Every student is allowed a car on campus, just don't park it in the wrong spot or you'll be caught and fined-quick!

Anna Maria College is D3 athletics. It is very easy to partake in the sport teams. The women's field hockey team won their conference championship and the men's basketball team made it to the championship final but unfortunately lost. (2012-2013 year) Along with those teams, men's lacrosse is also very good and competitive. On the negative side some of the other teams have a poor record such as the women's volleyball, men's soccer, and women's soccer teams. It is a wide vary of strong and weak team records, but overall fun experiences and a good way to get to know people.

At Anna Maria College there is often cold weather and snow. Classroom buildings are all in 5-10 minute walking distances so it's never an issue to get to class if you live on campus.Classes are cancelled here and there in the winter, be prepared to dress warm. Typical New England weather.

There is a school van that does Saturday trips to the mall, Wednesday trips to Walmart, and if organized can do trips elsewhere. I personally have not looked into the transportation options at my school.

I haven't explored much of the off-campus dining options near Anna Maria College. Worcester is 10 minuets down the road with very typical dining options; Subway, McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts, pizza joints and some restaurants.

I am majoring in Art Therapy at Anna Maria College and I love it. Guiding Children's Behavior was my first course combining therapy and child development. It showed me that working with people in a helpful way, was something I wanted to pursuit as a career. Along with basic college courses, I had my art courses focused on painting, drawing and ceramics. Working with and helping people using art is a combination that fits me perfectly.There are not a lot of colleges that offer Art Therapy as a major so I'm very grateful I found it at Anna Maria College.

I am quite a fan of the academics at Anna Maria College because there is a variety of courses, a workload that is manageable as long as kept up with, the work is challenging without being impossible and the professors are easy to reach and are eager to help students understand the material.

Health & Safety:
Security and safety was never an issue in the school. It was a relatively small sized campus and small dorms. RAs were constantly on alert and on call, making their halls feel safe. The only thing that ever made anyone uneasy were the urban legends and paranormal activity on campus.

AMC was and is still considered one of the best colleges for Criminal Justice. My tutition money was well spent on good quality professors. Practicing attorneys and FBI agents as professors.

Something unique that set it apart from other schools would be the study abroad program. Not only its a learning trip but you feel like you are with your family and its a life time experience that you will carry on for the est of your life.

It snows a lot. It is also very windy and cold. Bring lots of layers!

There is a lot of alcohol use and poor alcohol control. Students are also known to smoke marijuana in the bathrooms of the suites.

There is not a lot of options for off campus housing. The School also cuts scholarship money if you are not living on campus.

We have a new multi-purpose sports field which is very nice.

I received a scholarship based on my academic achievements in high school. There are not many opportunities for middle class students to receive aid without academic achievement.

There's a shuttle, but it only runs on certain days and to certain places. You need a car on campus for most activities.

It's mostly a suitcase school. There's not much to do, and the dorms are not great. The walls are very thin, and you can often hear your neighbors doing many things.

Not all that great but they try and give any one who needs one something

All the teachers are well trained and love what they do but most of them have other jobs so they get distracted a lot.

When I auditioned to become a music therapy major, I was extremely nervous because of the high standards and vigorous music program at AMC. Because of my strong work ethic and calm appearance (though I was very nervous), I was accepted.

Anna Maria is located on a hill in Paxton, MA. That being said, we recieve lots of snow, ice, low temperatures, and freezing wind gusts. Though we have a very cold climate, the campus is small enough that we are able to walk to all of our classes from our dorms. It is just very cold while we are walking there.

There are many diverse students at AMC. Our office of diversity and multicultural affairs reaches out to students to grow in respect for people of diverse cultures and backgrounds.

The scool is not very strict. It is your choice to attend class and do your work.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
