First ofBrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
First of all I am retired from teaching after forty years. Campbell College is the reason I was able to become a highly respected and awarded instructor. The comments about the campus lifestyle, sadly even apply to one who attended there all those years ago. Campbell was and remains a suitcase college. We always found a party to go to during the week and the Village Inn in Dunn was as much fun on a Wednesday night as you could have. When Friday rolled around we got out of Dodge and went home to family and friends. It was impossible to find a date on Campus because all the best looking girls had boyfriends at home. Luckily for me I had a girl at home.I was hired right out of college and taught elementary school. I just was not ready for that assignment and took education courses from U VA and Mary Washington to finish my course work. Campbell taught me how to study, think critically and apply myself. I'll can't thank the school enough for that. I don't know how the school can overcome such negative comments when they are still relevant to this day. Kids are going to find a way to party and drink. Forty years ago kids were having sex in dorms and backseats. I thought the addition of football would get the kids to stay on campus but it appears that has failed. President Creech and Chairman Ben Thompson, if you are this, move this college in a new direction. Let the kids have some breathing space. If they are coming from conservative families then have some level of trust. Thank you Campbell College (University). Good luck kids on your decision.

I was trained as a teacher and wentBrightHistory/Histories (art history/etc.)
I was trained as a teacher and went directly to grad school after my BA. I thought I was doing something positive but that turned out to be completely wrong. After I received my Masters I spent 7 years and between 900 and 1000 resumes, letters of inquiry, and applications were sent out (remember these were the pre-computer years) and all that brought me exactly

one interview. I am not exaggerating.I didn't know until years later why all these employers/schools treated me like a leper. It was because I was TOO educated for their liking. They didn't want to pay me more when they could hire a BA/BS for less money. I was finally educated on this subject by some teachers whom I had become friends with. So I ask anyone reading this, "How long would it have taken one of the so called experts at Muskingum College to take me aside and tell me NOT to get a Masters until after I was hired?". I don't think it would have taken them long and I also don't believe they didn't know the consequences of what I was going to do. So my advice is simple. DO NOT go to Muskingum College. They do not pay attention to details and they do not care about the students. They just want your money and then you are on your own.

I transfered to curry college after 2 yearsQuite BrightCommunications
I transfered to curry college after 2 years in a community college. The college is a suit case school and honestly there would be about 10 people left on campus come fridy night. hard to get to boston without going through the rough part. Education wise I got about 50% of what I paid for. The teachers were irresponsible, rude and egotistical. teaching at curry is nothing to have an ego about. there were 1200 students back then. half of the freshman class left after the first year and were replaced by some real winners. i found out my last semester that the school was in a bad financial state and operating semester to semester. When i got out i lost out to jobs to people who werent done at the community college. i re taught myself radio broadcasting and managed to have a 7 year career, 2 were full time with benefits. My degree is in the closet and i even emailed the school telling them i regret backing in to curry and would no longer like to be considered a member of the alumni. i know now i would have done better avoiding the school. i also have a low opinion of college in general because of the false promise of a bright future with a degree. i didn't want it to be this way.
