DO NOT GO TO EMMANUEL COLLEGE. Really, don't even waste your time applying, even if they try to get you with that free application bs. The first week of school here was easily the worst week of my life. First of all, I'm in a forced triple with the WORST view you could ever imagine, and every single morning my roommates and I wake up at 7:30 am to the spanish trash workers emptying the dumpsters and fighting in spanish about GOD KNOWS WHAT. Second of all, you might as well save yourself some time and buy (in bulk) packages of diapers because they treat you like little babies here. They have you up at 8 am the first week of school here doing the most ridiculous "ice-breakers" again and all these other stupid childish activities. Guest Privileges? Don't expect to have anyone visit you at this Jesus Camp anytime soon. You have to do numerous workshops and once again, stupid childish activities to get LIMITED guest privileges for FIRST SEMESTER. And when you finally get overnight privileges have fun sleeping in the tiny uncomfortable twin hospital beds that make you more sore than anything in America. Security Guards? Well, have fun living on this "dry campus". Your bags get checked going in AND out of the dorms whenever they damn well please to check. Although they can't physically touch your bags, they make you take everything out so they can see everything in it. And don't bother trying to put your booze in a water bottle because they ask to smell those. Yup, no joke. And it's literally impossible to ever sneak anyone in here so don't even waste your time. Social Life? There isn't one here. If you're normal like me you care about your grades, but you care about your social life, and you love to party and have a good time. The weekends are your favorite thing in the world. Well, sorry to say this but there are literally no normal people here. There are five types of people here at EC. 1. Stuck up white snobs who get everything from mommy and daddy. 2. Lax Bros. Enough said. 3. The Druggies 4. The nice nerdy kids 5. Bitchy upperclassmen who think they're the best. If you don't know anyone outside of Emmanuel College good luck finding a party. The doors lock whenever they're shut so you can't have a friend just come into your room, you have to either leave your door open or get up and let them in. But anyways, it's just extremely cliquey and nobody is that friendly here. People make a few good close friends but after that they don't care about meeting new people. The Food. Yes, the food is good, but you get extremely sick of it extremely fast. There are only 3 places for you to get food, the Cafe, the Atrium and the Muddy River. The Muddy River is like a little Panera in the Admin Building that has good paninis/wraps/subs, but there are only so many options that you quickly get sick of. The cafe switches it up a lot but once again, you get sick of it. The Atrium uses up your Flex Dollars which you only get 95 or something like that a semester, and you go through those wicked fast so when you realize in the middle of October you've only been there for a month and a half and you have no more Flex Dollars, unless you want to dish out cash everything you want a snack you're stuck with the Muddy River or Cafe. Lastly, the majority of the workers are rude. To get into any dorm AT ANY TIME you have to show your ID to the front desk worker every single time which gets unbelievably annoying. If you leave your ID in your room and accidentally get locked out 3 times you have to pay a fee. If you leave Cafe dishes around the dorm the whole dorm gets charged. If your ID decides to stop working for no reason and you have to go through the annoying process of getting a hard copy of a key, if you lose that key you have to pay $75. If you're taking Chemistry at all you have to pay over $50 for some online homework stuff, and you have to pay another $50 for some stupid little clicker thing you use in class to answer powerpoint questions with that counts for either %5 or less of your overall grade. Pretty much you get here and you're slammed with all these other expenses you really weren't expecting. Basically this is like a jesus-loving summer camp/high school. I went to a very small high school and this college is still way too small for me. I feel like I'm going crazy here and I can't wait to transfer next year to a bigger college with an actual social life. I just can't wait to be at a college that actually feels like college. Do NOT waste your money on this school.
