Menlo is a unique college. Being small in size and located in the Silicon Valley makes for some good opportunities but this college is young and still has a lot to learn. This cost of attendance is almost fully paid for by scholarships that students get, however the facilities and housing are old and in poor condition seeing as how they haven't been touched by renovation since the 70's. The administration is often working against improving old facilities and the food service is awful. You have to work to find extracurricular activities and most students are there for sports. However the professors are very friendly and accessible to students, making academics the redeeming quality of this school.
Menlo College is a small campus full of diversity, personalities, and different cultures that we all bring into play with the school. We are able to express our cultures with support from the school with supportive teachers devoted to our academics as well as our future. Menlo College isnt only great with academics but has events happening everyday something new for the students and residents to do while here on campus. The events are my favorite part of Menlo, being able to come together at the events with your peers and enjoying the up lifting atmosphere Menlo College has to offer.
Menlo College is a small private school which is great for students who enjoy a concentrated learning environment. Students get to know their professors well and vice versa. Since Menlo College is a small private school, faculty create an activity night at least once a week free and available to all students like Tavern night and Monday night snacks.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Menlo College is 40%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Most importantly, if I could go back in tme and talk to myself about college, I would say to not stress so much about the application process! I took AP classes, studied for the ACT and SAT and made sure I turned in my apps super early. Looking back now, I realize that whatever decisions I felt like I could have or should have made, what classes or activities I should have done or been more active in, I ended up in the right place. High school students are pressured so much these days by counselors, teachers, parents, friends etc. to "choose the right school" because that will be your whole future. It doesn't matter what school one ends up at, what matters is how well you do when you get there. If one is a good student, focused organzed and did well in high school, one will be a good college student too. Menlo College was not my first choice and I ended up here by a twist of fate. It has worked out well for me and the "everything happens for a reason" mentality rang true in my situation and it will for others too.
The class size. It is not rare to see classes with ten students. Professors get to form a connection with the students.
The typical Menlo College student is young, goal oriented and athletic. Being an athlete is not necessary, but our athletic department makes up almost 60% of Menlo College's concentration. If a student is interested in graduating quickly and starting a career as soon as he/she graduates, Menlo College is the school to attend. Menlo College is also a tight-knit community, so the student should be looking to make close relationships with his/her fellow classmates,, professors, and staff.
The worst thing I believe about Menlo College is either how expensive it is or the limited major choices.
Menlo College is a very small, business-oriented school with a friendly community.
My classmates are very friendly, inspiring, smart, movtivating, and have goals that i can relate to.
Menlo College is best known for its business program. A variety of high profile business entrepreneurs have graced the presence of our school. We are also known for our sports programs because we have thirteen sports with only seven hundred students, creating an atmosphere where a good majority of the students are student-athletes.
It is unique becuase it is in the center of silicon valley and we get to see what businesses are succeeding and how they are doing it. We are an all business school so the college is able to focus strictly on one major and make the classes great.
If I could go back and give myself advice as a high school senior about college, I would tell myself that the most important thing about college is to be thoroughly organized, systematic, keep on top of your academics, pay attention to details, and observe carefully what your professors expect and give it to them as best as you can. Most of all, take care of your health, get physical exercise, participate and believe in yourself. Last but not least, I would say to enjoy my college experience!
I would say any student that would perfer a larger school should not come to Menlo. Plus you have to check the majors offered, because limited majors are offered.
That my classes are less than two minutes away from my dormroom and I my diet consists of healthy organic locally grown foods. This makes living and going to Menlo College very satisfying.
The most frustrating part about Menlo would have to be the cost of tuition constantly increasing, and the increase of money being given is not keeping up.
The academics are average. Some classes are really difficult whereas others are more on the easy side. If you put in the time and effort you can pass all your classes and learn a lot. If you are a psychology student, the best and most difficult professor to take is Dr. Hager. For Accounting, Professor Little is known to help many students find and achieve their accounting goals. Because classes are usually small, class participation is expected in the majority of classes. The biggest class I have taken was no more than 35 students and the smallest was 4.
Menlo College is a small and unified community that helps to provide a good education and amazing opportunities for business and psychology students. Everybody knows everybody. It is a place where professors give you their cell phone numbers and tell you to call them if you need help or have any questions. Menlo is surrounded by big cities, but nestled in the safe environment and one of the richest zip codes in the country, Atherton, CA. As for dorm life and student activities, the RAs and Student Union provide many different activities throughout the year. If you are looking for a small college that can help you get into the business world in Silicon Valley, look no further.
The typical stereotype is that Menlo contains a lot of jocks, aka dumb athletes. However, that is not true. Even though half of Menlo students are athletes, they are not dumb. Some are not as intelligent as other students similar to the population in real life. But many are extremely smart and know how to be good student athletes.
