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 went to MIC the years of 04-06.BrightPsychology
I went to MIC the years of 04-06. During my expierence at the time, the facilities were disgusting. def not cleaned properly. I didnt find the work load/classes too challenging. I felt like i was in high school, including campus life as well. I met a lot of good people when i went to school there and had a lot of fun, however it is a very small campus. Just like high school there was too much drama/gossiping/etc. The years i was there i had a really good time, and the party life was pretty good. The last year i attended in 06, it seemed the party life on campus was disapeering. looking back on it, it was a good expierience and a lot of fun, but def not worth the endless phone calls from sallie-mae.
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.
