I made the right choice. Merrimack has a small close knit community where i got to know and network with many local and international students. Great faculty, Small Departments, limited students per class are just a few reasons why this is a great college. College Challo and their agency partners in India were very supportive in helping me learn about the college and settle in the US.
Merrimack College is a very safe place & has a vast campus. My experience has been good so far. Working in teams and the exposure i am getting to different teaching & learning styles at this college is something i think students in India are missing out on. I recommend Merrimack to all students looking to pursue their degree in the US.
It came to me as a surprise that Merrimack had a such good reputation in the Corp world. Has a reputation to produce the best and most employable graduates. The selection process i went through during the application was not easy. I’m glad to be a part of this college. The pre-departure orientation by Sheldon and team in Hyderabad was helpful and informative.
The winter gear from India just doesn’t work here :). Choosing a college is never easy and i feel lucky pursuing my degree here at Merrimack. Merrimack College is an awesome place. Nice infrastructure, highly supportive management and staff, it even has a nice place for Musicians like me that like to jam with others.
The Pre-Departure Orientation helped me and the other students get comfortable and prepare well before we traveled to the US.
