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.

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.

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.

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.

Administration: Being an art school, the administration is very lenient. I know many people who do drugs and drink underage- I'm not saying it's part of the artistic process or anything, but it seems like these things are more common among artists. However, if you are doing something that is harmful- like smoking IN the dorms where you will incur smoke damage, or doing something foolish, they will make sure that you are reprimanded, though they make it clear that their goal is to keep you safe, not to get you in trouble. I haven't heard of the police being brought in for anything at the dorms this past year, despite some students getting caught for Marijuana usage and drinking underage, etc. One thing to note, alcohol is not permitted in the dorms regardless of your age, so if you are 21, you're still going to have to find somewhere else to drink and/or store your booze.

Scholarships: MIAD is super generous with their scholarships. I received enough to be able to go to the school for free! I received A LOT more from MIAD than I would have at other schools, despite MIAD being less expensive than others. The high tuition prices allow MIAD to have enough money to give out these scholarships- sorry to those students that come from wealthy families and have to pay out of pocket, but you're helping me get a degree!

Campus Food: I'm not a fan of the food at MIAD. The Cafe is pretty much horrible, and the worst part of my freshman year was that, since you are required to live in the dorms, you are required to have a meal plan, which means I spent $500 for crappy food. The food is very fried and greasy and disgusting from the cafeteria... I advise people to stay away from it. However, it's easy enough to just go to the grocery store and buy food that you actually want, and the dorms have full kitchens, so preparing food is a breeze. I think the food is really the only downfall of MIAD.

Campus Housing: 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!
