I think the drug most often used is cigarettes. Other than that, it doesnt seem like there is much of a drug scene at school.

I commute so I do not live on campus or experience much of the dorm life, but it seems that everything is lively and exciting and that everyone enjoys their time.
College Freshman 2013-11-25T19:46:43Z
I think that my school is strict in areas where they need to be such as possession of alcohol and drugs and the honor code

I am constantly told that Portland is one of the most affordable cities. Many students who go to my school live off campus in apartments, I plan on looking for somewhere off campus to live next year.

My school does not offer greek life.

I do not use public transportation, I have my own car.

It gets very cold in the winter because the school is located in Maine. But it is not a problem if you enjoy that kind of weather!

There are no parking lots available for free for students of MECA. Since it is in the middle of the city I am forced to pay for parking in local parking garages.

There are 3 computer labs available to use. Often times there is a class going on in each of the labs at the same time. This causes conflict for students that need to work on the computer during that time. The scheduling of classes in the labs should be distributed evenly rather than al at once.

For students over 21 there is a tons of night pubs and bars, mostly in the Old Port. If you are underage there isn't much of a chance of drinking.

The meal plan at Maine college of Art is excellent. There are tons of daily vegetarian/vegan options and ethnic foods. The coffee bar is always available and the staff is great.
There are dozens of restaurants around Maine college of art, too.

Students at MECA are held to a high standard of what is acceptable on campus. The school offers students activities daily to keep the temptation of drinking or partying at bay.
The school has 24 hour access which also allows for the strictness to be lessened.

There are so many different places to go eat food off campus. In the Old Port there must be over 20 restaurants. It is all in walking distance and is relatively cheap. There is a wide variety of choices to eat from too. There's italian, greek, japanese, Chinese, mexican and many others.

Home Like Atmosphere – I have just started at MECA but I felt completly welcomed from day one. The staff is friendly and the students are just like family. Everyone helps out everyone and at the end of the day game night by the TV is not unheard of. Overall, I enjoy MECA and hope AI can afford to stay all 4 years!

So, finding a way to get somewhere in portland is easy. We have the metro which has pretty good hours and is affordable, however it is almost packed. And the people you find or meet on the bus are usually crazy people, homeless people, or creepers. There is also lots of different cab companies. This is very expensive and i dont recommend this as an everyday means of transportation. Plus half the cab drivers are creeps and you never know who is going to be sitting behind the wheel.

Almost Anything You Like – At MeCA, you have the opportunity to do just about anything. If you like to party there is bound to be a house party near by; especially on the weekends, if you like the clubs we have plenty of those, concerts/live music pretty much every night at a couple different places, or you can just go find someone playing on the street. There are numerous restaurants, bars, etc. and if you dont want to party or listen to live music then you could hang with the RA's at one of their scehdualed events. They get together and watch movies and play games along with other stuff.

Lot's to Do – There is almost always something going on whether it's with the school a city function or adventuring on your own you wont be bored if you have an imagination. The school hosts functions through out the week and especially on weekends with the R.A.'s and big events for special days through out the year. If nothings happening with them, then go out side. You will most likely find a local venue is having a concert, there is a play/performance going on, and there is always the first friday art walk which is held every month where venders sell and trade art and crafts. If none of that tickles your fancy then you could go to a local park, check out the beach, get some awesome food, or just sit in the park. And dont forget the museums!

It's Pretty Sweet – Portland is pretty fun, even though i'm not a city girl. MECA is awesome and i have so much fun there. It's tough and i get supper tired sometimes but it's cool when everyone else knows exactly what your going through. You have to stay on your school work but if you can balance it having a fun social life with great people is easy.

Guys & Girls:
People Are Pretty Chill – The guys are attractive the girls are attractive, most of the people there are really awesome, down to earth and fun to be around. However some people are still stuck in high school and are dramatic and somewhat childish.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
