Pine Manor College Reviews

I attended Pine Manor when we first moved to Boston.

I was not impressed at all.

In the dining hall the girls, especially the jock girls, were very unfriendly & cliquey.

The psychology professor was compassionate when she found out I was a single mom she tried to organize a support group around that.

Frankly, I had better things to do, like studying.

We got to volunteer tutoring kids at the Brookline public schools which was good. I love tutoring.

Unfortunately, I got paired with a very shy, uncommunicative boy who seemed largely disinterested in learning.

Sorry to say this, but due to the lack of intellectual people I nicknamed Pine Manor, Pine Moron.
There were really no people to have a thought provoking conversations with on campus.
There are much better schools in Boston. Like BC.
The professors were decent though. Very smart professors.

Pine Manor's student diversity and professor involvement is a refreshing change. The professors sincerely care about their students. The only downside is the communication between faculty (not including professors) and students (E.G financial aid services, housing services, etc).
Most schools have this issue so I'm basically desensitized to drug and alcohol use. It is so common to smell weed wherever you go that it's basically become part of the campus culture. Alcohol (from what I've seen) is stashed in some students' (including underage) fridges or in some other hiding place. I personally have been pressured to drink and eventually gave in many times because I didn't want to be bothered by the people I was socializing with. The alcohol/drug policy is the same as the law - no one under 21 is allowed to drink and drugs are prohibited. But at this point, campus security really doesn't care. They'll only give you a warning if they receive a call from a student. That's it.
