…Our Back-to-School Instagram Contest starting Aug 30th!


If you have a favorite campus spot—whether it’s your go-to when you need a quiet place to study or the place you meet friends to unwind, we want to see it! Find a spot and post your photo to Instagram with #makemcad

Only one entry per person. You need to be a current MCAD student and must be following us on Instagram to qualify.

Thanks to a generous donation from the MCAD Art Cellar, there are awesome prizes involved for the winners:

  • 1st Place: $25 Art Cellar Gift Card
  • 2nd Place: $10 Art Cellar Gift Card
  • Runner Ups (2): MCAD Planner

The contest will run from August 30–September 5. We will track the tag throughout the week and regram the winners a few days after the contest ends. 

Good luck—and here’s to a great year at MCAD!
