Merrimack College is a beautiful, quaint suburban college campus north of Boston. The graduate class sizes are small and the professors are very knowledgeable in their field. The professors have first-hand experience working in local districts as teachers, principals, program directors, and even superintendents. The school and staff have a great working relationship with school districts in the area and are able to place student interns at various different schools. I don't live on campus, but it seems to be a lively place where students are very involved. I've been to several of the men's ice hockey games and they are fast-paced and enjoyable. All of the staff and employees that I have interacted with have been very helpful, and attending Merrimack College has been a very positive experience.

Merrimack's Education graduate program is awful. The instructors are not the problem, but with the administration. Although, they should try to hire more instructors, so that students learn from different teachers. In the year that I have been attending Merrimack, I have had three different academic advisers, all of which do not know anything about the program. The woman in charge of licensing is all over the place and it is tough to contact. Just about everyone in my program has had an issue, and students who are not fellows have a harder time graduating because the advising is so terrible. I do not know a single person in the Education graduate program who would recommend attending this school. In fact, Merrimack has gained a reputation around the public schools for being disorganized and luring students into the program with false pretenses. Stay away from this school. There are better options for the same price.

Merrimack College is a great school to attend if you wish to obtain a degree in Education. Currently, I am enrolled to obtain my Master's in Education to teach general science to Middle School students and so far, my experience in this program has been fantastic. I have yet to encounter an issue with any faculty member or any restrictions in regards to the courses I have taken. Any problems I have had, which were minor, were IT related and were resolved in a timely manner. In each course I have taken, I have definitely learned far more about becoming an educator than I ever imagined, without feeling overwhelmed with information. Although I am not enrolled in this, Merrimack College offers a fellowship program where you are able to teach and take courses simultaneously without having to pay for tuition. This is an exceptional school not just for education, but for many majors and concentrations (not to mention it is beautiful!). I would highly recommend Merrimack.

The graduate classes are at night which is very helpful and allows me to work during the day.
