Considering Curry College? Were you swayed by the purpleApr 16 2015Accounting
Considering Curry College? Were you swayed by the purple and white flowers? The cute trolleys and all of the nice orientation leaders who seemed to really love it here? Don't be fooled because it's seriously the biggest joke I've ever seen in my entire life. This school is 3 million dollars in debt right now and all they care about is finding different ways to eat up your money.

I was pretty convinced too, I thought that I really wanted to spend the next 4 years of my life here. Now I live in Fairfield County, CT. I wasn't worried about not having a car on campus during my freshman year because they had told us that there would be a daily shuttle system that would "bring us into boston and local shopping areas" - that was another massive lie. The shuttles go to Braintree and Dedham only 4 days out of the week and you can count on them to be an hour and a half late every single time they are scheduled to arrive. They only leave the school at 5 and 7 pm and don't pick you up at your location for another 2 hours and 45 minutes. But if you miss the shuttle or the shuttle decides not to come, that sucks for you because you're shit out of luck and have to take a $65 cab back to campus.

Public Safety is 100% against people having cars on campus and they are very vocal about it. They are well known for giving parking citations that accuse students of breaking rules they didn't actually break. Also, forget about having visitors because they will get a $200 citation for not having a pass. My father drove 3 and a half hours to come visit me and since there is no visitor lot and you cannot obtain a visitor pass, he parked at my building for 20 minutes and ended up with a $200 citation. The school officers are a complete joke. They sit at the booth in front of the school and let anyone in at any hour of the night - so what's the point of even having a guard booth if you don't stop anyone from coming in? There was a bombing at a house down the street, and they still let strangers in that didn't have ID credentials.

It is insanely inconvenient to even obtain basic things that you need. If you have to get groceries, you can only go for 20 minutes at 3:30 pm on a Wednesday - but then you have to carry then for 15 minutes and bring them back to your dorm. The "Stop and Shop" van can only fit 4 people so if you aren't one of the first people to get there, forget about it. If you need to go to a doctors office, that sucks. Public Safety won't do anything for you, you'll have to take a $70 cab to your doctors office. They'll only rush you to the emergency room if you're on your death bed. One of my friends broke his leg on the ice outside and their response was "our officers are currently busy".

Also, don't let them fool you when they tell you there are tons of food choices. They only serve breakfast for 2 hours a day, lunch for 2 hours a day and dinner for 2 hours a day. If you don't visit the ONE cafeteria during those time increments, you can only choose from a sandwich, burger or pizza. This school has lawsuits upon lawsuits on them due to the amount of food poisoning that the students get from this place. If you have classes all day and don't get out until 7 pm, you are SOL. After 7 they stop serving food but then again at 9 pm they open a "late night" cafeteria, where you have to pay to eat the food - it doesn't come out of your meal plan. Don't let them convince you that there are other cafeterias because there are not. There are basic food stands around campus that offer small things, which you still have to pay for out of pocket or with "colonel cash".

The residence halls are a gigantic mess too, even though this is a massive commuter school, half of the students still live on campus. The buildings are in pieces. Three of the buildings this spring flooded and the ceilings were caving in, so they had to be evacuated and forced quintuplet rooms had to be made.

Crime, drug use and alcohol abuse is HUGE here. There is a student here who has been caught stealing money, possessions and other valuables three times, but still attends this school and hasn't even been reprimanded for his actions. He has been caught setting the fire alarm off on purpose so he can remain in the building and steal others valuables from their rooms.

I could write 20 more paragraphs about how despicable this school is - but I think I'm going to stop now before my blood pressure goes through the room. I cannot wait to transfer this semester and get out of this hell hole.

Please , please, PLEASE save your time and money and stay far away from this school. I'm not just an angsty teen pissed off about being here, but this place is despicable and shouldn't even be standing here as an institution. The fact that they charge over $50,000 grand a year is even more ridiculous. You would be much happier at a state school and even pay a lower tuition.

CC sucks
