Bennington's "progressive" reputation is a sham.Quite BrightArt & Design Department
Bennington's "progressive" reputation is a sham. I came here expecting a top notch education, and was sorely disappointed. The faculty are pretty good, but the course offerings are limited and the students are a bunch of pretentious, pseudo-hip, spoiled rich kids who either weren't smart enough or didn't work hard enough in high school to get into more prestigious colleges like Middlebury, Williams, Amherst, etc. The campus is beautiful, but so are others. Bennington is famous for being expensive and for having a ton of drugs, but you never hear anybody say it's that good.

Question
Bennington is a magical place.Quite BrightEnglish
Bennington is a magical place. Everyone is really passionate about their studies. The campus is beautiful. It is a casual and relaxed environment. Bennington is for a very specific type of person. You have to be really responsible. No one is going to be monitoring you to do your work. The work we are assigned is challenging because teachers expect a lot from you and encourage you to step completely outside of your comfort zone.
