I love attending Bay Path! Almost all of my classes have under 20 students, (one even had 6), and my professors genuinely care about each student and the course material. They all have such interesting personal experiences that they share and are always willing to help students network! Although there are limited sections available for each course, it's understandable since the student body is so small. My advisor always makes sure I am comfortable with my schedule and that I am on track to receive my degree on time. Being such a small community lets students make personal relationships with almost all of the professors and other students on campus!

The Sullivan Career and Life Planning Center is so helpful when working on an internship, job interview, resume, business cards, or any professional task. They can also help with networking in the community, as they host networking events and panels for each major! I went to the Business/Accounting Networking Event and that's how I met a professional at a large company and eventually got an internship there! There are always alumni events going on and I've been able to meet a lot of alumni through scholarship events and volunteer work connected with Bay Path.

I wish that I could say that it is the best but Bay Path has a long way to go! I am currently in the occupational therapy program and apart from having such an intense curriculum, I also am dealt with the financial burdens of paying for school without the assistance from any of my family members. Bay Path gave me $1000 in additional funds to help me with the costs, however,being that they are a private university and have a lot of financial assistance, I wish they would have given me more money. I am grateful for what I did recentlly receive and am going to look more intently into resources that can help more than my school has.
