WHAT I LIKED

My favorite aspect of Saint Michael's College is the amazing community that surrounds you when you join the school. All the faculty, staff, and professors are understanding, friendly, genuine, and compassionate. The students who attend the college are also very welcoming and supportive where you will always have a friend to comfort you when you are having a bad day. The small class sizes allow for affective personal attention and close connections with your professors and peers. The campus and surrounding mountains and lake are absolutely gorgeous in every season allowing for a close connection to be created between the student and nature.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Saint Michael's College is a little farther from home than I would have liked, so settling in sometimes fluctuated.
