If you enjoy goingQuite BrightOther
If you enjoy going to the Motor Vehicle Department and being treated as a sub human you will love Mass Art. The school exists primarily to take your money No one will help you, nothing is done to make students feel valued and they will screw you without hesitation.

Question
You should drop in a class to seeBrightUndecided
You should drop in a class to see if u like it ...
also most everyone has to do foundation year, and I wished I knew the 10 hours of homework per studio class was nothing more than busy work.

also if u commute there is a large locker a a workroom in one of the dorms but other than that there is no extra facility or support!!


I feel like I wasted my money this year and am dissapointed with the lack of electives u get. The art classes were so tiring that I craved academics.I

am transferring to pursue a design degree elsewhere.
additionally some techers are better than others like it is everwhere, but officehours are very limited if u need extra help and not alot of personal attention is given even tho the classes r small. I have seen people suddenly get a fail without the teacher ever saying anything.

my advisor was ok, but she didn't really advise, the curriculum for each year is pretty much set up
another important thing u cannot minor at massary or any other colleges of the Fenway!!!
food gets repetitive, business office always gets mixed up Overall I cannot see myself at the school for another 3 years
