know that this says that I'm still there, but the
reality is that I had to transfer out after 3
semesters. This place was a fucking prison, on the
planet bullshit, in the galaxy of “This Sucks Camel Dicks”
(appropriate, really, given the mascot).
I originally went there for
Pharmacy, and I liked the setting. It was a
really beautiful campus, nicely condensed into a small area, and
easily accessible. Dorms were a bit cramped, but not
bad compared to some of the others I've seen.
Being from very out of state (Ct), I didn't have
the luxury of a car, friends, or the ability to
go home every weekend, as 90% of the people there
did. As I'm not a social creature, I at
first saw nothing wrong with the complete lack of things
to do there. I was content to sit in
my room and play videogames, surf the (patrolled and restricted)
internet and other stuff. But after a while, it
sucked. EVERYTHING was closed on sundays, and what didn't
closed operated at ridiculously short hours at random times.
Even Chick-Fil-A, one of the only redeeming factors of the
place, was closed.
The people there were indeed, very welcoming,
for the most part. I cannot say that I
once met an unfriendly person there, If anything, some seemed
too friendly; almost like a 'Stepford Wives' kinda thing.
religion there was frequently preached, with the weekly CUW religious
propaganda class, and several classes being affected by religion.
There was seriously a Bio/Anatomy professor there who seriously refused
to teach the class about Evolution, on the basis that
it went against Christianity. Also, I really don't see
what the mandatory religion classes had to do with any
major outside of the divinity school; it as a waste
of credit hours and time, especially when one didn't gain
a single thing from the course. WTF.
nice, the campus was constantly undergoing construction, the dorms were
old and musty, the wi-fi was often rendered useless thanks
to the presence of concrete, cinder blocks and brick, there's
barely any tv channels, and the internet is RESTRICTED. YEAH. I seriously got removed from the internet for
an hour because I accidentally OPENED (not used; OPENED [by
accident]) uTorrent. Also, couldn't post/look at images on 4chan,
or any “naughty” things. Sucked mad bawls.
place has the appearance of a pretty cool, little school
in a nice area, but really, it's a prison if
you don't have a car/friends. There's nothing to do
there or anywhere near there. Researchers living in antarctica
probably have better access to goods and services than the
unfortunate residents of Buies Creek. Avoid, avoid, AVOID.
