Campus Housing: I've heard it's great, however I don't live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The community is friendly, and the faculty are very kind, understanding, and extremely helpful

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Most people coming to campus don't really develop any new habits. If you smoked frequently prior, you'll probably smoke in a smoking area. Same with drinking or any other substance. I've only heard of a handful of people that did any serious stuff or had problems.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: MassArt really does make a strong effort to make Campus safe. Where the Residents are, there's also Wentworth's Public available to any college student, and campus police keep a presence on the road that cuts past Artist Res and Treehouse. Also being on a frequently busy street helps keep shady people and activity on the low. I've walked across Campus at 4am before and didn't feel uncomfortable.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It really varies from person to person. Some find art history or social studies a pain because they chose to go to a nonacademic oriented school, but each professor does have a passion and knowledge for the course they teach. The quality gets better after Foundation Year when you become immersed in your Major.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a sophomore, I can't give a complete accurate experience for this. If you're trying to look for a job, use the career resource site especially when looking for Work Studies. And of course, it depends on what Major you'll be pursuing when applying for the professional world, but the location of Boston offers many opportunities for people in the Traditional Arts and in Design.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Both Treehouse and Artist Residence are pretty nice. You have access to Wentworth's cafeteria as well as MassArt's in Kennedy. The C-Store, despite its prices, is great because they stay open later than the cafeterias. There's easy access to the main campus, and with the new DMC building, South Hall and Pozen.

Greek Life: We don't have any form of Greek Life currently

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I have no experience in the athletics on campus, as it's an art school. Athletics are available to people searching to participate in them though through intramural programs with neighboring colleges.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Certainly an immersive environment.

The real gem is in the area, where students have unlimited access to the whole of Boston.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: So far there has no problems on my campus, although a few shooting alerts have scared me.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Personally I've just had a few problems, but only on my side.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: With fellow students that seem responsible and fun, there has been no problems.

2 College Freshman

Athletics: Well, it's an art school. So I wasn't really looking for it.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's been an interesting semester so far. I've found myself being inspired by both fellow students and teachers.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are always security around the campus that are friendly. You are able to feel at ease with them. There is even a shuttle that drops people off to main locations for commuters getting home.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My overall experience at MassArt has been difficult, yet rewarding. MassArt is a college devoted to the arts, and it was the reason why I chose to attend school there. Art making has been my favorite experience as a whole because of its ability to help me grow not only as an artist, but also as a person.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Despite being in a busy area, campus feels safe and I haven't heard about or experienced any assault or dangerous situations.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Awesome, experienced professors, all interested in if not passionate about the classes that they teach.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't used career services much yet but I've heard a lot of good things and they are active on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Decent amount of space, good community and excellent proximity to classes.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: MassArt has an excellent community and great staff!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: MassArt is in a relatively safe area, and the campus is very condensed, and although I'm not convinced of the competence of the public safety staff, I still feel fairly safe.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

 MassArt is a small school. The size of most classes here allows students and teachers to get to know each other and communicate on more personal level. The education in arts here is wonderful; however, MassArt lacks organization. Often they don't give students enough information, when it comes to registering for classes. A lot of times, even for freshman, people at the registrar's office just assume that the students know when and where to get their registration packets with all the requirements. Unfortunately, some students come here because they expect art school to be easy, but soon they realize that this is not the case. Students here probably have a bit more control than other schools over how hard it is, but that doesn't make it easy.  

With all the advantages that art school can offer, the setbacks seem unimportant. MassArt is in a great location, which allows teachers to have classes at the Museum of Fine Arts. Student life here is fun and full or strange and very interesting art projects. Taking risks, thinking outside the box, and exploring the unknown is what students do and enjoy doing here.
