Most Helpful Review for Vassar College

Unlike many schools out there, Vassar professors are not only intelligent, good teachers, they also take the time to attend to their students. The in class lectures were always interesting, if not always easy to understand. However, I can always approach them outside of class to learn more. I never felt like I was missing out on the full learning experience of class because the professors WANT you to learn all you can.

    Vassar has challenging academics and a vibrant social atmosphere, and students here are very good at balancing both. Vassar advocates an environment of inclusion and social awareness that ensures every student is made to feel at home. Overall, Vassar is as much of an experience as it is an education.

    I saw the school today and it was gorgeous. Everyone was so nice and welcoming. Although there is barely anything to do in Poughkeepsie, the college more than makes up for that.

    An acclaimed school with small classes and great teachers. The classes are hard. The student body is composed of activists and similarly open minded people.
