The college is far the city life and is very quiet and peaceful. It's a great place to make friendship with Native people and share their culture and tradition. Excellent place to learn contemporary and Native arts.

I am a return student to IAIA to receive my bachelors degree in museum studies. So far my experience has been extremely fulfilling and I have gained a huge amount of knowledge just within my first semester here. I recommend this unique institution to all who are interested in the arts!
