    For Academics: Is pricy in my opinion. Is worth the money though. The academic side of it is the best side of it. The only worth while part of it. Dorms: Not worth the buck for most of the dorms. Food: Totally not worth the money invested.

    Nichols is a great school especially for that middle of the road student. I gave a great relationship with the professors and with my advisers.

    The Price of Nichols College may seem a bit much or just right to you, depending on your situation, the College experience and lessons you learn for the amount you pay is phenomenal. For everything you experience and the people you meet and how you feel here the price couldn't be any better.

    It cost $40,000 a year to live there but for that, I think you will get a good quality education for the price you pay that may even be comparable to a bigger school such as Boston College or Boston University. Also at Nichols, you get a career focused education that prepares you for life after college not just by teaching you the material but applying it and giving great examples of how it would be used in the real world.

    I received a lot of scholarships, so that helped me a lot. The school is expensive, but the experience will be worth it.
