Did learn a lot
The teachers are always there for you and are only an email away when outside the classroom. It is impossible to fail because the teachers are always caring and they want you to succeed.
Did enjoy being here
Its all about making the best of your time there. Make as many friends as you can because that is what made me enjoy the experience. To be completly honest, the area where the school is located is kind of isolated. The closest city life is 15-20 minutes away for things to do if not on campus which is worcester and other areas where you can have fun outside the classroom and off campus. The food is good, i must admit. I always looked foward for breakfeast lunch AND dinner. Dorming life was awesome, i loved my roomate and friends. The library is a huge help for sources and guidance and they have a great academic helping system everyday that helps you if you are struggling a bit.
Bang for the buck
The school helps you out alot, there is alot of financial aid available and i did learn alot so it is worth it if you want a small classroom experience. The campus is isolated and not much to do outside of campus but the people are great on campus.
Tips for prospective students
Make friends, be VERY involved, play sports and study. By following these you will love your experience.
Great for these types of students
Mostly if you love small classroom environment. Almost anyone fits but if you like the city life, this isnt the place for you. Other than that it is safe, quiet and a very supportive school.

In three sentences
Nichols College is a small four year business school. It is located in the rural area of Dudley Massachusetts. If you are looking for a place to start fresh and create your own identity, Nichols College is the place to start.
Tips for prospective students
One of the most important tips i can offer to perspective students is to get involved. With Nichols being a small school, there is many things that you can take part in which would look great on your resume.
Academic Rigor
The Professors are great and with small classes, this school really creates a working environment.
Dorm Life
the Dorms at this college are great. there is parking available to all students. Free laundry, cable, electricity, wi-fi, and telephone service. Some of the dorms even allow for students to have their own bathrooms.
Food and Dining
Buffet style dining for every meal. there are always five sections open; pizza, sandwich, grilled, entree, and saute
What to do for fun
There are many clubs such as paintball, ski, international, track and field, and many others. Each club attends trips and events during the school year.

Nichols is a business focused school so any major that you choose will have some element of business to it. Also, you are required to take certain business classes such as accounting. This may seem like something that many may not want to do, but it makes sense because no matter what avenue we choose after college, knowing how to operate a business, perhaps our own, is a necessity and Nichols is definitely the place to go for this. Also many of these business classes can be put into good use in your own life because they will make you a better person who is more organized and has better finances.
Am enjoying being here
Nichols is a great small school. You have more than enough opportunity to connect with other students through daily life or clubs. Also the professors are always available and are more accommodating than they might be in larger schools.
Bang for the buck
It cost $40,000 a year to live there but for that, I think you will get a good quality education for the price you pay that may even be comparable to a bigger school such as Boston College or Boston University. Also at Nichols, you get a career focused education that prepares you for life after college not just by teaching you the material but applying it and giving great examples of how it would be used in the real world.

The school is a small school and that was what I was looking for when I did my college search last year. Teachers know who you are because your class size (which is usually about 20 kids per class). For me this helped because in big schools it is hard to get help if needed. There is great opportunity to get help from ARC which is a great free resource for students who need help.

As far outside of classes the campus is great. It is a small campus so you really get an opportunity to meet pretty much anyone. It is fairly a new college to most, but it is rising to become known. It is kind of in the middle of no where but when your on campus you can get to any big city within 45mins usually. What convinced me about the schools was spending one night there and I knew the campus was perfect because of the atmosphere of your peers.
Tips for prospective students
When you first arrive on campus leave your door open, the first couple days are really important try to meet everyone you can, and if you leave your door open people will stop in. Also don't stay in your room all day!!! Get out and around campus. Shamie (which is the freshman dorm) has a great quad like area where people hang out outside all the time when the weather is nice: they play catch, play soccer, WIFFLE BALL (people love to play wiffle ball), some just lay out. Also try to get into as much as you can the first year then decide what you want to stay with for the rest of your time at Nichols.

DON'T BE AFRAID TO EXPERIENCE NEW THINGS!!!
Great for these types of students
Really anyone fits in for the most part! But the school is great for ATHLETES because the majority of the population plays sports or just LOVE sports in general.
