    They are many things that I liked about Montserrat since the first day I step there, one of them is how everyone respects people personalities, they gender and color. Another thing that I liked were my classes that they gave me, the classes are really interesting and practical. Something that surprised me in my orientation was how the college is not just one, it is divided in many buildings! I’m enjoying a lot and hopefully I will like more things about it.

    I am soon to be a junior at Montserrat. So far my experience has been quite good. Foundation year is pretty heavy on projects and working as a team with your classmates but towards the end of the year it becomes natural. I think this helps a lot for when you progress with each year as the work is easier to manage despite taking challenging courses.
    The school is small which means you get to know people quite well and fairly quickly. After two years I seem to know everyone, even people I have never had an interaction with. It creates that sense of a tight-knit community which other schools don't seem to have. Most people are in-the-know about what's going on around campus.
    So far my favorite thing is the classes. I have learned and developed my skills so much since I started here. This is probably because of each professor teaching their own techniques and advising us uniquely with each class, so you take away pieces of their skills and apply them to your own.
    The convenience to downtown stores and restaurants, and the comfortable living lifestyle of the apartment-style dormitories is an attractive feature. The class size seems to be very appropriate for the learning experience. The school size is attractive for my son, who is not attracted to schools with large campus size.
