Most Helpful Review for Bard College at Simon's Rock
  • Category: Am learning a lot

Studying the sciences at Simon's Rock can be a bit tricky, since it is very small and is known for its liberal arts. However, although not many classes are offered continuously, the classes that given are very challenging and the professors are helpful. The classes are super small and it's easy to get to personally know your class and professor. Upper level classes in the BA program are offered as tutorials.

    Simon's Rock is a very small, community oriented school with discussion based learning and small classes. Teachers are very considerate and the campus has great tools in place to make sure that your academic transition from high school to college is smooth. Honestly, the food could be better, but the dining hall staff do indeed try :)

    Even though it is the most stress a person can endure, any amount of time at this school is worth it. The professors are incredible and have so much wisdom to share. The community of students also makes every class a unique experience.

    simon's rock offers a strong academic program with a quirky and varied student body. people come here for a challenge, stay for the professors, and leave with the skills to be competitive students and citizens. there is a lot of learning and growing the community could do, and i've enjoyed going through that process with my peers these past years.

    Simon's Rock is truly the most unique place I have ever seen, but it is only a good fit for some. Most students have an extremely outgoing personality and can be very imposing, so shy personalities don't fit in well. Additionally some major programs are much stronger than others - theater, math/science, and literature are, in my opinion, the most well-supported and largest majors there.

    Simon's Rock is a great place for high school students who are ready to attend college one or two years early. The professors are wonderful and there is a unique, small community at the rock.

    the teachers are great; the administration is for the most part very good. student life on campus is very active. great barrington consists essentially of main street and a few small streets adjoining to it, and can sometimes be boring.
