This is my first time attending a school in another state and I'd say Menlo College definitely made me feel comfortable being away from home. One thing I like about Menlo is that they have new activities/events to attend or do every week, it is a family type of atmosphere where everyone comes together to enjoy each others company and experience the fun together. The academics is top notch as well, focusing mainly on business majors, I feel Menlo has great professors that focus on the class overall and also individuals who need extra help, they are very helpful and just want us to succeed.
Overall it's just great! The dorms are a pretty good proximity away from/close to classroom halls. Since day one you are introduced to your RAs and are introduced to all the rules and regulations. Everyone is very friendly and the RAs are always planning fun activities for people on your floor. If there ever is a problem RAs are there to help, but usually there aren't any issues. Also, our restrooms are kept clean because the janitors come nearly every day! The cost is pretty fair compared to an apartment nearby considering that we are in Atherton.
