Nichols College is a great business college. Professors are required to have office hours to help students, and are helpful and eager to help students any time they can. The school prepares you my having a Professional Development Seminar class to master resume and cover letter writing, interviewing, and budgeting. The classes at Nichols have a lot of presentations and group projects. It is ridiculous to have to take two humanities courses and a social science course that are irrelevant to business and students majors. The food on campus is a hit or miss. The housing (dorm) situation is horrible. Some dorms are aweful and shouldn't be lived in. The social programming board and various clubs try to put on weekly events.

Well, I thought that I had wanted to go to a small school because I went to a small high school so i figured that I'd want something similar to that but I was pretty dissatisfied. I had decided over my winter break that Nichols College was not for me. I had applied to Salem State University for the Fall 2016 semester as a transfer student and I had gotten accepted. There are more undergraduates there and I will enjoy myself a lot more there because there are more people and diversity among how everyone acts.

If you have the grades and effort, getting a job or internship through Nichols is easy. The alumni network is huge providing many opportunities for success. It is up to the student though, Nichols must see that you are taking initiative in your future and will not do all the work for you, just provide you with the necessary steps and connections.
