| A lot of negative reviews often refer to this school as "a waste of money" for not being taught anything. Art school in general should be very different from regular schools in the area of learning. Where as other places of education will hand you a bunch of facts and tell you quiz tomorrow, MIAD's approach is very different. You as the student have to discover what works for you and what doesn't. It is almost nearly impossible to be "taught" to draw, but the teachers here will offer suggestions on how you can discover a new way to approach a situation. The faculty here are your friends and seem like they are at the same level as the students (in a good way.) and don't treat the students as if they are below him or herself. Instead a wonderful togetherness of learning occurs where self discovery and understanding is mutual between the two parties. |
Since MIAD is relatively small it possesses a unique coziness but still has space to get away from the busy city. The teachers have the ability to really talk to you one and one and the best traits of nearly all the staff here actually care about you as an individual. (Which is a big reason why I chose this college.)
If you are struggling they offer very friendly tutors who will bust their butts for you. Everyone here will do their best to make sure you are getting the best education ever. MIAD offers another helpful resource where one can check out books from all surrounding colleges and have it delivered to MIAD. I could go on and on about why I like this school, but my main emphasis is how the teachers really do care about you and want to see you challenged with the work they assign. In the end you will be fully satisfied and happy. Even though I only just started school here, I've been hanging around this place since my Sophmore year in high school so I think what I've said is a pretty accurate description through my eyes.

So far I love the school! The work they give is very challenging, no it's not busy work, it actually challenge to be creatively open minded ! Currently I'm a foundation student and I hope to major in Communication Design. The reason why I pick to go to MIAD is because how small and friendly ever one seemed, despite how I herd that the students where condescending and rude, basically stuck up. I haven't got that yet a MIAD and I consider my self a very observant person. If your reading this please go book a tour to the school, you will be inspired like I was!
