What is your overall opinion of this school?

MCLA really does feel like home to me, I feel comfortable there and really like I fit in with the students immediately. Everyone is so friendly. No matter how hard you try though, it's college. People are experimenting, people party and probably try drugs but I don't hear about it often. It's not really my thing. I commute, so I'm there for my classes and then leave for work or hang out at home when I am done.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts is a very welcoming community. Being a smaller campus, the student, teacher ratio is 1:1 which is very beneficial for students who have learning disabilities such as myself. It is an excellent feeling knowing you have that connection between yourself and your professors and to receive help when needed and knowing you are not another number like other colleges or universities would have. It gives students a better opportunity to get to know their professors on a more personal level. The college itself is a great place to learn about theatre. With a diverse selection each year, students get the opportunity to work both on stage and behind the scenes, since our theatre department works as a normal theatre company would. We like to make sure we are well-balanced in this field in several ways, which for me has been very beneficial; as an actress in training, I have gained the skills to help me perfect my craft as well as to work with power tools in helping to create sets for our plays. It's the halfway mark for New York City.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it because it’s a small school and I’m pretty close to all of the professors. Academically it’s alright the professors could switch things sometimes but overall it’s not bad! All the classes I have taken if I had trouble with them I would go to the professors and they would stay with me until I finally understood what they were trying to teach.

MCLA is a great community to be a part of. with the small campus an small class size it doesn't take long to make friends and create great connections. everyone on the campus knows each other and are all very nice polite people to be around. this school is the perfect place to get away from the city and really focus on what needs to be done. its really a delightful place to be all year round

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that MCLA is a great school, there's a lot of opportunities presented to you, and the adults there are willing to help you succeed if you're willing enough to reach out. The food isn't all that great, but there are places nearby that are pretty tasty, within walking distance, and relatively cheap. Gluten-free options are far and few between. Sports are pretty great, I've heard some people complain about some coaches. The atmosphere is very open, safe, judge free environment. There are literally thousands of clubs that you can join on this campus as well if you're not interested in drama, sports, and/or fraternity. There are free therapy services at your disposal, and you can go to anyone on the campus and they are willing to help you. Professors are very helpful and understanding as long as you keep them in the loop, contact them, and let them know what's going on.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MCLA has a lot going for them, but I believe that the administration has to listen to what the students are asking for. Many of us are involved or trying to get involved, but when there are no professors, it is hard to get involved and ensure that you will graduate on time when there are always questions on if we will have professors the next year.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts is the perfect spot for me. The campus is extremely small meaning finding your niche is easy. There is something for everyone - it is an incredibly welcoming community. The professors are always available and willing to help. Despite the run-down town setting, there is always enough to do outside of the classroom.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

MCLA is a campus full of artistic and creative individuals who are very excepting. This campus is very friendly to everyone no matter your gender or sexuality. The professors really help you when your grades are down because you're more than just a number at this school. I'm actually apart of Greek Life and can tell you from personal experience that there is no pressure to join and that there are parties but it isn't overwhelming and you will get your schoolwork done. The only downside to this school is the crappy Cafeteria food, but we've been trying to change that through our SGA.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My overall opinion of the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts is that it MCLA adheres to it's "liberal arts" namesake in every way. Students are encouraged to branch out and become leaders on their campus. although there is always room for improvement, it provides the opportunity for an open dialogue between administrators and students. Small class sizes and open office hours give students the chance to build relationships with professors, which creates a productive learning environment.
