Question
This school, as everyone else has said, hasAverageOther
This school, as everyone else has said, has amazing teachers. Unfortunately the buildings are horrifying. Not a single one, save the Library and virtually unused arts building are in acceptable condition. I've not only been locked out of, but even locked inside of a class. I don't think you'll hear of that at many similar universities. The dorm rooms are TINY and gross. The fire systems regularly malfunction, causing you to have to trek out in the snow at any given time of night. The science building is in terrible, terrible shape. They have a severe lack of modern instruments, honestly my high school was nearly as well equipped as Georgetown College was. The food is very poor as well. It is by far and away the worst food I've been forced to eat on any college campus, though the staff are generally nice. Also, Georgetown would probably be a nice place to raise a family, but it's definitely not a college-friendly town. After 9 o'clock your options are Steak n Shake, Taco Bell or McDonalds. If this school ran into a bunch of money and could vastly improve its facilities it would be a great place to learn. Unfortunately, the most recent round of innovation in the school seems to have been in the 1950s.

Question
The administration treats students unfairly, students have nQuite BrightFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
The administration treats students unfairly, students have no rights, and our student government is just a dummy program with no real power.

The food is god-awful too. Really really bad food. Not only is the food bad, its grossly overpriced as well. I am paying about $8 for a meal i wouldnt even pay $3 for.The teachers and academics are great, but it is not enough to make up for how poorly students are treated.
