The class sizes are small so professors know every student by name. This is very helpful because class time is more personal, more attention is paid to individual students,questions are gladly answered, and overall you get more out of class in my opinion. The professors are extremely knowledgeable and fit for their jobs. I have never had a professor who was not openly available for extra help outside of class.
Am enjoying being here
This is a smaller-sized school but not too small. I know many people on campus and everyone is friendly and says hi as you walk by. However, there are some people I do not know. Therefore, in my opinion, this is a perfect size for a school. I feel as if I am learning everything I will need to be successful in my field of choice. There are many clubs, sports, and activities going on around campus that anyone can get involved in. Night life off-campus is great as well. There are bars within close proximity that are great quality, not too expensive, and an overall great environment.
Bang for the buck
Tuition is going up here as it is everywhere in a not-so-good economy. However, the college is great at helping with financial aid, much financial aid is available, and the college gives out a lot of financial aid to deserving students. I applied to 8 colleges and none of the other 7 compared to the amount of financial aid I received from Springfield College.
Tips for prospective students
Get out there and meet people! Join clubs, try out for sports, do intramurals. There are so many opportunities on this campus. Take advantage of them!
Great for these types of students
athletes, people who love to volunteer and/or get involved with the community and other activities

I have only attended Springfield College for one year but I honestly feel that the quality and level of education at Springfield is outstanding. I feel that I have retained more information then ever. I understand concepts more clearly and I am able to apply what I learn to everyday life and I feel that I will carry everything that I have learned with me into my career.
Am enjoying being here
I love every moment on campus. It is a beautiful campus and there are so many activites and programs for students to get involved. I have taken advantage of the gym which is extensive and offers many classes for students who are looking for more than just the basic gym routine. From comedians, to students singers, to poets, and intellectual speakers come to perform giving students and opportunity to get outside of their dorm room and spend their time enjoying themselves around campus. Further activities like bingo, rollerskating, fit festival, and more are many of the reasons why Springfield College has made my time there very enjoyable.
Bang for the buck
Since Springfield College is a private college it is relatively expensive, however if a person has the ability to fund their education at Springfield College it is definitely worth it. I have spent hours applying for scholarships and grants to make sure that I can go to Springfield College because I know that there is no other college that I would rather attend. While I understand that many colleges allow students to take the minimum amount of credits, Springfield College allows students to take the maximum amount of credits while being able to manage school work and a social life. This way one is able to graduate with a broad and extensive education.
Tips for prospective students
I would encourage students to visit Springfield College before they make their final decision on picking a school. Personally before I attended Springfield College I was unsure about the school because Springfield College was located in the city of Springfield. But once I visited Springfield College I realized that i didn't feel like I was in a city at all. I was comfortable on campus and the visit was what made me solidify my decision to attend Springfield College
Great for these types of students
Springfield College is a school who is best for students who are interested in health sciences and rehabilitation studies. It is a great school for athletics and students who are looking to play sports in school. Springfield also highlights on educating the whole self as the spirit, mind, and body. So if a student is interested in really getting to know who they are as a person and a student Springfield College is the right place for them.

I am in the Occupational Dual Degree program, have only been here for one semester, and have learned an extensive amount about the field of OT. Even the basic classes for freshman for all majors give you a lot of knowledge about the field and make you more comfortable about your future.
Am enjoying being here
Everyone on campus is extremely friendly and want to make new friends. There is an endless amount of clubs to join and activities to attend, even on week nights.
Bang for the buck
The campus is always in great condition, and you are rarely taught by a GA. The majority of the professors here are great and love what their doing, and have real knowledge of what their teaching.
Tips for prospective students
Visit the campus a lot and talk to current students and alumni about their time here.
Great for these types of students
Anyone looking to go into some sort of health science, physical education, or exersice related major.

Am learning a lot
I am learning a lot here at Springfield college the professors and staff are very friendly and willing to help you out. They help you to better understand the material that you are being taught. Last semester it was very easy for me to get good grades because Springfield has a very well rounded learning environment. The class room sizes are normally on the smaller side which allows for more one on one time with your professors. It also makes it easier for you to make yourself known to them. All of this combined creates the formula for awesome grades.
Am enjoying being here
Living at Springfield is very enjoyable, there is always something going on whether it be sporting events or late night activities in the campus union. The dorms are very nice on the inside and everyone is very friendly making the experience of being away at college all the more exciting.
Bang for the buck
I would say that for the money I am paying to attend Springfield college the benefits are well worth it. I am learning more and achieving higher goals than I ever did in high school. Everything you need and more is right on campus. Also the school is kept together very well, the grounds look amazing as well as the dorms providing you with easy living.
Tips for prospective students
Tips I would give to prospective students would be utilize the campus resources, you already are paying for them so why not use them to your advantage. It will make school go much smoother for you. Also be friendly, it will pay off.
Great for these types of students
Great for students who want to better themselves spiritually, mentally, and physically, while still having fun doing it.

Springfield College is friendly and the students are outgoing. The college is small, like a close-knit family. It is also very organized, with wonderful classes and professors.
Tips for prospective students
Stay organized, go to class, and do your homework!
Academic Rigor
The classes are difficult, but as long as you stay focused, you will succeed.
Dorm Life
Dorm life is phenomenal; it's fun and exciting! You can have fun doing legal things, instead of drinking and drugs.
Food and Dining
Cheney Hall has phenomenal food! We also have Subway and Dunkin' Donuts on campus.
What to do for fun
There's tons of weekend and weeknight activities depending on the time of year. There are events based on holidays, seasons, and some events are just for pure fun!
Bang for the buck
Springfield College is definitely worth the $45,000.00 per year!

SC is very friendly and welcoming. It has a open atmosphere and everyone tries to say hi to everyone.
Tips for prospective students
If you want to get in then promote the community service you have done or leadership skills including sports.
Academic Rigor
I am a criminal justice major and it is not that hard to keep up with. However, I am a exception and any major that is a science will be very rigorous and intense.
Dorm Life
I think the dorms are great and when you come in here you should live in gulick if your a freshman. Then later Abbey if your a sophomore and Living Center as a junior if you can get in but abbey is fine. Finally, for a senior go for the senior suites.
Food and Dining
in comparsion to others Springfield College is the best though once you get used to it you start to get annoyed. the union is the best for fresh food and quality
What to do for fun
if your 21 then the bars and clubs are a lot of fun and inexpensive. if your not then there are 18+ clubs. also there are so many clubs, events, and activities to do so you don't have to go off-campus
Bang for the buck
40,000 a year is a lot of money though luckily there are scholarships to be given out and if your a RA they pay for your food and half of your housing
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
they have a freshman orientation that is so much fun
Great for these types of students
athletic, very active, friendly, and ready to have fun
Clubs and Activities
there are so many, i'm on the ski club. student judicial board, hall council , and career center advisory board
Greek Life
none they are not allowed but the sport teams take over for that
Campus Safety
it is a very safe place on campus with few instances and most of the time people from small towns who are not used to a city life blow up the small time problems into huge ones

Definitely worth the money. The school has just been renovated and its beautiful. Also, laundry is built into your tuition which is pretty awesome.
