If you want to apply here think about your personality and how you interact with people. Then think about how learn and create work because what you might think art school will be like could be entirely wrong when you attend SIAC.

In order to succeed at SAIC, you need to have to ability to be self-motivated to do research and experiment in different mediums in order to further develop your practice. SAIC will challenge the way you view and think about art, allowing you to develop a conceptual understanding of the work you are making. If you are committed to research, putting in hard work to develop your practice, and enjoy participating in critique, your SAIC diploma will be worth it.The same can be said about student life. I was very involved on campus, and felt connected with the student body, faculty, staff and even the administration. Artists are inherently independent, and the school has actively begun working to meet the needs of the students through programming, events, and support. As with academics, you truly get what you choose to put into your SAIC experience.

The interdisciplinary nature of the school puts it ahead of most other art schools. SAIC has the most advanced sound, performance, and new media/art+tech departments in the country (if not the world). Chicago is a fantastic city with art events nearly every night. Only negative about the school is the extreme urban location, after a month or two you will miss seeing trees and hearing birds. The winter months are tough too, dark and dreary, you will become an ice cube.
