Classes here are ok--nothing spectacular, though. The profs are generally kind of dull, except for a few. The core here is so frustrating, and the professors who teach these classes generally don't care much (especially if you're a freshman). After freshman/first year (to be PC), life gets sooo much more boring at the college. There are only so many times you can take sitting around watching movies or going to "parties". The social life is kind of juvenile--mostly gross beer at the quads or apartments. With regards to the administration, they make A LOT of mistakes! The dorms are horribly dilapidated and it's hard to switch buildings or roomates. Too many freshmen being admitted has caused a giant hassle all over campus. If you're from a very small town, don't want to be challenged much, and enjoy living in a white, lower middle class bubble, come to Etown.

This is a typical college typical of our terrible system that is applied to most colleges of our time. CLASSES: I found the class size to be very managable. Not too big but not too small. Professors in my department grade very hard but usually give a slight curve. Engineering is still a very hard major. By the second year almost half of the class is out of the major. The professors are nice people but they choose favorites, if you are getting good grades they like you but if not they treat you like crap. POLICIES: This college is very poorly run from the administrative department. Parking is a mess. Don't be surprised when you get your first ticket. Everyone gets one. Campus security and RA's are a bunch of assholes on weekends. SOCIAL LIFE: Some people at this college are very friendly and others are annoying as hell. The parties here are so boring most of the time and its so small of a campus you are always watching for security. All though it is fun to sometimes just chill with people and have a few beers. TOWN: You dont need a car to go into town. It helps but unless youre a really lazy person you could walk into town in about 10 minutes. Not much there though. OVERALL: I have had a bad experience here but that doesn't mean you will. A lot of kids here are usually pretty well off but they are still mostly nice kids. There is definately a lot of stupid shit that they don't tell you about on any tour or orientation.
