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.

Newbury College is a unique school with beautiful scenery. The teachers and faculty are wonderful and are dedicated to helping the students especially when the students begin to become overwhelmed with the college life. Newbury has many resources and connections that help many students, rather its getting a job or more scholarships for school. The food at Newbury was good but lately it has been declining in taste and appearance.
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.
