Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

There is one thing you can be certain about: Marlboro College is not for everyone. It takes a certain person to come here and challenge themselves to an independently-created education. To give a student freedom and endless opportunity is often a scary concept. Additionally, to create a project that reflects four years of rigorous learning is quite the undertaking. But once embarked upon, a journey through Marlboro has infinite rewards.

Consistently growing in its respectable reputation, this school will forever strive to keep the learning process focused on and around the students. Walter Hendricks wanted to make education a conversation, and that's what Marlboro College continues to do. The College has yet to change its approach to learning. As a student at Marlboro, you can expect to be tossed around, treated like an adult, and taken to new heights. Not everything is possible at Marlboro, but once a student graduates, he or she has the power to imagine anything and act upon his or her dreams.

Marlboro Student Reviews

Campus Housing: Dorms at Marlboro are a mixed bag. Out of the Way, for example, is really beautiful and spacious (and reserved for upperclassmen). Hendricks is also new and pretty. The cottages offer a measure of independence, while still being on campus (although there are issues with maintenance). Other dorms such as the Randoms, Howland, and Happy Valley are getting a bit decrepit looking, although almost all of the rooms are larger than at the average college.

Athletics: Broomball. That's what really matters. Soccer and Skiing are fun, but only broomball draws the full attention of the student body.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I would say that the guys as a whole are more attractive. Nobody shaves, everybody wears greys/dark brown but the style is cool and fresh most of the time. DOn't come here expecting a good dating scene.

2 College Junior

Diversity: Everyone is white and middle/upper class. Recently things have gotten better--more international students in the past few classes, but not as good as it could be.

Campus Dining: The dining hall does the best with what they can. There is one set of staff serving 230 people three times a day. So undercooked rice is to be expected, but the staff are super friendly and helpful if you need anything. Like if you want to bake banana nut bread, and have no bananas these guys are more than willing to help out.
