In all honesty, I really wish I had gone somewhere else. I'm graduating this fall with an absurd amount of debt, and it was not worth the money at all.

This is what happens to your money. You get mediocre professors, the dorms are a disaster, and all the students are all completely broken-spirited.

Go into a dorm building...not one they show you on a tour, but just follow someone in, and look how out of shape it is. You literally cannot use the bathroom on the weekends. Almost every friday and saturday night, someone vomits all over the place or leaves some other mess, and it doesn't get cleaned up until monday, and then the entire building shares whatever bathroom is clean, if you're lucky there's two.

Then go into the admissions office or the Casey academic center and look how ridiculously lavish it looks and ask the president and the sports coaches about their sportscars and european river boat cruises. That's where your money goes...to the president and to disguising the college as a place where actual learning occurs.

Campus is not very diverse, which makes you feel sick after about a month. Besides the few model students they bribed in with full scholarships to help their reputation, the rest are not very bright or interested in intellectual pursuits, and rather snooty.

Also, there are a lot of stories in the news recently about colleges trying to conceal sexual assault cases and not dealing with them appropriately, and this is one of those places. There was an incident last year where a lacrosse player was accused of something and the college refused to investigate because they didn't want to create scandal and they wanted their team to win. Absolutely disgusting behavior.

Although the college it's self is nice, the Town of Chestertown is terrible. Besides having nothing to do in town, the locals are very unwelcoming to college students. Living off campus is a goal of many students because of the fun growing experience but do not expect the school, town, or police to be on your side when it comes to issues whether it be unreasonable noise complaints or cars with Washington college stickers getting ticketed for infractions that are otherwise unheard of.

I am so infuriated with this place, and would encourage anyone considering attending to take these negative reviews seriously. I remember reading them when I was younger and shrugging it off, and now I wish I didn't. It's not a matter of "its not the school for everyone" it's a matter of the school having MAJOR problems in the past five years and the administration choosing to ignore everything completely. University resource use is a huge issue that students have protested ad nauseum to no avail. The tuition is huge, yet it all goes into advertising for the school and sports scholarships. Not worth it. Being as old as it is, they're very restricted by tradition.
