Mount Ida definitely makes you fee like everyone can be a part of the school no matter your race, grade, or major. Most professors put in a lot of effort to make sure you understand the material and are happy to have 1 on 1 time with you to help you if you are falling behind on something. It is a great school!

I love everything about the school. But if I could make a few minor changes, then I would. For starters, I would want there to be more events that commuter students can attend; so that we do not feel left out. I would also want some type of lockers to be able to put my books in, while I wait for my next classes. As a commuter student, this would be helpful so that I do not have to carry my heavy backpack all around campus. I have a bad shoulder and having lockers would be a huge help. Other than these two things, everything else about Mount Ida is fine.
If you are a student-athlete looking to play football for this program I recommend looking elsewhere solely for the fact of one particular coach by the name of coach chapman. His recruiting tactics are misleading and dishonest. He does not care about any of the kids he coaches, on or off the field. His only concern is to make a name for himself. I speak from experience as a parent who fell prey to his deception.
