Review Merrimack College
When you decide on a major, you will have certain course that are required to be completed. Advisers and professors are very accommodating and helpful to make sure you are able to get into the classes you need. Class size will depend on your major, whether it is an honors course (those are typically smaller), and whether it is a gen-ed requirement. The average class size I have experienced is around 20, but some freshman science/health lectures can be as large as 50. Even with larger classes, professor are very good about keeping office hours and being available when you need them!
There are so many opportunities to get involved (take as many as you can!) and the people are incredible. Classes are appropriate for your study, professors are engaged, passionate, and helpful when needed, and the size allows you to walk around campus always seeing people you know, but also bunches of students you still have yet to meet. I cannot imagine myself anywhere else and am grateful I made the decision to attend MC!
Lots of students attend home games! The most popular are men's hockey, men's lacrosse, men's and women's soccer, field hockey, and baseball. There are always students there cheering them on, and the athletes are as involved in other aspects of campus life as any other student! We really are all one big community.
