    I transferred into Fisher College my junior year and I can honestly say I am very happy I found this college. I chose Fisher because of the small class size and the location of the school. I am not just another student; my teachers know my name and I can reach out to them for extra help and recommendations. Our classes are filled with students from China, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, etc. It's been great to be able to hear different perspectives from different cultures. The location of the school is AMAZING. Everything is a T-ride away or a twenty-minute walk. When it's nice out, you can hang out on the docks behind the school, eat in China Town, bike around the Charles River, and explore all the events happening in the city. This is not a party school but you will live in a city with over 200,000 college students. Do not let partying affect your choice when picking a college. You will find plenty of things to do on the weekend that are off campus, trust me!

    When Covid caused classed switch from in person to online, our professors worked with us to make our learning as normal as possible. Although class is online, our faculty makes their lessons as engaging as possible!
    I am now a sophomore at Fisher College and so far, my experience has been great. Fisher has been a place for me to open up as and person, it is a place where I can truly be myself. Fisher is such a diverse and open school, they celebrate their students differences and they encourage individuality!
