MSMC: NICE COLLEGE

This college was a small campus and class size had a few different programs I was interested in such as nursing and psychology. The campus is set in a pretty location overlooking the Hudson River. The campus just felt comfortable and like a fun place to spend my 4 years.


Course Curriculum - 

The curriculum for my particular program was good, they were useful classes and helped me to expand my knowledge in my field. However, there wasn't much other variation when it came to minors, for example, I was interested in a criminal justice minor which was not available to me at the time.
