High School cliques on steroids.Other
High School cliques on steroids. Most, but certainly not all, professors are insincere and shallow. Dorms are filthy. Walk to the corner Dunkin Donuts or pizza place in the evening (Thursday, Friday, and Saturday are the most dangerous) and you really should consider wearing a bullet proof vest. Think I'm joking? Find a warm Friday around 9:30pm and walk west on Alden Street a few blocks (5 minutes) to grab some local food. Don't believe Springfield College's false advertisements and just try this simple brief experiment. Then count the number of abandoned houses and business at that corner. Maybe a half dozen? Whose living/orbiting in those abandoned houses? Exactly! (You guessed it- very dangerous desperate unstable people.) I could write for days but you get the point. Everything I've shared is my honest experience.

Question
Public Safety is useless and not helpful.Super BrilliantPreMed and Medical
Public Safety is useless and not helpful. They do not protect students, they go after students and look for students doing wrong, not outside forces.Residence Life is useless as well. They are horrible, they do not listen to students, the dorms are bad and unclean, the RAs do not respect students and they charge so much money for a crappy room that is dirty.

Question
School did not offer a graduate position, theyEducation
School did not offer a graduate position, they gave it to student who went there as an undergrad, had un-fair advantage. I re-applied to grad assistantship it was clear that the department did not even read application. Individuals who had those grad assistantships were hired at full time positions very quickly after graduation.

Wanting to work in a Division 1 level there was not experience gained that would allow for that. There was no certification after degree was earned.
