This university is a nightmare.Quite BrightNursing
This university is a nightmare. I am SO happy I transferred! Where to start?
Food: the dining hall is nasty! I lucked out being on a scholarship and having flex money to spend so I didn't starve. Dining hall food has a reputation for making people sick, I remember one of my PROFESSORS, on the first day of school, telling us in a caring manner how bad the food is and that when you have an upset stomach from it, it's there's that.

Financial aid: a joke. I can't tell you how many times this dept messed up my billing. I was on scholarship and my room/board was paid for. Financial aid didn't care or understand that. They charged me for 2 rooms and didn't fix this for a month. That really screwed over my much needed refund check getting to me in a timely manner. People in this dept are extremely rude and don't care. Screw them.

Residential education: ultimately the reason I transferred out of this hell hole. Long story short, being on scholarship through the school, they could randomly move you. 2 weeks into the fall semester I got a notification that I was being moved to another highlands dorm with random people...bullshit. The first 2 roommates were ok, quiet like me, respectful. 2 weeks later at 1am a random girl starts moving into our dorm because she had been kicked out of 2 dorms prior for arguing. Wonderful. This roommate was a disaster. She was obnoxious, always had it hotter than hell in the room, and she was so disrespectful. She cornered me 2 DAYS after moving into the room because she needed it to be 78 degrees in the room and I reasonably asked that it be slightly colder than that. To make a long story short I didn't feel safe and I went to the RA 3 times a week between February-the last week of the semester because I didn't feel safe. The RA basically told me "let's just leave her be, she has an anger issue" ...are you fucking kidding me???? Let's jump ahead a little...I was going to stay my sophomore year...I was asking to live off campus since I had one hell of an experience living on campus, I didn't think it would be a problem. WRONG. there's a TWO YEAR on campus housing contract and they wouldn't let me break that...despite the campus nurse's input, my long log of shit that went down during those 3 months, and so on. Seriously, I'm not making this up.

Weather: it's in the snow belt, it sucks. Sidewalks don't get cared for. I'll end it there. I wouldn't send my dog to Edinboro. Pick a better school. This place is a hell hole.
