This school was a perfect fit for me. The people were really friendly; it was easy to get involve. They listen to the student?s opinion. If you want to party you can party, if you want to study, you can study. You make the best of it. YES, some of the residents are not the best, but trust me, I seen much worst, the new building is amazing, something for freshmans to look forward to. They have programs for just about anything and everyone. TLC for low income and first generation students; SALSA club for Latinos; BSAC for African Americans, great honors program, LOP for student with learning disabilities and many others. You are always rewarded for your hard work. At Mount Ida I learn so much in the classroom and outside as well. Yes, the college is small. BETTER!! All the attention is on you. You are missed if you don't go to class. The president knows your name, the cafeteria people know who you are. I made the best of it when I was there, you could too. Some people might talk bad about MIC, make sure you ask if they got kicked out for doing something bad or got bad grades for not showing up to class, trust me it happens. I do have a lot of students? loans, Sallie MAE hunts me. All colleges are like that, regardless where you go; unless you get a full scholarship you will have student loans. I see it as an investment on me, the person I am today thanks to Mount Ida College.
This school is one that you either hate, or love. There's not much to do on campus, though they are trying really hard to fix that. They recently started an accapella group, and have special shows on weekends sometimes. Its definitely some place where you need to search for things to do and not just lay around. The opportunities aren't just going to fall into your hands. In my experience the most prevalent thing that people do on campus is smoke, but that's only because its easy to do and everyone does it. The teachers are pretty helpful, and know what they are talking about, aside from a few that don't speak very good English. If you come here and DO YOUR WORK, you will get you money's worth. The Vet Tech and Dental programs are VERY hard. If you're not willing to work, then you should pick something else. Malloy hall is pretty nice. It is suite style and you share 2 bathrooms with a total of 12 people (yourself included). Its easy to go into Boston with access to the free shuttle, which is not always reliable, but it gets you to where you need to go. A lot of the people here are not the brightest. If you're smart, I would only come here for either the Vet Tech Program or Dental program. Everything else here is a joke. With that being said, I think you should come here for a tour and visit before you take my word for it. Its all about what you want.
“i was a fashion major at mount ida.Not so brightOther
i was a fashion major at mount ida. Good luck trying to transfer mount ida credits relating to your major into the same major at a new school. Most schools dont recognize them as anything but an elective. Do not go to this school unless you're 100% sure you'll stay there for graduation. Otherwise mount ida is a waste of time and money. Most students are spoiled and have nothing to do but gossip. The campus is nice but the residence halls are out of date (except the new building, which is poorly designed.) the teachers are excellent. There is a lot of pot on campus and excessive drinking. I would not reccomend this school.
