    Clubs and Activities

    Tons of great clubs.

    What to do for fun

    Enjoy the beautiful scenery of Monterey, Carmel, Carmel Valley, and Santa Cruz. Go for a run, surfing, biking, shopping, go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and much more.

    Food and Dining

    The cafeteria food is good, but off campus is better. Downtown Monterey is just down one block so it isn't hard to find a good alternative.

    Dorm Life

    There are no dorms.

    Tips for prospective students

    network, network, network!

    In three sentences

    Great school with interesting coursework, enthusiastic professors, and lots of opportunities all over town and abroad. Everyone on campus is involved, or at least has the opportunity to be involved, in other on-campus events as there are numerous clubs, societies, and student-led activities.

  • Reviewer is Accepted here and planning to attend soon. Reviewer has been to campus.

    Food and Dining

    There are many quaint little places to dine around campus. MIIS is in the heart of Monterey so a short walk can get you almost any type of food you want.

    Dorm Life

    This campus does not have dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    I have not yet started classes but the academic aspect of the school seems intense.

    Tips for prospective students

    Have all your stuff together and actively check your status because the administration on this campus is not organized.

    In three sentences

    MIIS has very specific fields of study which is awesome because every one there has something in common. Every one I have met so far has been extremely friendly but, unorganized. Definitely call often to check your application status because they won't notify you if something is missing.
