SofO was well regarded in regionally back in the 80's. I don't know that it is so much now.|
To be honest, SofO was a pretty light weight school. I think my son's catholic high school is more rigorous academically in many subjects.
My first year in the real world, I learned as much as I did in college.
My kids have gone exclusively to private catholic schools, but the religious fanaticism that emanates from CofO really gives me the creeps.HOWEVER, I did come out debt free, and my parents couldn't have afforded another college.

| Though I had several great teachers in my department, my overall experience with the college was negative. Some of the instances that stand out in my mind are the time that my (heterosexual) roommate got a call from the Dean of Students saying someone had accused her of kissing another girl outside our dorm. My roommate was very distressed by the accusations, which underscored the college's extremist views on homosexuality. There was the sense that your every move was being scrutinized. For example, during freshman orientation week, the group I was in performed in the "talent show" and was later reprimanded by the college administration for choosing songs that were too "suggestive." The song in question was by a certain Sir Mixalot. A few years after graduation, I learned from one my teachers that one professor was let go for being critical of Fox News. The student creative arts publication was permanently banned by the administration for publishing a creative work containing a common curse word. Additionally, two of the professors from my department were let go after they were accused of being Marxists (I knew both professors, and they were not at all Marxist.) |
