Overall Experience: I am an Entrepreneurship major with an interest in photography. I plan to pursue a career in traveling photojournalism upon graduating from Minneapolis College of Art and Design. My school experiences have been significantly above my expectations from the distinctive location, creative population and exciting events. While I was researching schools I could not find a degree that offered the two interests I was looking for, but I was thrilled to learn that MCAD offers both a business and art program. If I could do it all over again, I would choose MCAD every time.

Overall Experience: One of the prompts for this question is,"What makes your school unique?". If you have ever seen a college campus before, the second you pull into the MCAD parking lot you will begin to see why my college is so different then any other, why it is unique. If you are an artist, you will fall into a trance of who is that, what's this tool, there's so much art everywhere. The school is honestly a "Hit or Miss" for people,and for the people it hits, it is a fun, challenging, and adultifying experience. This school makes you grow up, if we look like it or not. Being a student at MCAD, I have made more art then I ever have before. I originally went into this school thinking I was going for Graphic Design, but because they encourage you to keep an open mind for the first year and experience all the different paths that art can take you, I decided to follow the path of Furniture Design and I couldn't be more happy. I love my classes, I greatly enjoy my teachers, and I still get to take classes outside of my major. College is not a place you should have the mind set of "I need to get in and out", personally I believe that you should take every opportunity to learn something new, meet new people, make connections because once you're out, you have to find your own way to learn those things, to create an artist community of your own, put yourself on the line to make connections . It is a lot harder outside of campus, so soak it all up now while you're here. MCAD has an amazing assortment of tools for you to utilize to obtain a finished project. This school has more tools and resources then I have ever heard the name of before stepping on campus as a student, and you have access to every single piece of equipment there. MCAD is an establishment that truly wants their students to succeed as artists outside of classes and after graduation. College is a new experience. Do me a favor. Anywhere you go, Just get through your first year. It gets relevant to your interests after that.

Athletics: To be honest I don't think we have an actual sports team. The only thing I can think of is that students do play Qudditch tournament. Otherwise during the summer students do enjoy a game of football and simple leisure activities outside.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I don't really eat off-campus much. But, when I am around there most of the restaurants are in walking distance. Cost of dining is reasonable.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It took a long time for me to find a reasonably priced, nice looking apartment. I'm within 3 blocks of campus, and have off street parking. It's not bad.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Right off of eat street, theres lots of places to go!

3 College Sophomore

Administration: There's a lot of underage drinking, and the only way people are really caught is if they decide to be stupid and throw a loud party. Some drug use, mostly weed, and they don't say anything about that either really. Campus security just doesnt really go through the campus apartments enough to be effective.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: You usually get some really large/helpful scholarships, but it's dampened by the costly tuition.
