All Around the Same – Majority of the school is indian or asian american. There are very few African Americans and the other majority of the population would consist of white people. People are considered to be very unsocial due to the amount of work given by professors, however, there are many kinds of events to help the students to better socialize with each other to bring people into each other's lives. Students all come from different economic and social backgrounds that our school contains a very diverse group of students. The diversity comes from the background of the students and not their race/ethnicity. Just like economic status' the religion of each and every student is different as well. To my understanding there are actually clubs for every kind of religion known, and if there aren't any available, the school are pretty lenient on allowing for certain clubs to begin. The school has a very big female populations and low male population, but that doesn't stop students from being friends with one another!

MCPHS University is located in the heart of Boston. It is located right on Longwood Ave. surrounded by hospitals. MCPHS is one of the 5 colleges of the fenway. It is only a 10 minute walk to Fenway Park! 10 minute walk to Emmanuals and Northeastern. There is a lot going on in this area,

Il Mundo is the school's favorite pizza and pasta place and it is located 5 minutes from the school.

Every Tuesdays and Thursdays, there is a time during 12:30-1:30, called Activities Period. During this time, clubs and events are always happening. You do not need to bring a lunch during these days because food is always provided! When the school has no activites going on, other schools around the Colleges of the Fenway does. I know that Wentworth Institute of Technology has events every weekend and anyone are welcome to join.

MCPHS is very diverse and small, but it has a lot to offer. The professors are awesome; they are always willing to help answer questions or whatnot during their office hours.

You'll Get One. One thing Boston have a surplus of is apartment. However with so many school around the same area, you have to compete with not just the thousands at your school who are searching for a place. The school does try to help you out by having information session and realtors flock the streets to handout flyers for students. However, most of the apartment around here are either too expensive or too run-downed. There's the really nice neighborhood with all the convenience in the world, but be expected to pay at least a grand per room! Cheap apartments either require commuting or require you to travel in group so you don't get mugged in scary neighborhood. So start your search early to find the best possible!
