In the Aug. 22 edition, Parade's College A-List article lists MICA as the no. 1 studio arts program compared to other art colleges in the country.

The online version of the article includes a high school counselor saying, "MICA is one of the finest art schools I've seen. The feeling on campus is one of excitement, collegiality, and creativity. If I had any artistic talent this is where I would want to go, the opportunities for growth seem endless."

To create the A-lists, the national magazine compiled recommendations from high school counselors. Seven colleges were selected in the arts program category, varying in specialties from theater to dance and music, and are listed alphabetically, giving each an A ranking. Other chosen colleges were Alfred University, Barnard College, Chapman University, Connecticut College, Stetson University and University of Dallas.
