IF you like being stupid and acting juvenile,AveragePsychology
IF you like being stupid and acting juvenile, you belong at Westminster! The student body are mostly spoiled kids that don't give a damn about anything but "having a good time". Most of the buildings are old and falling apart, and the dorms are disgusting. Student life is managed by idiots that don't care about anything but playing intramural sports and fantasy football. There is a lot of partying and alcohol and drug use, but Campus Patrol does their best to keep things under control. They certainly don't get paid enough to do what they do and deal with all the d-bags on campus that think this place is their own personal playground. The psychology faculty are all over paid researchers/publishing writers that don't care about student performance in their classes. Most of them are arrogant and won't cut you a break. I had a death in the family that I needed to miss class for to go to the funeral, and one professor made me bring a copy of the funeral program to prove it was not a hoax! What a load of crap! The attendance policy of all classes is way too strict, and they don't care if you have a life outside of school where things happen that make you have trouble keeping up academically. The administration is also mostly a bunch of red tape loving, two-faced, uncaring morons. The registrar is a complete tool and an uncaring jerk. Anyway, if you have the choice and ability to go somewhere else, DON'T GO TO WESTMINSTER!

Question
I only attend this college because I workAveragePsychology
I only attend this college because I work here and they give tuition remission to employees. I feel bad for students (parents) paying full price for the low quality education they receive. Some professors are good, but most aren't. I'd say in my department only 3 or 4 good professors exist. The educational environment is very close-minded, with only extremely liberal views being promoted. The material covered in classes is basically useless in real life, unless you plan on doing research and writing papers for a living after graduation. The administration is also arrogant and lack common sense for the most part. The registrar is an ass, making your academic life hell. If you are a non-traditional student good luck! Definitely not worth it! If you can go somewhere else, do it!

Question
I would not recommendBrightNursing
I would not recommend coming here. The professors are fine mostly but a lot of the adjuncts suck. Res life will make your life miserable and the RAs and campus patrol are overall not nice. Night life is rapidly declining.
