I\\\'ll be perfectly honest. I\\\'m not normally the kind of person to leave reviews, but at this point, I am completely frustrated with this school and its lack of action or even empathy.
As a 2021 graduate, I was very excited to go to MIAD. The student housing is nice (but expensive!) and the instructors are generally understanding and compassionate, with very few exceptions. Most have been understanding with COVID and all. Student life is fairly active and it\\\'s very easy to connect with other art students with similar interests. The food has gone downhill in recent years, if you don\\\'t have a meal plan from the student housing, I\\\'d honestly just suggest bringing your own lunch (cheaper and probably better than what they sell). Third ward itself is a decent place, though parking is ridiculous. Living here was an okay college experience.
As for the curriculum, a lot got reworked in my time here, so I can\\\'t exactly say if it will be the same for future students. Some classes prepared me better than others, but none gave any real-world connection opportunities like I\\\'d expected.
Here\\\'s what bothers me though. The administration does not care. And I mean that. If you have an issue with how something is run and provide feedback for how to fix it, they will ignore it and say later that they did all they could, given the circumstances. That\\\'s just not good enough for a college of this level. MIAD knows they could do better and refuses to do so. 2021 was an opportunity for change and a breakthrough in how the Senior Thesis projects are presented, but it has to be one of the hardest losses in the school\\\'s history. I can\\\'t help but feel as though a different, more competent school could have handled this situation better.
The instructors and students are nice, but they can\\\'t fix this administration.
I love the class sizes and the group of people I have met. To be able to create with such a diverse and open thinking group is wonderful. I want those people who are considering MIAD to really know what they want to do, as in a career. While thereis fantastic studio and design classes, if you want to be an educator, or career that is off the art path. It may not be the school for you. The people are worht meeting though.
MIAD has one of the most unique environments of all the schools I have visited. This bohemian warehouse school gives an artist or designer the freedom to get messy and perfect their craft. The professors are all practicing artists, so while they instruct you on how to grow, they are growing and creating themselves. The school size is small and intimate; being in one building, you get to know everyone pretty quickly. There is alway access to any resources you may need and people are around to give pointers at all hours. The surrounding community provides a healthy environment for an artist to thrive, lending inspiration around every corner. MIAD gives an artist or designer the chance to learn about every possible facet of the art/design world an sets up the connections to be successful. In terms of creating a school for creators, MIAD has gone above and beyond.
Its alright, needs more hispanic students and they need to know that we know when they're just using us or including us in things just because we are hispanics. We love to be included but really? Just because of that, I mean were adults now we aren't oblivious to that. They also need to lower the food prices because I have some friends that live too far for them to leave during lunch and if they bring a lunch its usually not the best to eat by the time lunch comes. There are shops around the third ward but I mean we are broke college student help us out and drop a few bucks. As I said MIAD, Its alright.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design is 60%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Any advice I would give myself is to maybe try harder in school, and things WILL be better when college arrives. I never liked high school and I performed poorly in it due to my lack of concern or care for the institution I was in. I fell through the cracks and had a chip on my shoulder for any form of education after that and felt I was doomed to ever enter college. Had I known my college now would give me a chance of a lifetime to attend, I would probably have tried harder to obtain more oppourtunities regarding financial aid and support. Otherwise, the only other advice or caring information I would pass along to myself is that college is better and college is worth it, and to just keep pushing foward until that days comes along.
A community of artists working to find their strengths and voices.
The fact that it has slowly turned into not such a competative school, the school is accepting kids with out many requirments. The school should be at the top of their line and extremely competative and hard to get in, like Harvard or Yale. It seems like the school is slowly going to turn into another state school that will be over filled with dumb students.
time, high drop out rate
A creative person who is willing to work very hard. He or she must be creative 24/7.
I had big hopes and dreams. I was going to go out of state, see a whole new part of the world, and be independent. When financual burdens made this excursion unrealistic, MIAD was my fallback. After I began my first semester, I realized what a great school it was. The teachers and staff are inspiring, helpful, and professional. The community is freindly. I feel challenged, urged forward, and hungry for discovery. I wish I had known the true beauty of the school earlier, and had invested more time in it, such as taking the pre-college program.
My classmates are motivated and fun, looking for there way to make their mark on the world.
Personal studio spaces, access to awesome resources and facilities, and a really fun environment. It's a tight knit school where you get to know a lot of people very closely throughout your time in school. Plus, the alumni connections and business networking connections that the school has makes future career opportunities seem much closer to grasp.
small class sizes therefore able to get lots of one on one time with instructors. availability to take courses at Marquette University.
This school is very small, but it's incredibly welcoming and friendly. I can honestly say that any person would be able to fit in and enjoy their time here. But if you feel like you need to get out and be on a big campus with lots of students, then you may not like MIAD so much. The campus consists of three major buildings and located in the Historic district of Milwaukee so it's a little different of a lifestyle than that of a state school.
