College of Our Lady of the Elms Reviews
I attend this school as a postbacc student and I think that their program is fantastic. It's a small community, but it embraces people from all walks of life. The smallness of the school is also advantageous because it allows students to get to know professors and really be heard when they need their questions answered. If you're looking for a program to complete your pre-med coursework, Elms is definitely a top choice.
Elms college offered me a satelite program for reduced price offered at a neighboring community college, Holyoke Community College. I obtained my Associate's degree here, and it was nice to be able to go back to work on by Baccaleureate degree. The professors were very knowledgeable and helpful in working through the material.
It is super easy to arrange a meeting or pop in to a professor's office to get questions answered, go over an exam or assignment, or to try to figure out the best route to get help. The ARC program in the library is a life saver! Its super easy to make tutoring sessions and the two tutors I've worked me have helped me greatly in my problem areas. I love pretty much everything but the one thing I wish the school had more of would be places to eat because there is only a tiny Starbucks café and cafeteria and sometimes they don't have what you're craving for.
