What Students Are Saying

3.56 Average Rating
Some advice that I would offer prospective students if they plan on either applying or attending Menlo, they should really look at what they really want to do because Menlo has connections around Silicon Valley & if you perhaps meet people who know people, you will then start working your way up the rank. I would also recommend that students should apply to some outside scholarships because some students might not get the full academic scholarship & it could be hard to pay for at the start of school.

Do not think twice: attend Menlo College. It is not nessesary to declare a major your freshman year, there is plenty of time to decide.

Menlo may be small, and look quiet, but it packs a punch.
Alesi from Atherton, CA
This school is definitely very accepting of anyone that joins our Menlo community, so if you ever decide to join Menlo College it is very easy to make friends and learn a lot of new things you never knew about yourself before.
Cameron from Sacramento, CA
Get involved with the school and your college experience will be a hundred times better than expected.
Charnae from San Diego, CA
Go to College with an Open Mind! Chances are they are as scared as you are! Be open to new experiences and making new friends! Don't try to attend a college where all your friends will be. The point of college is to move on from High School, so choose a school thats best for YOU, not for your FRIENDS.
