| I'll give the readers the good stuff first. I recomend academic advising with Becky Signore first off. She is amazing and helped me choose classes that are required for my major. They also have career services here to assist you in career exploration. The people in the financial aid office are very friendly and helpful. I've never had a problem reaching faculty, they all answer my emails and questions in a timely fashion. The education is challenging and the teachers here truly care about your education. They're always giving out free stuff here. Unlike other universitie, Gwynedd starts Clinicals freshman years and not junior year. It lets you decided if you want to be a nurse or not. BIG nursing school.I was excited about coming to a small university at first and now i hate it. Cliques are formed quickly and the people here don't seem too interested about making new friends. The food here is HORRIBLE, and there isn't a wide variety. It's hare to avoid certain people you don't want to see cause of the small size. You get tired of seeing the same damn people all the tmee. The schol lacks diversity and people barley come out to the events. The parties here suck. People drink in their room and get written up for it. This school is a suitcase school, and everyone leaves for the weekend. The people who stay tell me i'm not missing out. Yeah its pretty boring. Not worth it for the 30 grand. |

| If you are looking just for a education and no fun for a whole lot of money then please pick this school. Other than that it is small, and most kids tend to get in cliques. I have never met so many b***chy girls in my life. As far as the teachers go some are good some are bad. I went to this school for a semester and could not stand it. It is not worth the money AT ALL. |

| DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL, UNLESS YOU LIKE TO BE BORED! Basically, this school is filled with tight knit cliques that don't like letting anyone new into their group so unless you join a club or sports team freshman year than expect to get the cold shoulder. Most of the professors are terrible, and I mean TERRIBLE teachers, however to be fair there are a handful of amazing teachers, but unfortunately they only teach a few classes each. |
The only thing people do here is drink until they became so drunk and stupid that they break stuff or decide to go joy-riding, which if your floor has damage everyone pays for it. NO ONE is here on the weekends, unless your an athlete thats forced to be there for practice. Almost everyone is dying to go home by Friday. There are NO inturmurals regardless of what they tell you. The dances are lame. So is "fall fest" and "spring fling", both basically designed to entertain 5 yr olds.
Dont even get me started on the security gaurds and the res life staff...they're all grumpy and basically seem to hate their job. But they do love to listen in on other people's convos and are extremely nosey. If you drink on campus most likely u will get written up...and really the only thing there is to do is drink...
The caf is the worst! Worst hours ever! You can't get breakfast on the weekends until basically noon and dinner ends at 6pm. If you sit in the caf for hours and only eat one meal they will make you swipe for two meals because you were there during lunch and dinner...and the food sucks anyway...not worth the couple grand a yr!!!
The only positive experience you can get from this school is if you are an athlete, highly involved in a club with people you get along with, or just happen to make really good friends that make this hell-hole of a school worth it. Lastly if you are in siena, alex or brigid the dorm rooms are pretty nice with ur own bathrooms and air conditioning. But since everyone goes home on the weekend there goes more money out the window since your not even there the whole week to get your money's worth. Basically, just don't go to GMC. You will want to transfer out, and when you do expect none of your credits to transfer. I would've transfered out a looonnng time ago but practically no school will accept their credits.
