“Springfield College, to me, is a hidden gem; it is literally one of the best colleges in the United States and in the world. No doubt, there are big colleges with ginormous endowment and what not. But what many lack is educating students in a wholesome manner (spirit, mind, and body). I truly love Springfield College, and you will, too.”

Prashant Timalsina, Class of 2023

“I came to Springfield College to experience the close-knit community and spirit, mind, and body philosophy. The small classes and personal approach to teaching gave me the opportunity to develop warm and meaningful connections with my professors and advisors who have helped me immensely throughout my college career. The beautiful and energized campus has added to the vibrant culture that Springfield College actively creates making it a ‘home away from home.’ Springfield College is a great place for any international student to begin their academic journey in the U.S.”

“Although I was far away from home, I felt like I had a family on campus as I was able to get to know people and have people around me who care about me. I really like the fact that Springfield College is small and everybody practically knows everybody, so there is always someone who recognizes you, says hi and how are you. That makes a big difference in the environment of this school.”
