There is very little(NOTHING) to do in the town and surrounding area of Galesburg, IL. The tours of the school are great and they reel you in but once there, there is no social life unless you want to do drugs which is quite prevalent on the campus - even in the dorms and right out in the quads for the staff and housing directors to see. Once you pass your freshman year - there is no additional assistance on staff for students, they are trying to push continually for new enrollment - definitely not worth the money - keep searching for a liberal arts school that has a surrounding community for students and better support on campus.
I've really enjoyed my time here so far, I've been challenged to think outside of my comfort zones and through that I've learned a lot about myself and the areas I work in. The students and faculty are all really friendly and supportive of independent work and research.The only thing that I think needs work is communication. Biggest example being that we have great Theatre, Dance and Music departments but we lack the collaboration that would enable those departments to work together to put on a musical.
