departments may get together. No ragers. People get together and drink, talk about art. I think it has a positive impact on the school community. People grow closer together.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Registration is a little annoying but it's all done one on one with each student, face to face if possible. The curriculum is good. The workload is a lot, but art students tend to go all out anyway.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: Much of the population is LGBTQ. Most students are not religious, but some are. Most students are liberal. There is a lot of diversity in economic background. Most of the school is White.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are constant emails about usage. Only one dorm building is allowed to have alcohol. RA's are strict about smoking in the dorms. The school does not permit smoking on campus. Nobody cares if you do or don't drink or smoke, everyone minds their business unless they think it's a safety issue.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a good amount of electives to choose from. The professors are all highly skilled in what they teach. The classes are small and the professors know everyone by name.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: You must sign in and out after hours. There is always a security guard at the front desk since you have studio access 24/7. You get campus safety alerts sent to your phone and e-mail, as well as alerts about what is going on in Portland. It is easy to get hold of someone when you feel unsafe, there is always somebody on duty to help with personal emergencies as well.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The percentage of MECA students who work in art careers is higher than the national average. Advisors and professors work hard in helping you get into internships and residencies. Each student has a mentor of their choosing that will help them work toward their career goals.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are three different dorm building options. Most students live off campus. Two of the buildings are apartment style and you can choose your roommates. They have their own kitchens and bathrooms. One of the buildings is traditional dormitory style with a common area and shared kitchen. There are singles and doubles with shared bathrooms.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: MECA is very small and the community is great. It's in the heart of the art's district in Portland, Maine. The professors know everybody in their department and become fast friends and mentors with their students. They are very supportive and encouraging.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I believe the academics could had been better and more strict.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It was adaptable. Could had been nicer and more affordable.

1 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Out of all the programs on campus, public safety is one of the main places people should feel safe going but that is not the case. There is a racism problem within public safety that needs to be fixed.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Getting a degree is the most important thing you can do, it doesn't matter where it comes from; however, lets just say no one will recognize Guilford.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I enjoyed the people I met and the professors, but the art department was not strong enough for me.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The bathrooms were gross but the rooms were very spacious.

1 College Freshman

Athletics: I was not looking to attend a school with a big sports scene.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Guilford was not the right school for me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Maine College of Art has given me a place to be accepted and most of all be my self. This is a place the wants you to strive to be who you are and always gives you that opportunity.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Got confused half way through

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Apartments in Portland are everywhere -- especially on Congress St, which is convenient. I live with friends of the family in the next town over, and they drop me off at school every morning.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of variety, good quality food and wonderful service at every place we've visited. Many of the restaurants have student discounts available that make it affordable to grab something to eat.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The financial aid department is always helpful with answering questions and assisting in finding additional scholarships to apply for. The school doesn't have an excess amount of funds, so outside scholarships really help.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: At first I was unsure about this school, but as I got through the admissions process and learned more, I realized this was the best school for me. Everyone is really helpful and will do their best to help you out if you reach out to them! Classes are fun, the teachers are great and I couldn't have gotten into a better school.

Athletics: The school doesn't offer any gym options and the sports clubs are very few. There's a gym nearby that offers a discount.
