I really enjoyed the campus and it was small enough that everyone knows everyone. The community is really connected and is good at coming together. The forms are nice and even have their own bathrooms. Everyone at the school is very nice and I have multiple people say hi to me.
Nichols college is a place I have admired driving through every day. It is a prestigious business school with many extra curricular activities to take part in, and many opportunities to make college a fantastic experience. I am extremely impressed with the Nichols college campus and the people there, as they are extremely nice and well mannered.
My opinion is Nichols College is extremely advanced. The community is very clean and pretty. Everyone is super nice. I only have gone to visit for now but i love it. Everything is high tech and you always need a key to get into places. It helps you feel safe.
I love it here! As a commuter, I do not get to fully experience Nichols College. However, what I do experience is an atmosphere where everyone is not just focused on the now, but on their futures. Professors and faculty members genuinely put the students and their careers first.

No parent should push their child to attend a college or university that they do not want to attend. Every child should pick the college of their choice, they know best what fits them. I am currently a commuter student after living on campus my freshman and sophmore year. I do think it is importnt to try living on campus in order to gain a sense of independence and repsonsibility. Living on campus did not work out for me because I am not into the party scene, and since the commute from my home to Nichols is only 30 minutes, I was always at home. In college you have to be open-minded. You must be able to accept and try new things, if you don't you are not going to enjoy the experience.
My classmates are all close and spend most of their time with the people in their own grade.
Small very small
Small, friendly campus well known for job placement after graduation. Nichols is career oriented.
this school is small and somewhat close knit.
I wouldn't consider anything to be the worst thing about my school. Overall it is a wonderful place and has a very friendly and inviting atmosphere.
the book store and other facilities are closed on weekends.
Neither is true.
Although we are a private school, almost all students receive some sort of financial aid that helps them with their tuition costs. Also, through grants and scholarships, it makes it very affordable to attend the institution.
Also, many do play sports at Nichols, although there is a growing number of students that are choosing to go down a different path, whether it is through the many clubs and organizations we have on campus, or the many different departments that offer work study jobs and regular paid jobs.
Usually on average, a classroom size is about 25-35 students which is great because the professor usually gets to know you by first name. They get to see your strengths and weaknesses and are able to help you when the time comes, if you are having trouble in a certain chapter or section of the class. You’re known by a name here, not a number like some of the other big colleges around the area. Students study when it is needed and act very professional, since we are predominantly a business school. Students are not so competitive when it comes to the classroom, usually because many of the classes that are offered have students team up and work together to get a project or assignment done. The most unique class I have taken was my sophomore year; Physical World. I learned all about the effects of global warming and pollution around the world, and what we can do to stop it. Also learning about glacier melt and sea level rise was interesting to see what the world will look like in about a hundred years.
The education that is provided through Nichols is one that will have you learn a great deal about your major, but in addition, it will also prepare you for the “real world”. Nichols also offers a great and unique 4 year PDS program (Professional Development Seminar). This is a one credit course that is taken one semester each year, for four years. By the time you complete your senior year, you will have an immaculate resume, a portfolio with your greatest pieces of work to show potential employers, great interviewing skills, and a general knowledge of how to negotiate sales. With a 95% job placement rating within 6 months of graduation, the school gets you ready for the rest of your life.
All Clubs have a good rep to them. Sports have the greatest interest. We have a rugby club and hockey club that have gotten some good positive feed back in the last couple of years. Student ambassadors have a good interest, which gives tours to interested high school seniors. The ambassadors have a great working environment for a work study. If you want to make up a club, all you need is a sponsor and about 6 people to start it up.
Students that reside in Shamie (freshman) tend to leave their doors open just because it opens up the room and gives people a chance to stop by. Other halls, people do not keep their doors open because most have a common room and people don’t want to leave the main door to their appt open.
That only rich kids attend. That's not true. Most are middle class and a sizeable chunk are low income.
The best thing about Nichols College is that it is a very close community and very friendly. Saying hello to someone you don't know happens daily here on campus. In addition, we have some of the most scenic views, sitting on top of a hill with almost a 360 degree view of mountain landscape.
We are a smaller school (1,100+ enrolled - 2008) but i feel it goes well with the rural theme of campus. It’s hard to say where most of the time is spent, because its usually everywhere. It could be in one of the 11 Residence Halls we have or the Student Center or in Davis. Nichols College demonstrates great pride throughout the campus, during any season. There is a great attendance when it comes to sporting events or cultural’s that we have on campus and people get active around the community.
I enjoy small classes and getting to know my professor's and classmates.
Where are the good fast foods restaurants
Someone who likes large cities and not being any farther than 10 minutes from the nearest mass. If you're not here for business, don't come. If you don't want small classes, Nichols is not a good choice.
Mostly Business Majors.
