There's a huge advantage of going to aAverageCommunications
There's a huge advantage of going to a school with less than 500 students. Basically. everyone knows everyone. That includes, the all the students, the faculty, and the staff. The only downside is that news travels very fast. In my four years at PMC, I became very close with many students through my involvement with theatre and athletics, as well as with members of the faculty and staff. I know that had I gone to a big state university, I wouldn't have had such a close relationship with my professors, especially my advisor. It's also wonderful being so close to Boston, without actually being IN Boston. You can just hop on the bus or the subway, and you'll be in the city in no time.

My experience so far at PMC has beenQuite BrightSociology
My experience so far at PMC has been good. People here are just takes a little while to find your group and get used to all that 'diversity'. One of the best things about it is the area & how close it is to Boston. (The campus shuttle needs to run more often though, since the nearest T station is about a half mile away.) If you like small campuses, this is the place for you. Since it's so small, you'll run into someone you know everywhere you go..even teachers. The small class size is also appealing. Everyone knows your name, and not just because they're calling it from the roster. Also, Chestnut Hill is a very safe neighborhood, and if you're like me and considered other Boston area colleges, you'll realize what a deal PMC is financially. Go 5 miles into the city and you'll be paying about $20,000 MORE a year!

I think Pine ManorBrightBiology
I think Pine Manor is a great place to go to college. the atmosphere is nice, not competitive. Most of the students know each other, because the college is so small. There is tons of individual attention and the professors are close with the students. I really love it here.
