everyone is so friendly and the campuses are beautiful
Chasidy from Salem, MA
It was everything I wanted in a college. The professors are smart and extremely helpful. I wouldn't want to go any place else.
Daniel from Plymouth, MA
It is a small but growing college, the professors are awesome and really know you. Everyone is willing to help you with what you need. The school also cares about the community which is rad.
Katie from Fitchburg, MA
Awesome school. I am a commuter and I still feel so much at home in this school .Like anything else, you really have to go out there and get your name heard more then anything else. Stay in your dorm and you'll be bored
