I feel that the dorm life is horrible,Quite BrightCriminal
I feel that the dorm life is horrible, especially if a student lives in Shafer, Scranton, or Towers. In Shafer hall, students are drinking in their rooms every night until 4 a.m, screaming, and pounding on the floors every 2 seconds. It is such a problem, that is near IMPOSSIBLE to get any studying or homework done. Not only that, but the dorm itself is falling apart. There are holes in the walls everywhere, the ceilings are cracked and have holes, and it always smells of garbage in the hallways. I feel that a lot of the teachers are unqualified because they cannot teach without following the book almost word for word. Most of the students are stuck up, and don't understand what the concept of consideration for other people is. I find myself bored almost all of the time, and generally go home daily to get out of the monotonous routines of this campus. I am transferring to another school.

I feel cheated! I came to Edinboro onQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
I feel cheated! I came to Edinboro on a full scholarship expecting good things, I was severely disappointed. The classes are challenging....if you are MENTALLY HANDICAPPED, the professors are with few exceptions arrogant and unprofessional, and the student body is for the most part HIDEOUSLY UGLY. This university makes an active effort to screw everyone out of every dime possible. The Greeks are clannish and the football and wrestling team are ACTIVILY AGRESSIVE TOWARD EVERYONE. Perhaps worst of all, I came to Edinboro with the expectation that it was a decent state school where you could get a good education and have a good time. LIES I am writing this at midnight on a SATURDAY AND IT IS THE LAST DAY OF MARTI GRAS. Also the faculty is lowering academic standards even further I hate this place with a passion so intense it verges on being HOLY. Finally the local paper recently (less than a month ago) did a review and only 44% of Edinboro students graduate within 4 years. No matter what you are looking for it is not here. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, BURN ALL EVIDENCE THAT YOU WERE EVER INTERSTED IN THIS PLACE AND THAN FLEE FROM HERE LIKE THE DAMN ISRALIETES FLED THE PHARAOH.

Art & Design Department
The facilities arent very well equiped and they teach animation programs that are out of date and not widely used.
