Bay State offers hands on learning that actually correlates to the profession or interests you may have when attending. They also provide many resources such as career fair days, internship connects, and other outlets to help open doors to furthering one's career or fashion. I love Bay State, for the teachers are really willing and dedicated to ensuring the students' success both in the classroom and in the real world. Bay State does their best to prepare each and every student for the work place post graduation. Speaking from my own personal experience, Bay State will not let a single student leave their school with confusion or doubts, their number one priority is to ensure and give their students the best possible chance to succeed in life post college.

In the short time I have been at Bay State, I already feel proud to attend this school and nursing program. The faculty are competent and are well-receiving of our thoughts on the school. I feel very much a part of the community.
Bay Path has been a life saver for me. It has helped provide me with an opportunity to reach my goal and earn my bachelors degree. The way the semesters work I am able to take more classes then if I were attending a college with traditional semesters. I am on target to graduate in the spring. I was able to finish my degree in just two semesters. My first semester I took online classes for my first two sessions. I took an on campus course during my third semesters. At first I was nervous and dreaded it. As the class went on, I was able to connect with fellow classmates in a way I never expected. Everyone was very welcoming and encouraging. I love the fact that a lot of my classmates are in the same situation as I. I am an adult learner, I work full time, I am a wife, and a mother. Juggling everything all at once is a difficult task, but it is more manageable when I have a great support system.
