MECA on the Road

Department Banner

MECA participates in a number of regional portfolio events as well as National Portfolio Day Association (NPDA) events throughout the U.S. These events are an excellent opportunity to have your portfolio reviewed. We would love to meet you! There is no need to schedule a time, as these events are first come, first served.  

If you are able to come to MECA for a portfolio review, we encourage you to do so.  For more information or to schedule your on-campus portfolio review, please contact the Office of Admissions at 207.699.5026 or 800.699.1509. You can also e-mail us at
