Menlo College was a phenomenal experience.

The support that I received during my time here was unreal. Like most things, you get from Menlo exactly what you put into it. You can't expect opportunities simply to knock on your door everyday.

But at Menlo, the opportunities are endless, all you have to do is ask for them. Internships, jobs, academic support, tutoring, resume building, writing assistance, lunch with faculty, funding for clubs, events in the city, parties down the road- plentiful and amazing!

For a student who wants that perfect balance of support and independence, fun and opportunity, prestigious but welcoming, diverse but unique. Menlo is the place for you!

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.
