It's all politics.Quite BrightChemistry
It's all politics. That's all this road show college is: politics. They put on a great show for perspective students and tourists rolling in on their 45-foot diesel coaches, receiving donations from brainwashed, religious elderly people who are duped by the show. Once you get on the inside, it's quite different from the road show you saw when you applied. Somehow it's considered reputable, but in reality, it's a joke. The administration is very corrupt, one of the former administrators bought his doctorate from a diploma mill and still got a full salary after he was found out. Some students are treated better than others based on connections. You have a curfew you have to follow, as if you're in the seventh grade. Girls aren't allowed in men's dorms, and vice versca, except for twice a year during "open houses", and even then RAs hover around and watch all the students like hawks. You're forced to attend "convocations", which are usually just religious, conservative gasbags loving the sound of their own voice. The air conditioning in the dorms is terrible (while the administrators live in luxurious, climate-controlled homes on campus). The school can afford better air conditioning with its 300 million dollar endowment, but I guess caring for the students would be too "Christ-like".

Question
C of O is not for everyone, butEnglish
C of O is not for everyone, but if you have a good work ethic and appreciate the gift of a debt free education it is an outstanding springboard to success. I give C of O's english program four stars and absolutely believe the classes related to my field of study were top notch. More than anything, my degree at C of O taught me to think critically which is REALLY what creates earning power in the workforce. Because I graduated debt free I was not burdened by loan payments and actually started my own business less than 6 months after graduation, a business that is successful and growing now 5 years later. Success at C of O does require some surrender of personal liberties for your time there, but was 100% worth it to me.
