Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • I am a past student here

    I enjoyed being in a new city and meeting lots of new and exciting people but I did not enjoy not having fun if that makes any sense. My three years were consumed by studying and arguing with my roommates. I stepped out of my comfort zone going into Boston and it was definitely a culture shock but that was all part of the experience. I loved getting to know the city of Boston and to learn all the cool places to eat and shop. But studying ALL the time was not what I was expecting. I literally spent every min of my free time doing homework or catching up on reading even on the weekends and vacation time.

    Because MCPHS is so much smaller than a lot of other colleges or universities, you know most of your classmates, your professors know you, and your voice is heard in the classroom, clubs, and other school organizations. It's convenient, considering that all your classes and resources are all in one building. There are always club activities going on, so you'll have something to do. MCPHS is part of the Colleges of Fenway, so you can cross-register with Simmons, Wheelock, Emmanuel, Wentworth, or MassArt and take a class not offered by MCPHS, such as a language class. You can also use the resources and attend events hosted by the other Colleges of the Fenway. MCPHS is located right by the green line, which makes traveling to various parts of Boston very convenient. MCPHS is also walking distance from Fenway Park - you should go see a game! There's not much diversity with respect to fields of study - In that aspect, it can become somewhat boring with everyone virtually studying the same thing you're studying.
