| The school isn't bad, let's start with that. The classes are good, at least for my current major, and my former major they were. I made some of the best friends of my life here. Partying does kind of suck, as you're basically sitting in a room and drinking with music on and maybe four other people with you, because if you tried to have more you'd get written up. Our sports are nothing to brag about, and our sport players even less so. The football team actually has a degree of discipline and respect, as was I'm sure instilled by their coach. However, the Lacrosse team is 99% of the time, a different story.I think if you're looking for a good criminal justice undergrad program, this is the place to be, especially if you're a commuter from the nearby area, but if you want to live on campus, it's not so bad either. Boston isn't too far, and getting a car on campus if you have one isn't overly difficult. |

| I was extremely disappointed with their Fashion Design program. I took two classes my first semester: Draping & Couture, Basic Clothing Construction I|
In Draping and Couture, there was a pleasant older woman who taught the class but zipped through everything so quickly that nobody understood what she meant. One time she said, "Everyone get it?" and when everyone murmured and basically said no, her response was, "OK, Moving on..." Yes, seriously.
The Construction class was even worse. The teacher would literally do ONE demo at the beginning of class and that was it. I would go up to her frequently and ask her if I was doing a stitch right and her response was, "This stitch is on page 85 in your textbook." In other words, "You're on your own, kid. Don't bother me." Maybe I'm picky, but aren't teacher's supposed to TEACH?
Seriously, I could've (and have) learned more with youtube tutorials and a decent textbook (not the ones they suggested) than from the professors in this program. Needless to say, I switched schools immediately.

| First of all, do not expect anything great from this school. If your looking for the typical college life, look elsewhere. Most students go home on the weekend, and since I'm from out of state it feels like a ghost town. The students are dumb, potheads, alcoholics who only care about thirsty Thursday. No one goes to class on friday mornings. The food is even worse! Its either greasy or tasteless, expect to find the same food every week. The freshman dorms are quite old and nasty. The campus is so small that you will run into the same people everyday. People know everyone's business. Most of the guys are jock meatheads, don't expect to find a love interest here. It gets so boring, Boston is ATLEAST an hour commute, the shuttle to the T is terrible and freshman cant have cars on campus! In conclusion, come here if you have lowered your expectations about what college is or should be! |
