Bay Path University is a one of a kind school that let's it's students find themselves and their place in the world. The professors here are some of the best I have ever met. This small university is a second family where women are taught the value of asserting themselves in this man's world and making themselves known.
Natalya from Chicopee, MA
Expensive but you recieve good financial aid. The area is beautiful! The college is NON PROFIT which means they are not out to just make money, they care about you.
Samantha from Suffield, CT
Bay Path is a small school with a welcoming atmosphere. Literally, anyone that you pass will gladly help you, if you ask. Their facilities are amazing and because the school is small, you get a lot of personal attention.
Elizabeth from North Easton, MA
If anyone is looking for a school to not only help them find their perfect career goal, but to find out more about yourself, this is the place to go. Through programs such as WELL I have learned how important it is for women to take charge of their futures. This school has been one of the most welcoming place I have ever been.
Dominique from Waterbury, CT
Bay Path is a wonderful college with a great community-like feel to it. Professors, students, and even facility workers are always so friendly. Plus, the school has pretty decent food!
