Portfolio Events & College Fairs

MECA participates in a number of college fairs, career days, regional portfolio events, and National Portfolio day events throughout the United States and Asia. More information can be found about the specific events through their websites, NEACAC College Fairs, National Portfolio Day, P-review. We might be at other events that are not listed here as well. We have many recruiters traveling throughout the US, feel free to check with admissions to see if and when we’ll be in your region.

These events are an excellent opportunity to have your portfolio reviewed or provide an opportunity to speak with a MECA admissions counselor to learn more about the classes, residence halls, studio facilities, and life at Maine College of Art. We would love to meet you!

At all Portfolio Days, the events are first-come, first-served, so there is no need to schedule a time. And please follow National Portfolio Day on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. Spring 2018 dates coming soon! Please check back soon for more information.

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 email us at admissions@meca.edu.
