A world class education at a fair cost in a beautiful intimate setting
Mar 5, 2009
It is hard to think of anything I did not like about my education experience at Endicott College. I enjoyed every moment of it, from the all-nighters doing design studio work at the cafe to the Art at the Beach events, Intercultural Club dinners, and meaningful conversations with teachers. I was a commuter, so I can't say much about the residence life, but here is my take on this private college:
23 undergraduate majors as well as 4 graduate
Location, location, location: a secluded setting in a small town on the ocean yet a short train ride (25 mins) from the hussle and bussle of Boston
A picturesque setting on the ocean with many new and updated facilities and buildings as well as beautiful historic mansions
The teachers are amazing, intelligent, and considerate people
Average class size is 17.7
One of the few colleges in MA with a CIDA accredited Interior Design program
Three required internships for all majors, great hands-on experience (two 120 hours, and one semester internship
A variety of student activities and clubs, my favorite was the Intercultural Club - I met so many interesting diverse people there
Tuition a lot more affordable than other Boston area colleges and universities
Great study abroad programs
Under 2,000 full-time students
91% of graduates employeed within 12 months, 90% in jobs related to their major
A friendly, approacheable president!
Ocassionaly brutal winter weather
Not within walking distance of anything (shuttles take you to stores)
If you are considering Endicott for an education for yourself or your children, message me with any questions!

Endicott College was founded in 1939 by Dr. Eleanor Tupper and her husband, Dr. George O. Bierkoe, who shared the vision of creating a college to educate women for greater independence and an enhanced position in the workplace. Of course, this was a radical idea in those days near the end of the Depression and just before America's entry into World War II. Despite its unconventional nature, the dream took hold and flourished during the war and the years beyond.
Endicott has a student population of 2000 undergraduate men and women from throughout the United States and around the world, enrolled at our campuses in Beverly, Massachusetts; Madrid, Spain; and Mexico City, Mexico. The Beverly, Massachusetts campus is approximately 20 miles north of Boston, the "college capital of the world".
