    I currently live off-campus so I don't really get that whole college feel yet. I hear the campus has a lot going on, but if you're into parties, Menlo doesn't do much of that.

    Although I realize it is known for being a small school, you create so many close bonds with everyone that goes here. As long as you join clubs and other extracurricular activities, it is definitely worth your time to go to this school. Menlo College is awesome!!

    Menlo College is an amazing place to be although Menlo College was not my first choice after visiting the school with my parents I knew this was the school that I wanted to attend. The people at Menlo College are very open and friendly there are no outsiders because the school is not just a school but a community family. Besides the school the community around Menlo College is amazing we are in walking distance of downtown Menlo Park and we are close to San Francisco.

    College is a great way to meet new people and since this college is kind of small class wise then you would be able to get to know a bunch of new people.

    I love attending Menlo! It is a small school, and it has so many programs for the students. If you are struggling with anything, anything at all, there is a program for it. What's even more amazing is that the programs are free. Every Tuesday you can go to study slam, where professors go to a common area and help you if you need any help. If that isn't enough, the students that attend Menlo are bright, and more often than not you can ask a fellow student for help.
