The professors and staff are great! However, I think they need a couple more classes on computer programs, like on how to use Excel and Microsoft. Also, there’s an internship program we have before we graduate. We are required to get an internship before we graduate. I think they e should’ve done more explains in the program andcguie is step by step. They had two or three sessions explsing to us about the program, but they didn’t really help us find one. They emailed us on how our search was going and wanted to keep up on our search status, but they didn’t help us secure one which I thought they were supposed to do.
Menlo is home. No one loves being at home every second of the day and of course you can get tired of it and want to leave sometimes, but it is ultimately your safe space. That is Menlo. Here, you can mold your college experience into whatever you want. There is no other place that you can have coffee with your professor, play in a sports game, go cheer on fellow athletes, go to class, eat in your buffet, print your 10 page paper (for free), and then go to SF for the night all in one day! It just doesn't happen. I know it is cheesy, but you are a name and not a number at Menlo. We all support each other and it you are literally living with 850 family members. You don't like them all and some are distant cousins, but at the end of the day we are all Oaks. If given the chance to do it again, I wouldn't change a thing.
