Article: "MICA has a truly unique urban campus"
Posted 04.25.10 by MICA Communications
The main story in The Baltimore Sun's education special supplement, published April 25 (click here), highlighted the Unique facilities offered at college campuses around the Baltimore area. Nearly the entire front page of the story is about MICA's "novel" buildings, listing everything from Main to Gateway to Mount Royal Station, and many in between.
"All of the buildings at MICA could probably be called multi-use," the article states. "The mixture of offices and classrooms, libraries and galleries, studios and auditoriums matches the variety of MICA's offerings in art and design, modern and traditional, in every medium."
"We do everything we can to get prospective students on campus," Theresa Bedoya, vice president for admissions and financial aid at MICA, is quoted in the article. "Our academic offerings are comparable to other top art colleges in the country, but our campus is what sets us apart."
"I like to think of MICA as a steward of adaptive reuse," says Mike Molla, vice president for operations at MICA, talking about how many of the buildings had former uses (train station, shoe factory, fire station). "We adapt the space to the students' needs rather than make the students adapt to the space."
