My experience with Newbury College is amazing. First off, I love the small campus because I can stay connected easily with staff, and friends. Another part of my experience that I enjoy is the small classroom size. For me, it helps me be more focused in class, gain a great relationship with my professors, interact with my peers, and be inspired. I enjoy the Newbury College experience because the people there make students learn more about themselves, and makes them feel as if, they can accomplish anything. The professors there are very energizing which makes students motivated to learn in the classroom. Overall the time spent at Newbury College is amazing, and I am glad this is where my college experience started.

I loved the diversity of the college. There were people from all over the world. The curriculum moved at a great pace and due to such small class sizes, students were able to get one on one assistance when in need. With that being said, despite all of the challenges, every single student had equal opportunities for success.
I would however like for the price of the school to be decreased. Most students attend for one semester but must leave due to some type of financial predicament.
Though I will be transferring, I have had an overall decent experience at Newbury College. Through it's diverse students and staff, I have had the opportunity to learn in interesting and challenging courses. The school is incredibly small, which though can be a good thing for some students, I found that it was an overall negative trait for me. The administration and staff are all very friendly and welcoming, and the majority of the students are the same. For improvements, the school could definitely work on it's dining hall hours, as well as student benefits, such as on campus parking for residents, and more food options.
