Yay, I have finally chosen my college! After long consideration and debate between MCAD and Herron, I have decided to brave the Minneapolis cold and go to the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. While I thought that Herron was a truly amazing school with beautiful facilities, great faculty, and friendly students, I think that MCAD is a perfect fit for me. Their own facilities are amazing, their equipment seems unreal, their program is strong, and their liberal arts classes are varied and interesting. I’m excited about my decision, though I regret to leave Herron and not become part of their community. To anyone considering Herron, please consider it seriously, because it is a truly amazing and wonderful school! I already feel like there are teachers I’m going to miss…and I haven’t even known them for more than an hour!
Nonetheless, I think that once I meet with MCAD teachers and become their student, I will be comfortable and at home. The students all looked relaxed and comfortable in their environment, and what I heard of them talking sounded both intelligent and compelling.
Anyway, enough rambling. I send out the papers to confirm my decision tomorrow night - scary!
But I look forward to this coming fall and the many possibilities, fears, and accomplishments it will bring. It’s a scary time, but it’s also very exciting, and thrilling. Living, breathing, loving art - I can do it! :]
