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.
Review Newbury College
Newbury stays true to its motto. They make it matter. Located in Brookline, MA, just 15 minutes outside of Boston, I am able to have the small hands on college experience I want, without having to live right in the city. On the weekends I am able to leave my satellite dorm in historic Coolidge Corner, and head into Boston by T to get to Fenway, the museums, or TD Garden. The professors on average have 15 plus years experience in their respective fields, guaranteeing that I am learning the most up to date information in my area of study.
I did not like this school very much. It had an okay campus life but the party scene wasn't very diverse. It cost more than it was wroth. The food wasn't good and no diversity in the athletics department. The only great thing about this school was the professors!
