Message from the President


Dear Students, Families and Friends:

I would like to welcome each of you to Mount Ida College. We are an innovative, century-old institution that is in the forefront of career-based education. Our purpose is to provide each student with the resources to learn and the tools to achieve their lifetime goals after graduation and beyond.

We are a small, closely knit community of students and educators, where faculty members are supportive and available to each of our students. We take pride in our diversity, as we do in the wide range of curricular, extracurricular and athletic programs that create an exciting college environment, a lifetime of friends and colleagues and a path to professional success.

Please join me on our beautiful 72-acre campus only eight miles from Boston, one of America’s great centers of culture and the arts and the home to many colleges and universities. Experience our classes, meet our coaches at home games on our new, lighted turf field, and soon to be renovated student center and state-of-the-art fitness center. Engage in conversation with our faculty in the arts, humanities, business, design, dental and veterinary technology—to name just a few.

Once you do, I believe you will join generations of students who have recognized the qualities of this unique college—the best place to begin a lifetime of learning and success.

With best wishes,

Barry Brown
