“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.

First Year Experience helps ease the transition into college  life, getting you connected to what is happening in and out of the classroom. Using a process of self-discovery, our team of advisors, mentors, professors and others help you discover your strengths, interests, and how you learn best, then help you build your toolbox for success.

Small class sizes mean professors get to know you well. They want to understand how you learn, and 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.

The unique thing about Mitchell is how close you are to faculty and staff...They actually, truly care about what's going on in your life and how they can help support you.

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.
