I personally enjoy attending MassArt, it gives me a lot of opportunities as an artist and, it allows me to do a lot of different art projects that I never done before. However, although I think the school is great, it is not without it’s flaws, the meal plan needs to improve as well as the housing plan. The falculty is very helpful but, personally I think the college needs to bring opportunities to undergraduate students.
Nothing I would change I love my school and the people in it! just wish we had more scholarships cause I hate having to take out big loans.The culture of the city also plays a big role in the school. there is so much to do in Boston and it's always a blast weekdays and weekends sometimes ... I DONT EVEN WANT TO LEAVE CAMPUS!! I love the relationships created by students and teachers, all friendly and easy to confront when worried or just simple small questions the faculty is always ready to help. I know for sure I never want to leave this soon however again wish I had more money so I won't be in debt later on but its so worth it for the life and education of art taught on this great campus! The food is also amazing and the workers are really nice, in the dorms again the faculty is just beyond perfect a good morning every day no matter whats going on in my day they always make me smile with their bright smile and politeness. I wish more people knew how amazing this school is because I don't think it gets enough credit for all it puts out. The student art shows are extravagant and just completely beautiful to the eye, a must when visiting MassArt! I love my school and although I've said it a lot, I truly mean it, with all my heart and deep within bleeding orange and purple every day!
MassArt is a pretty nice school. Some major departments are more tailored to individual students than others, such as painting or SIM, while some of the larger majors tend to be a bit more broad range; As a vegan student on campus, the cafeterias aren't great for finding food. There are always vegetarian options available, though very frequently they involve cheese or butter. I have my own kitchen in my sophomore dorm, though, so it's not all bad. Food is my biggest qualm with the school, because otherwise I love being here.
The faculty is great, the community and people attending with me are interesting, dimensional people, good education for a small in-state tuition, lots of great equipment accessible to all students, awesome connections for after college, good school for my particular major.

My advice to myself as a senior in highschool is this: College is a resource, just like a pen or a pencil. A pencil will not write a paper on its own, you must write with it. Sitting in a classroom will not make you more educated, you have to listen with a sense of curiosity and that will help you achieve a better education. Never lose your curiousity. Always want to know more, about everything, even if it is not in your major. Learn about life. Do not get wrapped up in your image and what people want you to be. You live your life, no one else does. Think over that statement for a while. Do not allow yourself to settle. KNOW what you want, and go for it at full force. Do not make excuses for yourself. You have potential to be everything you want to be. You are young, you have so much to learn and explore. Find the beauty in exploration. Do not spend your money on things you do not need. Remember that shirt you bought freshman year of college? No? Remember the knowledge you obtained in your classes? You will have that forever.
MassArt has a great student community. Although very competitive, the students become well aqcuainted with each other and rely on each other for support. The facilities are equipped with new technology and the library has amazing resources.
I am never sure of if I will have a job within my field. Nothing reasures me that I will be able to have help from my school once I graduate. I am paying a lot of money (being from outof state) and have taken out several loans and I fear that in the end I wont have help at getting a job. Getting statistics of how many students have jobs would help. Athough I have this doubt in the back of my mind I have never been so happy following my passion and doing what I do at school.
very stuck to meeting people in your major
Creative upbeat lovely school where they're open to anyone and any opinion. Very fast pace must keep up with work load.
An open minded, creative, kind, and intelligent human wishing to give back to the world through artistic means.
Spending my time building healthy habits will not only serve me better but make me happier than participating in counterproductive activities (i.e. smoking cigarettes, getting high). Positive ways to utilize my time include going to the gym regularly, getting involved in the community (there are many art shows), and eating healthy.

My classmates are the most creative and warm-hearted people I have ever met. I have really connected with everyone I have met at MassArt. I have not met anyone snobby, rude or cruel at MassArt and I believe I never will. Everyone here is diverse and has their own unique stories; which are inspiring and educational to my knowledge of culture. My classmates are also helpful and enthusiastic about everyone?s passions and talents. Plus, there are no ?clicks? at MassArt, everyone is friends with everyone, I have friends here from all different walks of life. I love MassArt.
For a public university, MassArt offers no shortage of resources curcial to one's development as an artist and embarking in a tough economic field, that puts even a smaller, more selective school I attended (Gettysburg College) and others I visited in the past to shame; of course these resources are moot if one lacks the initiative to explore what a school has to offer before jumping headlong in.
Massachusetts College of Art is both academically and artistically challenging. The students here are serious about their future, and work extreemly hard. Every member of the MassArt community is open to new ideas and alternative thinking. The only people who would not fit in, or shouldn't attend MassArt are those who are not accepting of others, are unpassionate about their future, and don't enjoy a challenge.
