“If you choose to come here, you are going to find out the person you really are, because people around here genuinely care about you and your well-being.”
Alex Rodriguez ’16, Criminal Justice Major
Your experience at Mitchell College is as individual as you are: your strengths, your potential, your best self. Studies show the lifelong impact of making strong connections in college, and Mitchell lines up ways to connect across campus. Your advisor gets to know you before your first day of college and stays with you for four years. Small class sizes mean professors get to know you well. They are invested in your success and in you as a person to give you the right level of support and challenge to enhance your personal strengths.
"Fit” is the modern buzzword of the college search process. And frankly, rightly so. As you consider your college experience, we encourage you to look for a place that feels right. It’s also a good idea to make a list of the qualities and characteristics that make a college and you a winning combination.
