3 College Junior

Overall Experience: We have a good variety of courses. That's pretty great. Not always happy with painting courses; I feel painting department lack skill/technique/material-based courses. Pretty happy with graphic design courses, we have a good variety. Wish there are higher level typography classes than Type III. I feel that our academic requirement of two academics per semester is a little much, they often get in the way of my studios. That is not to say that I'm not interested in any of the academics I'm taking. I just feel that the studio courses here are more important to me as an artist, especially for students who have a minor or double majors.

Overall Experience: Our career center is great. They are very helpful and on top of the game. I wish Career Fair could be longer than a few hours per year. I don't think the degree means too much but that is just art school in general.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is pretty good except for Founders Green, not including Leake.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are some great experiences at MICA. I have a part time job at school so I am grateful. The graphic design department is great. I feel like I have learned a lot just by minoring in graphic design, because the faculty is excellent, the courses have variety, students receive newsletters containing job/internship opportunities, current events, alums accomplishment, etc. Painting department however has been a bit disappointing, at least compare to graphic design. We hadn't have a SVA for a while--we didn't have an effective way of communicating between students and the department. The classes are largely concept-cased, I feel like I haven't learned nearly as much as I would like in terms of materials, techniques, and process. Recently our new department chair has been making positive changes/addressing issues above, but I wish this happened sooner, not when I'm about to graduate.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have no regrets attending MICA! I'd do it all over again.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: It's pretty easy to get alcohol and marijuana at MICA. There's no pressure to participate, but it will be around and students should be aware of it. There's a lot of marijuana at MICA. Other drugs aren't really very big.

Health & Safety: Baltimore is a dangerous city and MICA makes a big effort to ensure safety for students while they're on campus. I think Campus Safety should spend more time patrolling the areas surrounding academic buildings that are further away from the academic hub, because classes can go late into the night and it isn't safe to be out alone in areas just a few blocks from the MICA campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've had great experiences with professors! Although I can get irritated with some of my professors, they're almost always really accommodating and approachable. Some professors are really, really tough, but it's never made them hard to approach.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are a lot of companies that give presentations at MICA looking for students for internship/employment opportunities. I haven't looked much into this because I've only just started at MICA, but from what I've seen there's a strong career development program.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are great and close to the academic buildings. The security is great, the buildings stay clean, and rules are upheld. Housing is really, really expensive though, and they make it super difficult to live off-campus as an underclassman.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my school. Going to an all-arts college means that I'm constantly surrounded by artists with similar goals to my own. The work is what you make of it -- if it's done poorly, it'll be easy, but not worth it; if it's done very well, it'll be difficult and time-consuming, but worth the final product in the end.

Overall Experience: One of the best schools in the country, however the recent impulse to commercialize and homogenize the school into a corporate entity is impacting the quality of work produced by the student body.

Academics: There are not many academic classes offered, besides Humanistic studies courses. However, if this is not an interest to you, then you may not enjoy the class. The work load depends on your instructor, however, sometimes the amount of reading given is too much.
