I always wanted to like my school, IQuite BrightEnglish
I always wanted to like my school, I really did, but I just couldn't. Schoolwork was like child's play, no clubs, no on campus activities, no parties. Most people spend the evenings drinking in their rooms alone. Don't trust everyone you meet. Everyone leaves on the weekends. No one seems to put in an effort, academically or in extra curriculars. Freshmen had to stay in a hotel because there wasn't enough housing on campus. Disabilities officer quit and they didn't find a new one til second semester. So much for being accommodated. Overall, I spent my last weeks there flying home whenever I could. Transferred at the end of the year and loving my new school

Okay I won't lie, I only went onBrightEducation
Okay I won't lie, I only went on the campus tour. I just wanted to say that from what little I saw, it looked great. The dorms are nice (bigger than most) with a bathroom you only have to share with your roomies & one other room (not like some disgusting all-floor bathrooms). You share a floor with both genders but you don't room with them. The furniture was clean and when I went they were replacing the mattrasses (sp?), which is good. Their cafateria was really cute & clean & had good looking food (it was a little small though, & they aren't a 24 hour service :/) & a cute cafe. Worth 6 bucks for an all you can eat! Some places, like the upperclassmen dorms, were old, beautiful, vintagey buildings. Other places were new and sharp. The view everywhere is incredible! They have upgraded on sports so they are more spirted now (& penguiens are cute mascots!). They have a lot of scholorships too. They seem to offer a lot of resources. They don't force you to attend chapel or anything (not all cultish like some religiously affiliated schools) but they do have a really nice chapel & even some nuns LOL. so that's all I remember! Hope this helps!
