Don't make the sameJournalism
Don't make the same mistake I did and blow 4 years on partying, with teachers letting you sneak by. I will NEVER get out of debt from paying for this joke of a school.

Question
I came to Bonas hoping to experience whatQuite BrightAthletics/Training
I came to Bonas hoping to experience what they all said it was...Unfortunately, I was tricked! The whole picture that they paint for you on tours and open houses and emails and everything else they try to pull you in with is a huge lie. The buildings are disgusting and falling apart (Plassman, Dev, Francis), the main academic building literally had to shut down its third floor because the school is trying to cut corners and save money on heat and electric.Heat in the dorms is a huge joke, you have a choice to be in a sauna or an ice chest, no in between. The administration is a joke, Hopkins hall is full of people just there to collect their paychecks and go home. A lot of staff has either been cut or has quit this year.. hello money issues. Tuition is 42k a year for what?? No one knows. The university is going to fold in a few years, the only people holding it together are the party animals that currently occupy it. The food is disgusting, the morals are lacking, the parking is a joke, the only people that truly love it here are people that could not make it anywhere else. I will say that the faculty are some of the nicest people you will meet, especially in the Phys Ed/Sports Studies department.

Question
This university is a poor mans school forQuite BrightBiology
This university is a poor mans school for kids who couldn't get in anywhere else. That sounds bad but its absolutely true. There is nothing special about this place it is really just a bunch of mediocre kids pretending to be having fun, and if they are having fun, then god help them. The buildings are pretty gross excluding swan and the quick arts center, the campus is so small, the food is gross, its freezing cold, the town is retched, and the people in the school are honestly so weird. The parties are a bunch of sweaty drunk people crowded into a gross house, and although that can be fun a few times it is really just sad once you get used to it. The athletics are mediocre and there is NO budget for sports teams besides basketball. Basketball is the only thing this university holds onto. Its expensive as shit for no reason although i personally don't pay much a lot of people do. Im transferring to a much much better school so i don't have too much to worry about but i just want to warn other kids like me who may get fooled before deciding to come here.
