A few words on fit.


"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.


If you are looking for a college that: 


  • Gets to know and understand each student as a uniquely talented individual
  • Identifies potential and encourages students in very intentional ways
  • Fosters growth in each student, giving them a foundation for life and career success
  • Is small enough to deliver on the promise of a personalized experience
  • Goes beyond “career services” and offers a progressive 4-year career development model, partnering with local businesses and nonprofits for professional experience
  • Promotes an inclusive culture that encourages students to experiment in new clubs and activities
  • Is nationally recognized for its academic support systems, from professional content tutors (not students) to proven comprehensive support for students with learning differences
  • Connects students to service opportunities that impact their world
  • Is in a location that offers access to New England’s natural places and some of America’s greatest cities




…Mitchell College delivers in a powerful way.
