This school is smallQuite BrightOther
This school is small so quickly you learn to know everyone. Everyone has their own groups of friends it becomes clique like but no one truly needs to be friends with everyone you have your close friends and thats who you tend to hang around with.

Question
Mount Ida is a small school and becauseBright
Mount Ida is a small school and because it's small you know most kids on campus and the professors know who you are. It is close to Boston, so it is easy to get into the city whenever you want. We are also close to Newton Center if you have to go pick up a prescription or some groceries it is easy to do so. While the college is nice and quaint it is expensive to go here and there can be some problems for the kids that go here in dorm rooms. For instance, one of the resident halls, Wingate, has had water shut off a few times already this year and kids were left with no water to shower, or flush toilets. Not that this can't happen at any college. My opinion would be to make sure you want a small school and that you know you are responsible for how your college experience goes, it's not just the professors, or other residents job to make you happy here.

Question
This school is one that you either hate,Quite BrightPreVet and Veterinary
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.
