Living in the Two50two apartments was fantastic. The dorms are right across the street from the school, so you are able to easily get to your classes on time without having to take a bus (like the last dorms), and you are easily able to go home between classes or even during breaks during your classes. You are literally on top of a Blick store, so that is super convenient, and DigiCopy is a two minute walk down the street for you Communication Design, Illustration, and Photography majors! The dorms are like living in luxury- they're nicer than your first apartment will be, they're practically brand new right now, and they come fully furnished and with all appliances (except a toaster)- you really can't get any better. Just make sure you have good roommates and your time here will be a blast!

Being in a major, any major, is always tough work. It takes a buttload of determination and motivation to get through four/three years of it.

Personally, Interiors, Architecture, and Design (IAD) is one of the best and worst majors ever. It takes soo much work and requires so much of your attention and time. You have to sacrifice a lot of things to get where you want to be, to have a worthwhile career. I despise the workload because out of the entire school IAD requires the most time and classes and credits. It's so much! But I do love it. Nothing you want is easy to work for. And IAD is something I love, very much. I have never not enjoyed designing something. It's stressful, yes, but it's totally worth it.

As a student in IAD you generally have 3 specific teachers who will stick with you throughout your 3 years in their major. They all are very intelligent and competent. Internships are always there, but you need to put in the effort and apply for it yourself to get it. The school doesn't baby you and apply for you, it's a do it yourself kind of thing.

The dorms at MIAD are very nice - almost apartment style living. Each room contains a living room fully equipped with furniture, cable television and a kitchen! Within each room there are three bedrooms, two smaller ones that share a bathroom and a large one that often has a bunk bed and is shared, also including a bathroom. The living spaces are a great social atmosphere. There are study rooms on each floor where students are allowed to get messy with their work. There is also parking space directly underneath the dorms. The only downside to the MIAD Park Dorms is the distance from campus - although it is located in a great college area on the east side that really gives you a feel for Milwaukee, they are about 20 minutes away by bus or MIAD shuttle.
