Anna Maria College is a small private school in Paxton, Massachusetts. The small tight-knit community is welcoming and feels like home. All of the professors want you to achieve your goals and are always willing to provide advice in the career path you are choosing. My advisors are amazing and consistently reach out throughout the course of the semester to "check-in" and make sure I am trying my best in all my classes. My professors are challenging, yet understanding of the workload of other classes. The Student Success Center is by far my favorite place on campus because there are tutors who have taken the classes you are struggling in and they are willing to help you.

When Anna Maria transitioned to online learning this spring semester, not only did my professors email me, but my advisors did as well. My advisors wanted to make sure that students were not overwhelmed with the workload online because even though we were home, they did not want us sitting in front of the computer screen for the entire day. My professors set up weekly zoom meetings that were personal but still academically focused. They wanted to make sure that we were handling their workload without being stressed with the situations in the world.
I love Anna Maria College so very much! It is truly a community where people are friendly and service-oriented. I have felt most comfortable being who I truly am here and I know that others do, as well. Yes, it is a college founded by the catholic Sisters of Saint Anne, but all are welcome here. I have been inspired by the campus ministry director who invites all to be who they are and practice what they believe even at religious-based celebrations. Oh, and the campus grounds are so beautiful and peaceful. I have always felt safe walking around the whole campus, including in the nature that surrounds the campus, even in the night. Be sure to visit the pond near the back in between classes.
