I regret coming here.Bright
I regret coming here. I came here because I wanted to play D3 athletics and it was the worse decision of my life. The school just is not "student friendly". The campus security is constantly hassling students and the business office ridiculously nickel and dimes you to death. The meal and housing plans suck because it leaves little options especially when you compare the costs of the different plans that they do offer. No off campus housing except overpriced College owned glorified dorms that they call residence halls and frat houses. House keeping is just plain awful. Maintenance requests were ignored or untimely. Upkeep and cleaning didn't seem to exist. Of course, the business office always had a "community charge" for damages at the end of the term. The area and town immediately around the school is sketchy at best. Directly behind the "frat and sorority" houses are government housing projects. In short the school misleads its academic success, a dump and a terrible value for the money. Buyer beware!

Everyone here is awful.
Everyone here is awful. The students are still stuck in high school and act like it and the professors are arrogant jerks who think your life revolves 100% around their class. Unless you want to get drunk every night there is nothing to do and no where to go. Overall I've been miserable and I think I might finally give in and leave.

Nothing exciting about my college experience so far.BrightUndecided
Nothing exciting about my college experience so far. Not much here fun or stimulating. Professors are arrogant and typical academia types that are more interested in getting some babbling research published than actually teaching and preparing students for real life. Area around campus is a dump and the city of Washington has so many sketchy parts that it is hard to find anything to do in town. The college's administrative marketing depart deserves kudos because the image the project to prospective students and their parents simple does not match the reality. Deep very deep into their published post graduate figures and you will see. I am transferring because although it isn't the worst place on earth it just has not been an enjoyable experience and the value proposition simply is not here. Buyer beware.
