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.

My experience at medaille has been the average college experience. The greatest part is how I met a few classmates along the semesters which became like family. Honestly, having someone at my corner keeps me focused, motivated, and striving to be successful. The teachers are very healpful and understanding. They are willing to work with you as long as you work with them. On the otherhand, parking at school is so terrible and depressing. Our parking lot behind school is sureound by a cemetery and there is very little amount of parking. Due to the limited parking spaces, if you have no spot good luck taking a shuttle to and from the Zoo. Yes i said it, the zoo. So, the benefical part of more parking spaces can perhaps increase attenadance and decrease tardiness. Medaille in all is such a great school not only for academic purpose, small classes, public safety 24/7, but also giving me hope, courage and motivation to want more in life and to be someone.
I was in the Veterinary Technology program at Medaille College. I found that the professors in the department were amazing and they helped me become involved some really interesting experiences such as interning at the County Fair, volunteering at a rescue farm, a wildlife rehabilitation hospital, and several necropsies outside of school. The classes really helped prepare me for the VTNE and all of the professors were so dedicated and helpful.
