My review

The Good:

The people there are so open minded. Bard College at Simon's Rock is a unique college in that it does not discriminate against age. I am only fourteen years old but they didn't mind and were eager to hear that I was interested. The community there is so diverse and you are bound to find lifelong friends. An open and interesting community is this college's best feature.

The Bad:

The town its located in has a population below 10,000 and is really small. When I mean small, I mean SMALL. People who feel as if they need to be in the center of activity won't feel exactly at ease in town - the college campus life is a different story though. Its more attune to nature with a lot of natural swimming pools but there aren't any nightclubs or that which marks places like NYC.

Would I do it again?

Yes, Of course!!! If I could, I would repeat over a hundred times. The experience I had was amazing. Simon's Rock kept me busy but let me have fun. The classes were interesting and even the homework. There were always cool activities like not to long ago we had a harpsichord recital and their Mayfest is a crazy fiesta!!
