People who have a problem with small atmospheres,Super BrilliantNursing
People who have a problem with small atmospheres, this place is not for you. Anna Maria is a smaller place with a friendly community, where peopel acctually know your name. Expanding and developing, Anna Maria is really trying to grow and improve on the number of residenatal students, and the department of residents life is ever vigilant making sure that students are accomaditing and having their needs meet. The staff in the residence life department is kind, friendly, and nuturing. It is interesting to see each of them working with the students. Michelle Cash. the assistant director of reslife is knowledgeable of the student population and willing and ready to meet new incoming students and watch them grow through the college expirence. People say cruel things about AMC but that really show how much involvment they have had in the school. The more involved on campus the better your personal expirence will be. Living on campus was a great benefit, and the halls provide a wonderful learning environment, as well as a safe and friendly living environment. Reslife is the backbone to AMC and Michelle (who is in charge of the housing assignments) really work hard to make sure that you are comfortable in this place. GOOD JOB AMC :D

Question
AVOID ANNA MARIA LIKE THE PLAGUE.Quite BrightOther
AVOID ANNA MARIA LIKE THE PLAGUE.
There are three types of undergrads at AMC:

1. Arrogant loud insecure semi "atheletes"
2. Music, art, and theatre majors with the same social skills that one would imagine people of such "aesthetic appeal" would posess in high school. (If you understand this entry and it's tone then you are far too smart for AMC unless you want a quick degree and a huge tuition bill)

3. Individuals who keep to themselves for the most part, are probably here on scholarship, and either transfer out at the first oppurtunity or graduate owing very little to the school.

The kids at AMC are the kind of people you would be wise to avoid after losing contact with. Its very rare to find intelligent and interesting people at this school and the faculty are just as appealling as the student body.

Michelle Cash, the resident advisor is a condacending moody ex grad, with an air of entitlement to authority and very little respect for the students at the school. Again, to all the people interested in going to this wretched academy think twice.

Question
I'm shocked at all the negative reviews.Quite BrightUndecided
I'm shocked at all the negative reviews. I really love AMC and I know a lot of other people who feel the same.

ResLife- The way I see it ResLife isn't too great anywhere. The staff is helpful but they are looking for ways to get the most money out of you. Madonna sucks- I've never lived there. But it really needs to be updated or totally demolished. The other dorms aren't bad! They are all new and modern. Central Air. Decent Bathrooms. RAs- some are assholes. a lot of the girls are bitches.

Academics- In all honesty the school work isn't too hard. I wasn't expecting it to be really hard. But thats the thing- everyone swears up and down that its easy... easier than highschool then they fail out. If its so easy why are you on academic probation? And trust me, a lot of people are on probation or will leave for grades. The professors at AMC are great. They are always helpful and really do try to get to know their students. They're always willing to talk about anything and everything when they're free.

Food- Sodexco wasn't bad. Last semester they started listening to students and it got good. But it wasn't that healthy. We have a new company called Sage now starting fall 2011.

Technology- computers are everywhere on campus. but updates need to happen. The library should be updated. Some parts of some dorms have no internet service either.

People- Theres some really cool people to meet at AMC. I've had some great times here and met best friends. A lot of people will be close minded since they are local and will only hang out with people they know from highschool/hometowns. Its easy to make friends here. Though you will see alot of people go. I think its getting better with class of 2014 & 15. But the upperclassmen have something like 40% of their original class left. people dropout, get terrible grades, transfer, don't go to class or can't afford it.

Social life- Theres parties and fun times. Obviously theres no ripper frat parties. Madonna was always the place to go but now that its freshman I guess the suites be where the parties are. A lot of people go to shady clubs in worcester or providence for thursdays/weekends.
