    This is a place that is for either fine arts, or design. There are a lot of students here pursuing illustration and sequential narrative (basically comic inspired styles of art). The degrees are limited and specific, so I would suggest know what you want to do before you attend. I would not suggest this college for people who want to pursue art education, art history, or specialized art degrees. The people are nice here, and I love the friends I have made here. I would say 90% of the professors care about their students. Memphis is not for the meek. It's not the safest city, I carry around pepper spray, and a pocket knife. Just be smart, lock your car every time you leave it. Don't walk alone, don't go out too late.

    Take your classes seriously, you aren't paying thousands of dollars to sit around and not show up or not turn in work. You aren't going to get any respect from your teachers here if you go about that way. Get used to calling your teachers by their first names, it may seem odd at first, but most of them prefer it that way. Be ready to spend a lot of money on supplies your first year. Get used to not getting off for things like Good Friday like you do in High School.

    If you have the slightest interest in pursuing art, Memphis College of art is the place to be! Not only are the faculty and students inspiring and friendly, but the environment is also a major plus, as the school is located in the heart of the eclectic Memphis. Memphis always has fun activities to offer, but one must not get too distracted from the very challenging curriculum and studio assignments.
