100% of students gave Marlboro College 5 stars overall.
Marlboro is super great for students who are looking for awesome academics in a smaller setting. We are a small community, but I often find that because we are small we've cultivated a really supportive network for current and past students. My favorite thing about Marlboro is how closely you can work with your professors - I don't think any of my friends who went to larger state schools were able to have a three person class their first semester. Marlboro is also a writing-intensive institution - after my first year here, I've really noticed how my writing has improved. As we say at Marlboro, clear writing is clear thinking.
