Nichols College Reviews
I absolutely love Nichols College! Though it is "in the middle of nowhere," it is still very fun and easily accessible. Their are a bunch of major cities (Boston, Providence, Worcester) within an hour drive. The school does a great job of keeping students entertained and happy on campus. The dorms are really nice, and everyone on campus is so helpful. All administrative and financial offices are responsive and open to any and all questions. The professors are down to earth and really interested in you as a student. I could not imagine going anywhere else. Go Bison!
Nichols prides its self with creating the leaders of tomorrow however the alumni that you get to know when attending Nichols end up not going far. I know more alumni that I can count on my hands that make just above minimum wage with a four year college career. Granted that does have to do with the over educated population right now. But Nichols also says how they will help you and I know multiple people who have and did not receive this "help" they pride themselves in. Nichols is very small so the campus feels like a high school. You have to make the best of your situation there. The professors on the liberal arts side are amazing and they really care but the bottom line is the classes are wayyyyy to easy. I gave my sister who is a freshman in high school one of my assignments and she laughed because she was doing the same thing in HIGH SCHOOL. That is why I think basically everyone graduates there, if they don't transfer because they hate it.
My experience at Nichols has shaped me for the real world in many ways. By becoming very involved in both academics and the community, I have made numerous connections. The staff and faculty at the college pushes you to be the best you can be. They offer any type of resource to make sure that you're successful upon completion. If there was one thing I would change, it would be adding a multicultural office to campus. Currently, the number of minority is rising and there is no place for us to come together and advocate for ourselves.
