Mystic Program, Mitchell College

Introducing a unique way for first-year students to build social, coping and academic skills to enhance learning while transitioning into college.

;

Recognized as a national leader for its innovative academic and residential support programs for almost 40 years, Mitchell is proud to introduce a new way for first-year students to build social, coping and academic skills to enhance learning while transitioning into college.

Easing the transition into college.

Moving to a new residence or city, leaving old friendships, routines and support…and establishing new ones…can be overwhelming. For some first-year students, navigating these challenges on your own, or within the context of a traditional first-year program, isn’t quite enough to ensure success. The Mystic Program is designed to bridge that gap.

may optionally apply for academic support through the Bentsen Learning Center

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.
