Medaille College Reviews
I love the energy Medaille has to offer when you first step foot in the campus. I was just a curious non decided guy looking for the perfect college for me. When I first visited Medaille I immediately was drawn to the classes I was interested in. I now am attending Medaille for the majors Veterinary Technology/Biology. The only thing I would change about Medaille is how far it is from home but other than that, I love it!
I have recently just finished my first year at Medaille and it was better than I ever could have expected. Before entering my freshman year I had began to second guess my choice of school and academic field. But upon arriving on campus I was reassured everything was going to be okay. The teachers are beyond helpful both in the classroom and outside of it. They made the transition from high school to college so easy! The small campus gives a sense of a community atmosphere. Everyone is so friendly it seems like you have a friend every where you go. The athletics of the school is probably my least favorite part. The school is division 3 and offers a decent amount of sports teams, but I wish they had more. There are a bunch of clubs at Medaille and the good news is, if they don't have one you like, you can start your own! There is always a lot of things to do on campus but I feel like there is not enough notice.
I have experienced very nice, professional, and helpful people at Medaille. Everyone as a whole has been very kind to me, answering any questions I may have had. The school itself is very beautiful from the inside and out. I like the location of the school and the majors they have to offer. It also has many different clubs to join. Each being run by students. The is very organized and simple to navigate. They have very nice dorms that seem to be very clean and managed. It has very well arranged parking lot. Easy to navigate through and simple to travel around. I was able to get my schedule months prior to school beginning. All students I have encountered have been nice and well mannered people. All teachers I've come into contact with have also been very professional with me answering any questions I may have about the school, how things may be run, where to get certain things from, and where to meet certain people. Being at Medaille has been an overall amazing experience.
