|I have never read such an ignorant review on a school. I would definitely disagree with you when you say that the clubs are hard to join. UMass holds countless activities fairs and organizes many on campus recreational activities. While you go out of your way to stereotype Southwest as trashy, you failed to disclose which area you live in. Perhaps the reason you feel like you don't fit in is because your clearly shy , judgmental, and unapproachable. I bet you would have had a better outlook if you tried to enjoy it, or maybe switched to a new dorm in a new area. The point of college is to meet new people, explore new things, and branch out. Also, your review is hypocritical. Don't say you cant say enough good things about your classes, and then say you didn't learn anything at all, one paragraph later. Don't complain about cops shutting down parties after you call them "disgusting". Im sorry you have had such a poor freshman experience, however this comment: "So, if you're okay with being a number and putting in A LOT of effort into finding your way, AND you're in love with PINK, too much makeup, hooking up with gross guys, or are a super nerd or hipster, UMass is for you. It's just definitely not for me " is completely inappropriate. Im a sophomore now, and I had a really rough experience myself freshman year. I had a hard time connecting with the people around me on my floor, so i decided to join a RAP, a residential, academic program. Instead of running away from my problem, like you, I decided to take control of my time here at UMass. Now I love it here. I can see now that the beauty of UMass is that there is something here for everyone. But as for you, don't complain about stereotypes when you are the person fueling them.
