This college has become a joke and seemsNot so brightEconomics
This college has become a joke and seems to be even worse now. Believe it or not, there are students who take ultimate Frisbee as a class and basket weaving like classes. I'm not even going to go on about the types of students who inhabit this place, you know what to expect. There's very little academic rigor and much though control and little creativity. It's the ultimate, rich kid slacker school and it won't get you anywhere in the real world

Question
Any student that does not accept the narrowQuite BrightEducation
Any student that does not accept the narrow minded one rule on this campus is attacked by both professors and students. The academics is less than a joke, my high school teachers were all 100% better than my current professors. The one issue not being addressed is the pressure to engage in homosexual behaviors. The females are very aggressive. This is not a safe place. But let me say this, when confronted by any strong personality not included on campus the staff and students become cowards and run. Do not come here it is a sewer.

Question
This school is awful.Quite BrightAnthropology
This school is awful. I left after 1 year and I still have nightmares about my time there. The administration is a complete joke, and the professors can do whatever they want without being held accountable.A word of advice to students considering this school: don't ignore the retention rate. I did. I said, "Oh it's fine, those people just weren't smart/good enough!" The retention rate is that low for a reason. I'm now $25,000 in debt and I can't even use the credits from Hampshire at my new school. BEWARE.
