To the man complaining about having his car towed: don't park where the MCA shuttle bus parks! I love this school. It's a really really difficult school but its worth it.

THIS SCHOOL IS A SCAM!! This school is great if you're looking to spend a ton of money on classes where professors don't teach you anything, no resources are provided, and no one is actually as helpful as they make themselves out to be. In coming here they offered me a ton of scholarships but I still had to take out a loan to cover the rest of my tuition and school supplies. I was supposed to get an $800 refund check to cover my books and supplies but when the time came they told me I didn't take out enough and had to pay out of pocket for a rediculous amount of supplies that I ended up only actually needing half of. On top of that I had to pay the school a remaining $100 each month for reasons they never fully explained to me. The studio classes are horrible, the grading is super subjective and not at all based on the individual student's progress, and if you miss a class or two, someone will email you scolding for not being there. The dorms are nice but the wifi never works and if anything breaks you can try to put in a work order but will ultimately have to deal with whatever the problem is yourself. The staff acts like they're sensitive to your problems but nothing they have done for me is actually helpful. This school really killed my vibe for art. In my process of transferring I got little to no help from administration. I was constantly being forwarded to other members of staff to help me when it turns out all I had to do to make my transfer complete was fill out a transfer form with the registrar and do an online exit counseling through No one was very helpful and any time someone did get in contact with me, it was only to try to persuade me to stay at MCA. Don't waste your time or money at this school.

I applied to art college unsure of what I ultimately wanted to do; I thought about illustrating, pursuing art therapy, teaching... I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but I knew I wanted to make art. Through my experience here, I was able to explore my options through rigorous coursework, being challenged to think outside of my typical aesthetic and assign meaning to my work. Not only did I learn how to make good art, but I also learned how to create a business, apply to grants and residencies, form connections with emerging as well as established artists in Memphis and around the world, put together an art exhibit and pretty much everything I needed to know to become a professional artist. I felt that my instructors had a strong interest in my success and I felt challenged and open to asking questions of them. Probably my favorite course was Professional Practices (a class which is now a graduation requirement) in which we learned everything we needed to know about being a professional artist. The Career Services department also checked in with me regularly so that as my future career plans changed, I got all the assistance I needed to explore those options. Four years after graduating from MCA, I am proud of my achievements, most of which I attribute to my time at this institution. I have shown my work in around 50 exhibitions, have been hired steadily to create commissions, including creating a massive painting for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and I sell my work pretty regularly. I did not always enjoy my time in school (who ever does?) but I liked it enough to stick around and I'm so pleased that I did. I highly recommend Memphis College of Art.

Briana Freeman

Amazing school, all the professors that I have have really shown just how passionate they are about teaching and helping improve everyone's skills.

Memphis College of Art is different. There is only one main building for classes and its falling apart. The College itself is in the middle of a park so it is pretty, however I always feel unsettled walking around by myself as i'm constantly being harassed. Parking in the summer and spring is awful, as everyone is trying to be at the park and there are no actual parking spaces surrounding the building. The Fogelman and Metz dorms are nice, but the internet is TERRIBLE. Security makes rounds constantly, but during the two times we've had tornadoes there hasn't been any security in sight. I do not recommend walking in town at any time by yourself, people are scary and the location around it is considerably dangerous. Some teachers are rather snobbish, though not all. Expect to be challenged, not babied. I did not enjoy my time here, I'm transferring out. DO NOT let the scholarship they offer you once you've been accepted to persuade you into going, really consider it. They have major funding problems.

Excellent School for Advanced Artists. Love it. They go beyond to help you go out in the real world and find great jobs all over the country.

Nick McKee
