If you are an international student, be ready

If you are an international student, be ready to feel cheated. The financial information you get before you reach here is only half of it. When you reach here, they add all these costs that they did not inform you about prior to your arrival. I t is a money minded university and I am currently considering a transfer.

Coming from abroad, I expected an open-minded place. instead it was an intolerant bubble where everyone is expected to be super-liberal and not challenge perceived wisdom. For instance, in one class, the prof kept confusing ethnicity with race and put down students who tried to distinguish between the two, because, for instance, that would upset the issue of what is a Latino and can Latinos be 'white.' Somehow, fun a sin, so anyone who tries to enjoy themselves on campus is considered a 'party girl.' Lots of cliques, though of course unspoken...as there's a myth of female solidarity.

Coming to Mount Holyoke is one of the

Feb 07 2014Biology
Coming to Mount Holyoke is one of the worst regrets of my life. It's LITERALLY in the middle of nowhere! There is nothing exciting happening here!!! Fellow students are so much dumber than my high school fellow classmates. You have no choice but to study constantly because that's really all there is to do, and that makes people unnecessarily competitive. The only valuable thing that's come out of this experience for me are really great close circle of friends. Otherwise, I would be evil to let anyone ever go through what I'm experiencing here. I hate my every waking and sleeping moment here.
