This school accepts EVERYONE. All they are out for is your $45,000. The faculty/administration are the most self-absorbed, racist, and condescending group of people I've ever met.
Nightlife: There is nothing to do in Paxton, MA. You will have to drive to Worcester, which seems close, but will use up a fair amount of gas. If you don't have a car, make friends who do, otherwise you will be trapped on campus. Also, the campus is a ghost town on the weekends since everyone goes home.
Security: Paxton police department are the public safety on campus. So if you are drunk and they catch you, you won't just be written up, you will be ARRESTED and sent to JAIL. If they catch you smoking weed, you will be ARRESTED and kicked off campus. I can't stress this enough. If you walk into your res hall and you smell like weed? You can be KICKED OUT PERMANENTLY of your residence halls for smelling like weed. It happened to five friends of mine.
Res life/campus policies: The new suites are not up to par with the $1 million they spent to build it. The a/c units do not work. The walls are uneven and easily chipped, which you will be charged for. Also it is a cell reception dead zone. Madonna Hall is mainly freshman, and is alright now that there is more housing available. Be prepared to pay for damages brought on by ANYONE who enters the building. If they don't catch who did it, the whole hall pays.
Also, don't expect to have fair rulings in disciplinary cases. If you aren't white, be prepared to have to appeal and kiss ass. They market themselves as very anti-racist, but the administration acts in the exact way they say is wrong. One person may get in trouble for hitting someone, but another person will not get in trouble at all.
Coursework: The coursework is easy. I had more in high school. If you don't plan on going to classes though, don't come here. Attendance is VERY important.
Students: The freshman class this year was a great group of kids, the upperclassmen weren't as awesome though. I feel that anyone who was alright had made the smart decision of leaving already.
Food: The food is absolutely disgusting. They hired a new food provider this year, but the food didn't improve at all. As disgusting as it is, be prepared to be shitting the entire year. It happens to everyone. Oh, and the food you taste at Orientation is not what you will be eating the entire year. We got excited when there were orientation days because we knew the food would be better that day.I withdrew after one year and will NEVER be returning to this school. About half of our freshman class left too. I wouldn't recommend this school to my worst enemy you can get a much better education for half the price anywhere else. Don't waste your time here.
