| I was extremely disappointed with their Fashion Design program. I took two classes my first semester: Draping & Couture, Basic Clothing Construction I|
In Draping and Couture, there was a pleasant older woman who taught the class but zipped through everything so quickly that nobody understood what she meant. One time she said, "Everyone get it?" and when everyone murmured and basically said no, her response was, "OK, Moving on..." Yes, seriously.
The Construction class was even worse. The teacher would literally do ONE demo at the beginning of class and that was it. I would go up to her frequently and ask her if I was doing a stitch right and her response was, "This stitch is on page 85 in your textbook." In other words, "You're on your own, kid. Don't bother me." Maybe I'm picky, but aren't teacher's supposed to TEACH?
Seriously, I could've (and have) learned more with youtube tutorials and a decent textbook (not the ones they suggested) than from the professors in this program. Needless to say, I switched schools immediately.

| First of all, do not expect anything great from this school. If your looking for the typical college life, look elsewhere. Most students go home on the weekend, and since I'm from out of state it feels like a ghost town. The students are dumb, potheads, alcoholics who only care about thirsty Thursday. No one goes to class on friday mornings. The food is even worse! Its either greasy or tasteless, expect to find the same food every week. The freshman dorms are quite old and nasty. The campus is so small that you will run into the same people everyday. People know everyone's business. Most of the guys are jock meatheads, don't expect to find a love interest here. It gets so boring, Boston is ATLEAST an hour commute, the shuttle to the T is terrible and freshman cant have cars on campus! In conclusion, come here if you have lowered your expectations about what college is or should be! |

| Mount Ida is not the best school but I took some classes that were excellent, outside my major which was Graphic Design. The Graphic Design program is not good but the faculty is very friendly. The registration office is probably the worst department of this college, the people that works on this area are rude. I would not recommend this school for a career in Graphic Design or Fashion Design. Overall been in Boston and Newton was an excellent experience. |
