Mission Statement

The mission of the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston is to provide an education in the fine arts for undergraduate and graduate artists—inexperienced and advanced artists of widely ranging age groupings—that is interdisciplinary, self-directed, always evolving.

It has special features: it values cultural, artistic, and intellectual diversity; it must include a wide range of media; it stresses the development of individual vision; it values art making more than adherence to curricular rules; it stays deeply in touch with the external world of art. If the mission is constant, its practice is always emerging.

A lot of freshmen were lonely. My roommate also transferred.
