In all fairness, all I know about isQuite BrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
In all fairness, all I know about is the evening classes, so it's possible that the quality of the education and the interest of the students is different for during the day classes. But every class I've ever taken has been dragged down to the lowest level by students who simply aren't engaged, but there's no combating that because the professors aren't that engaged either. The only reason I go here is because is the difference in a 20 minute drive and a 45 minute drive, which since I can only take classes in the evening, makes a HUGE difference. Because it's so small its difficult to even take the required courses, because they end up cancelling them due to low enrollment.

What's nice about this school is it's small.Quite BrightNatural Resources
What's nice about this school is it's small. Easily navigable campus, decent area. There are no interesting clubs, and it takes awhile to blend in if you are not from Northwestern CT. Classes are way to easy, and the classes stay the same each semester. The faculty here doesn't want you to go to 4 year schools. Students are constantly compared to 4 year students,and how stupid WE are. None of the students want to be here, but we just go. Don't stay here long. I plan on transferring as soon as I get some more credits. The faculty is generally nice and helpful, and it was easy to make friends once I fell into the loop. There is ZERO place to eat on campus, and the library is lame for what it's worth. Parking is less than perfect also. One restaurant is all there is on campus, but there are snack machines. The only reason I chose to come here, was because I got in for free. And, the excess financial aid is sent to me via a check! Woohoo! That's the only plus, I put the money towards transfer applications! ;)
