Small campus that never seizes to feel like a home. The staff know you as an individual and genuinely show they care about everyone. It’s everything I looked for in a college, and everything I didn’t even know I would need!
College of Our Lady of the Elms is an excellent four year institution. Faculty and staff strive on being accommodating and are readily available to answer phone calls and emails. The campus alone is small and offers a wonderful opportunity for small class sizes and one-on-one help. The library is a wonderful place to study and help with academic research. Overall, College of Our Lady of the Elms is an excellent opportunity for students to get the help they need due to the lower volume of students.
