I'll try to be fair in discussing myQuite BrightPolitical Science
I'll try to be fair in discussing my experience here as I am a student considering transferring from Bucknell junior year.

Reasons not to transfer:

- I really love the faculty here especially the professors in the History and Foreign Languages department. Every professor that I've had has been 100% dedicated to making sure students get the experience our tuition is worth.

- Facilities are great. The campus is well-kept and the environment for studying is great. The library is wonderful with so many resources. There are a lot of places to do work.

- Plenty of things to do apart from partying and such contrary to what some others might say. While I don't mind partying once in a while, I don't like doing it every weekend, which leads into my reasons to transfer.

Reason(s) to transfer:

I've never witnessed so much lack of general respect for one's self and others. By this I mean most people I've met here, but there are of course, exceptions to this. Most people I have met do like just going out every weekend and choose to do this over other activities offered--then for some reason, coming to the conclusion, that there isn't anything else better than partying on campus. False. I also do not like the guys I've met here who are not at all well-behaved and ridiculously (beyond humoring) vulgar and inconsiderate. Maybe that's just me but I find a lot of students' behavior degenerative and wasteful. And if they don't know it, they don't care. If you want a worldly student body, don't come here.Otherwise, there are some socially acceptable people here, which unfortunately seem to make up the minority because it's hard to meet them in dodging all of the annoying and obnoxious people.

I was recruited here for a sport. I couldn't be happier. Faculty is very helpful and easy to talk to. Campus is beautiful. Athletic facilities are as good as any small school in the country.The only thing I'd point out is that Lewisburg is not the big city. If you're looking for downtown NYC then it won't be a good fit.
