When I attended this school, residence life wasSuper BrilliantPsychology
When I attended this school, residence life was horrible, the professors had absolutely no idea what they were doing, and the students were entitled and rude.Upon leaving Newbury College, it became apparent that, at least in psychology, I was in no way prepared for the working world. When I got my master's degree elsewhere, that was when I felt competent and prepared. Newbury was a waste of money, and if it hadn't been for the graduate program I chose at a different university, I'd be out of luck in the job market.

Newbury College is where you go to havePsychology
Newbury College is where you go to have the life sucked out of you and your dreams dashed. Seriously. Don't do it.

The faculty members and students are truly sick people who need all the help they can get. Before I transferred, I thought this was just the way college was. Now that I've spent a good amount of time at a new school, it can't even compare. Avoid Newbury Highshchool at all costs!!! Go somewhere where you'll be challenged, where 99% of students aren't only there because they could never handle a real school, and faculty who isn't competent enough to teach elsewhere.You're welcome.

I hate Newbury College! This College has noBrightOther
I hate Newbury College! This College has no right to be a college. The majority of teachers don't know what their teaching and end up quoting or leaving the next semester. My major was Health Care Management and had a professor who was a first year and had no Idea what she was doing! Never seen her at the school since then. I swear Newbury College hires random people who have slight knowledge in a major to teach. The school has no gym, a work out room that about the size of a walk-in closet, horrible dorms, disgusting food, and theres nothing fun to do on campus. Going to this school was THE WORST decision I've ever made in my life. If you wan't to go to an actual college where your not surrounded by loud, obnoxious, high-school like students, then I suggest that you don't apply here. Any college, university, or community college would be way more beneficial than Newbury.
