Maine College of Art Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish i had known exactly how many kids would be attending, and exactly how I was going to pay for this. I am less than a month away from leaving to go to college, and I'm still struggling to figure everything out money wise.


Before coming to Meca in the fall of 2009 I wish i had known more about the meal plan, and student life on campus.


Lack of social events. Difficulty for a commuter to connect with on campus students.


I wouldnt have wanted to know any thing about my future and experiences at MECA. I took six years off between High School and College, and had I come to school any sooner than I did, I dont think I would have been as much of a dedicated student. I love having time and experience under my belt. I wouldnt never want to give up those six years I spent working on tug boats. So to know any thing before school would have soured it for me I think. I revel in the unknown.
