I am coming into my sophomore year atAverageComputer Science
I am coming into my sophomore year at Alma college and above everything that I dislike about this school one thing pushed me over the edge: the campus dining. I could complain about all of the obvious things wrong with this school like its ugly campus, horrible surrounding town, tiny student base, poor social life, and poor staff that don't fully understand how to use the internet or keep students aware, but the thing that has tipped the iceburg is the dining and its terrible staff. It doesn't seem like too big of a deal at first; the food is okay (most of the time). But once you have completed your freshman year the staff starts to give a lot less of a shit about you. They are rude, old, and incompetant. I have been here three days and they have yet to let me use my meal plan because they say it does not start till classes do. This wouldn't be all that big of a deal had I been notified, but I never recieved an email or any notice about this. anyways I'm getting sick of ranting but if you think you even remotely want an exciting town or a large class DO NOT COME HERE. also the housing sucks and administration are dicks. I don't want to completely hate on the school I've met some of my best friends here and theres some professors here that are extremely cool, but in my opinion they don't outway the bad here.

This school is only out to get yourQuite BrightMusic - Performance
This school is only out to get your money. The money you pay to go here goes to a terrible football team among other failing things. The facilities are not in good shape and most of the things they will tell you in your visits and tours are lies to get you to go there. They treat you like children and boss you around as such.

The 'advisers' provided at this school do notBrightBiology
The 'advisers' provided at this school do not really care about you. You had better know what courses you need to take to qualify for your major, or minor.

The staff in the offices I would describe as mean and uncaring. The cafeteria food causes food poisoning - to many students and is not particularly healthy.The amount of effort I had to put into my classes to obtain a measly 3.5 gpa - was insane. And they are lowering their standards for who they accept into the school.
