Fisher College is a good school though it possesses pros and cons as do many schools. If you're a student that is looking for a smaller amount of students including class sizes then this would be a good school for you. Fisher College is located in Back Bay Boston and is surrounded by many stores as well as fun things to do all year long.

Sami

Fisher College is . . . different. Basically, be absolutely sure this is where you want to go. If you didn't do very well in high school this school is good for you. The classes, especially for freshman, aren't very intensive, and the class sizes are relatively small too.; about high school class size. The classes themselves are pretty nice. Also, living on campus kind of sucks. Every building is different, so definitely ask current residents what their building is like. Right now my room has no heating even after we've put in three maintenance requests, so, it is what it is. Things here close a little early, especially on Fridays and the weekend Also, despite what Fisher says, students here like to party. A lot.

Bianca

Fisher is an overall great college and I'm not just saying that because I am a current student. The professors are amazing. I love how the advisors make time to keep in touch regarding registering for courses or how I am doing in them. I also like that there isn't an unnecessary work load where you find yourself stressing weekly assignments that are due that Sunday by 11:59PM. It's location is everything near many food restaurants and boutiques. Newbury street is a few blocks over with all of the most popular stores to shop in. It's a great !

Rachel

I love it. The blackboard application that we use to submit our assignments is very productively laid out. It is easy to use and assignments are well planned out and elaborated on. The grading is done fairly and rather quickly. The professors are readily available if you have any questions.
