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.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: I don't really party much since I live off campus. Most parties are really just small get togethers. With alcohol involved.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Pretty good quality food, and pretty addicting. Overly expensive though.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It was nice living on campus, especially having your own kitchen and bathroom. More like an apartment, less like a dorm. It was pretty expensive though, so I only lived on campus my first year.

3 College Junior

Athletics: The gym is small and the equipment is starting to fall apart

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: You have to really look for something nice and cheap

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We are right next to eat street so take advantage of it.

4 College Junior

Administration: The teachers all treat you with respect. The staff around campus is friendly and will often strike up a conversation with you.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: They offered me a scholarship when I applied.

College Junior

Party Scene: It all depends on who you socialize with and the kind of person you are. Not everyone is into partying so most the time it's invite only or small get togethers.

5 College Junior

Campus Food: It may not all be the healthiest options but they do have them. They have some vegan and lots of vegetarian options as well. Most the stuff is freshly made and the muffins are made by scratch each morning. They are also pretty nice, allowing you to get free refills even know they are suppose to be .50 cents.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It's nice to live close when you are up all night working in the studio. You don't have to worry about having to walk alone at night with public safety and the large apartment style dorms are nice. You even get a kitchen to cook in, which is my favorite thing about them!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They have a physiatrist on campus for all mental health needs anything else you would have to go to the doctors office for.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There are no fraternities or sororities.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Campus is two blocks away from 'Eat Street'

5 College Freshman

Local Area: The school is in downtown Minneapolis so there is lots to do right around the corner.

College Freshman

Athletics: There are no official sports. There is a soccer and volleyball club but they just play for fun.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They are really accommodating and clear about the rules and what the consequences are if they are broken. But this school is based on students reporting other students so if none of your classmates have a problem with what you are doing then you are probably doing nothing wrong and have nothing to worry about.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: There is not a wide variety of attainable scholarships for visual arts.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: All of the students at MCAD are attractive in their own way. Everyone has their own style and works it.

4 College Senior

Academics: There is a large variety to choose from for classes. But once you've declared your major there are main classes that you have to make sure you take before you graduate, but I believe that's normal. There is a large variety of other classes available to take however, outside of your major, so that you can have the chance at a variety. The registration process is a pain, the workload can sometimes be overwhelming. The library and the college center are popular areas for students to gather to study or work on assignments together and there is also a learning center for getting papers looked over and study help.

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: Campus crime happens every so often and usually involves people from off campus or people who do not go to MCAD because MCAD has an open campus. Personal safety for everyone is always a potential issue, there are no special security measures. Police and safety services are available but not very effective. Most often I do not ever feel safe walking around on campus outside because anyone can walk through campus, especially when I am by myself I always feel slightly nervous.
