4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The school offers professionals in the industry as instructors, which is awesome for learning about the industry but sometimes not so helpful in the ways of learning the trade/craft side of things. Although the school has been compared to Bauhaus, there also isn't a lot of opportunity for interdisciplinary education.

Overall Experience: Graduating from MIAD with a BFA means a lot in Milwaukee to people who want to give you a job. Outside of the city, not many people are familiar with the school but if you have a portfolio of work, it speaks a lot. The degree doesn't mean a lot, but the education and the work you put in is definitely something to be proud of.

Campus Housing: The building is brand new and right across the street from the building classes are held in. I lived there for one year and the dorms are student apartments with two students in a bedroom and two bedrooms to a unit. There are also two bathrooms. The building doesn't accommodate social events very well because eager participation is low. The school is located in a very expensive district of the city so the housing price is excellent in comparison to what is directly around, but still extremely expensive.

Greek Life: There is no Greek Life at MIAD.

1 College Junior

Athletics: There are no athletics affiliated with MIAD and the club atmosphere is terrible. Most clubs are run by students who don't really know what they're doing and don't have enough time to put effort into them.

Campus Housing: Brand new apartments make for an amazing living experience and the close proximity to school is even better!

Overall Experience: I haven't started at MIAD yet, not until the fall of this year, but so far my interactions with staff and other students has been amazing!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I think the security team is great, and I feel pretty safe with them.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think the professors are very knowledgeable in the field. It's nice to have teachers who really care about our progress as artists.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think there is a great ease to finding a career on campus and being able to discuss with Career Services.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I think TWO50TWO is absolutely the perfect housing experience.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: The only Greek organization available is the Honor Society, which is relatively easy to become a member in!

2 College Freshman

Athletics: MIAD doesn't really offer any athletics, which is an issue. I don't think there necessarily needs to be Sports, but health and wellness should be pushed further.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: MIAD is an excellent school for discovering who you are as an artist. The Foundations (Freshmen) year is designed to really help students figure out who they are in their first year.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Most classes have a max of 15 students. The class rooms are nice, because it not just a bunch desks in rows, they are all different and create specifically for certain types of classes.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Almost every student that graduates finds a job in the career they are looking to seek. The school it also very good with finding internships and jobs. The alumni is also very close with the school and is good with helping students financially. Some of the alumni even hire students strait our of college and a good chunk of them provide internships.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing is nice, but expensive. There is more space then the average dorm, but for the amount you pay it should be more. You are promised high speed internet, but it only works half the time and is not even close to fast. It is nice because its right across the street from the campus and is maintained well. I would recommend it if you don't live in area or don't like traveling.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: M.I.A.D is a great school. At your first year you try out a little bit of all the degrees they offer, then you get to decide what major you want to choose. It is good for a school to do this, you never know you like something util you try it. The school is small, so your teachers will know who you are and most of them are friendly, with a few exceptions, of course. The teachers also go by their first names and that makes them seem less intimating and more friendly. The school is also good with dealing with bad teachers, if you have issues it is easy to let someone know. Actually if you have any issues they very open to suggestions. Most of of the school is designed by the students and it is always improving and changing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm having fun and learning what I want to learn.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People and environment around school is friendly and nice most of the time feel safe around campus unless really late at night.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a few robberies around the area late at night, but the area seems pretty decent and safe.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Admission treated you like a person and part of the school already. Very friendly people.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: People are more open to your opinion and more freedom. The people there are friendly and instructors are a first name bases to help make it feel more friendly. Although very friendly atmosphere there are some areas in departments that could use some better funding.

Off-Campus Housing: Off-campus housing can take you pretty far from the campus because MIAD is in such a wealthy area- most people live around Brady street or in Bayview or UWM area. However, you can't go wrong- even living by yourself, you'll spend less money than if you were in the dorms, and you don't have to have that horrid meal plan. I'm getting a 3 bedroom with two other people in fall and will be spending no more than 400 a month total for rent and bills.

Off-Campus Dining: There are tons of restaurants around MIAD... if you're willing to pay the price. The Third Ward is a very wealthy area, so the restaurants are pretty high end. However, it's not hard to take a bus to brady street where there is fast food and other restaurants and coffee shops, or even to UWM area near Oakland where there is a lot of fast food and pizza places. Pizza Shuttle is always a solid option, and you can always order delivery.
