Major: Communications (This Major's Salary over time)
I know some students enjoy their time at Bryant, but I absolutely hate it. Basically, you either love or hate it. Bryant expanded its education from simply business to business and liberal arts. It's a university now. But this is merely a title, because the liberal arts education at Bryant is ridiculous and very terrible. It still is a small business school, regardless of the "university" at the end of its name. If you love business and want to pursue that in your life, go to Bryant. It's small, the business classes are good, faculty is distinguished, you'll do well. It's the perfect school for a certain type of student.

I'm not that kind of student. I orginally wanted to be a Communications major. I chose Bryant because it had a good Comm program. However, in this very business-focused, money-focued, career-focused school, I soon realized I did not want to study Comm, business, or anything related to it. I love art. I want to study different social sciences. I want to get involved in an active theater program. Bryant doesn't have any of this. When I tried to look at other majors, there weren't any options. It is a school for people who are very focused and do not want to explore other areas of study. Sure, they're developing new majors, but I'm in school now and can't wait for a better, more liberal arts Bryant.

Basically, if you enjoy business, a small, homogenous environment in a small town, definitely check out Bryant. It would be a good fit.

But, if you want options and want to explore different majors and explore different aspects of yourself without such a strong focus on business and high-paying careers, DO NOT go to Bryant. If you love the arts like music, art, or theater and wish to make those things part of your college experience (not to study, but to get involved in extra-curricularly), DO NOT go to Bryant. If you value a liberal arts education with a wide variety of English, history, psychology, etc classes, DO NOT go to Bryant.

And socially, I must say that I was lucky to live in a suite with a group of wonderful girls. However, many left on the weekends because the social atmosphere was dismal. Small cliques are everywhere. It feels like high school. Friendly and open people are hard to find.

It is a good school for some, absolutely terrible for others. I, personally, cannot wait to transfer.

responseYou know, I always dreamed of traveling too, but money problems always stopped me. It seems to me that only when I learned about trading, chose a broker by reading reviews here and started trading, did my financial situation improve significantly. Be sure to check this option out.
