MCA is a small school, meaning the classes are small so that you can develop close relationships with your professors and fellow students. There's always studio space available as well as access to outside areas to get some fresh air. The school also possesses a caring and helpful staff that will usually work with you to solve any problems that you might experience while attending MCA.

    A lot of the teachers here are pretty legit, a few of them may seem off-putting at first, but once you get to know them, you learn to respect their oddities and you can get some pretty meaningful lessons out of them. Many of the students are stuck up, but there are also a lot of friendly students as well, you just have to know the right ones. You learn a lot, but you also get a good feel of how rigorous your work outside of college will be.

    Memphis College of Art is a wonderful place to become a skilled artist. With a very small number of about four hundred students, it is much easier to get personal attention and help from the art professors. Though there is only one building, the facilities are great!

    A small school with potential but experiencing financial problems. Hence, the academics and opportunities are not as good as larger schools.

    This school is in some debt, so the actual building isn't as nice as other colleges. The professors here are great and they really care. Some classes here are really interesting as well!

    DO NOT ATTEND. these people are losing everyone's freaking money. You will not get the most for your college experience, go to a more public university, or even a technical college.

    MCA gives an individualized education. Great for people who prefer a small classroom and teachers that actually care about you. More conceptually based than most other art colleges.
