Most Helpful Review for Maryland Institute College of Art - MICA

The same can be said for many schools, but the education one receives at an art school especially varies from student to student on how seriously they take themselves and their work. After two years at MICA, I can definitely say that it's sometimes difficult to balance a social life as well as staying on path of finding a serious career, however nevertheless, the education I recieved from the school as well as Baltimore has impacted my life in such a way that I cannot imagine having gone to school anywhere else.

    MICA is a great school that encourages every student to reach their full potential, while still staying true to who they really are. The entire faculty and staff are very encouraging and also help every single student grow as each year passes. Everyone in the MICA community is full of so much love and generosity, including the teachers who provide amazing opportunities for the students, which helps us after we graduate. .

    It's a beautiful campus right in the middle of Baltimore, with great transportation options for getting to other cities (like DC) because Penn Station isn't far. The atmosphere is cooperative, student-to-student and teacher-to-student, and academics are great, from what I've seen. There are also a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, so everyone can find something to do, plus starting your own club is easy.

    MICA is a wonderful college with a faculty full of experts. The campus is modern, is constantly upgrading to the current technologies, and is always current in what is out in the field of art making. The teachers here are people who are still working in their perspective fields and can give you honest opinions on what it's like to truly be working in today's time.

    Amazing staff and classes at MICA you learn a lot, from students and teachers especially in your first year there. I don't think any other school can compare in MICA's foundation year and the amount that you can learn about art and yourself. This is a place to grow and build connections best school I could ask to attend.

    The community is composed with many family-like, kind-hearted people. This school gives students a great sense of becoming a working artist. The school is located in the city that is a bit dangerous.

    MICA has pretty phenomenal teachers and resources; they're creative and understanding people and the facilities are well suited to artists. Baltimore is a diverse and historic mix of suburb and city, and is close enough to DC, NYC, and Philly that going out of town is easy, but this city is not for everyone and can be a little rough.

    This school provides faculty that is more like friends and family because they are also working artists. The resources are abundant. It costs a lot of money though.

    MICA is an amazing school with the best teachers in the country. I can pursue my dreams of becoming an art teacher here in a state-of-the-art program. MICA has granted me many opportunities, like volunteering, and having a studio space, for helping me get involved in the community and creating art.
