| I came to Peace College with an optimistic attitude. However, I found most of the few students who attend to be cliquey...not particularly open to making friends. As one person noted before, you won't have a social life if you are the least bit shy. The social scene is my main problem. I went to a community college before this and didn't live on campus and I had more friends than I do now...and the semester is just about over. I have made one or two friends but we don't do anything together. The basic premise of a social life here is "off-campus". The college strongly discourages social gatherings that aren't academic, so to have any friends here, you have to have enough money to go out every weekend. If you don't have a lot of money, you won't find much company here. I am transfering to a big university next year. Also, I would rather a faculty that doesn't care about me and shows it than a faculty that pretends to care about me...The University, as it now is, is undergoing major changes and no one knows how that is going to turn out. But if freedom and openmindedness are a couple of your values, choose a different school. On the upside, if you have good social support already, the academics are fairly easy to get through granted you study. |

-Unappetizing cafeteria food
-Horrible price. Do not live on campus if you can help it.
-narrow minded classmatesOnly come to Peace if you aim to challenge yourself. Your classmates will not motivate you, but sometimes your professors will. If not for my fantastic department I would regret attending Peace.

| Peace College is an AMAZING college! The falculty is very friendly and willing to help you with anything. Just about all the professors are approchable and you can really receive that one on one interaction in the class room. The acedemics are challenging and I speak for the Biology and Graphic Design departments because those are my two majors. Lots of Bio students at Peace have gone on to medical school etc. and Peace is great for placing you in a career or job once you graduate. I am offered so much oportunity here at Peace from leadership roles to study abroad experiences. Raleigh is a great city both during the day and at night. Of course its not New York or Washington D.C. but you will never be completely bored. On top of Raleigh, Peace College is a very involved campus and has lots of fun things to do everyday of the week including weekends. The food and residence life is great compared to all of the surrounding schools such as N.C. State and Shaw. The school is expensive and the tuition was raised but Peace has wonderful finacial aid packages and you really get what you pay for. The women here are friendly and have limited drama which is great for me since I find it immature. As long as you keep and open mind and make yourself friendly these women will take you in and you will form lasting friendships like I have. Come to Peace College I can promise you will not regret your decision!! |
