I am going to be honest, I haveAverage
I am going to be honest, I have my fair share of positive and negative views on this school. However for me, the negatives very much outweigh the positives, which is the reason why I am leaving this school.

Positives - The faculty is helpful for the most part. I had no problem with any of my professors. If i needed any help from them, I would e-mail them and they would e-mail me back and I would meet them during their office hours and they were always there and I liked this, I was treated as a person not a number, they even remembered my name. The campus is also very nice and the grounds are well kept.

Negatives - Where to begin... The academic buildings are not very up to date with the exception of projectors in the classrooms. The classrooms and the bathrooms are pretty run down, and some of the buildings would often smell strange. The dorms are also nothing to go crazy over. I lived in Deegan East, the bathrooms only got cleaned when the cleaning staff felt like cleaning. The common rooms were always filthy because the other students (another negative which I will get into shortly) don't care about anything but themselves. The food here is alright, but again it's nothing to go crazy over, the cafeteria had its days where there would be a few good things worth eating but for the most part everything was either cold or stale, get used toeating a lot of wraps and salads because that's all that's gonna be worth eating every day. And now it's time to go into detail about the worst thing this school has to offer, the students. All of the kids here come from rich families and are stuck up arrogant brats who only like to get shit faced and bully other kids because they think their better than everyone. And if you do go here and think to yourself "wow, I'm making a lot of friends, everyone must really like me." DO NOT THINK THAT WAY! Odds are they're talking shit about you as you are thinking that because all the kids here are fake SOB's who only care about themselves. There are a lot of fake friendships at this school, and if you don't kiss ass, conform to every trend they do, and don't get shit faced pretty much every night of the week because you actually care about your school work, and don't like rap or dubstep bullshit music like me, then you will not fit in. You will be left out of stuff and most likely bullied like I was even though I was one of the nicest, most down to earth people at that hell hole of a college. Everyone there is fake and it's such a small school that there's so much drama, it's like high school round 2, I know a lot of people say that about their school, but I am being 100% serious, it is.

If you are a good, hardworking, down to earth person who puts their priorities and other people in front of them self once in a while, then don't go here, you will be excluded from everything and won't enjoy yourself.

P.S. I did do my fair share of drinking and partying with the few people I did hang out with and get along with, so here's some advice for the party kids. Drinking in your dorm is fun until the RA's catch you (99% chance you will if you're loud enough which isn't loud at all.) There are no good parties at this school, and on the rare occasion that there is one, it will get broken up pretty quickly. And the 'cops' at this school are dicks, a bunch of jerk offs who have nothing better to do with their lives to bust college kids for nothing and make their life hell.So yeah, don't go to school here, it sucks.
