What Students Are Saying

3.43 Average Rating
Despite its lackluster buildings, MCLA is a really great community and a great college to get a degree from. The campus is made up of old buildings with new ideas and the two of them together create a great atmosphere that lets students have all of the great perks of today's society with the old buildings of North Adams that give our campus character. It is a well-lived on campus, it really feels like a home away from home and is a great place to meet new people, study, and get a degree.
