Honestly, this College sucks big time on theAverageCriminal
Honestly, this College sucks big time on the social life aspect of it. I went here for one year and my freshman year of college was not at all what I wanted it to be like. I lived on campus and got stuck with a roommate who wouldn't even talk to me the first semester, luckily I switched out and moved in with a friend for second semester. The food is okay here, as is any other college campus, but it sucks because they literally serve the same thing all the time!! If they had more variety and a better selection then it wouldn't have been as bad as it was. The faculty here are great, I have to say that is pretty much the only thing that is good about this college. I was a criminal justice major here and what was nice about the staff was that they all had on-hands real life experience in the criminal justice field. Two of my teachers from this department were retired police officers with 20+ years in the field. But anyways, this college is heavily into sports, so if you plan on playing a sport at this college then you'll probably enjoy it a lot. I joined a club but eventually ended up quitting it because I felt like I was left out and a lot of the people seemed fake. There will never be any good parties here, just stupid boring get togethers at the sports houses where you just drink and stand around in a hot crowded little house. I really tried to make this college work for me but there was no way I could go back for a second year at this dumphole, so I transferred out. I suggest you don't even bother applying here. This school is very expensive and it is sooo not worth the amount of money you have to spend at this school.

WNEC is a money hole. The staff are not here to help, assist or better you in any way, it is actually just the opposite. As a political science major, that at spur of the moment, went to a political convention for the better half of spring break, it is beyond aggravating that no one can render any assistance in handing in an application less than 24 hours later for an LBC. This school doesn't care about their students nor their success as individuals. This is more than likely why the drop out rate is at an all time high.

The dining hall is more often closed than open. The food is sub-par, usually looks to be past expiration and always disgusting.

The area is also terribly unsafe with very very high murder and rape rates. I am not making this up check the FBI's Uniform Crime Report (UCR) if you are in question.Tours are also a fabricated lie. They give a wonderful sales pitch and recruit PAID guides to sell you this school. I fell for it and I am now too far into the trap to get out. Avoid this institution that is costing upwards of 42,000 a year that will contribute absolutely nothing to your future success.
