attended WAC in 2008, and when I saw the “cutest
Girls” ranking I actually spit out my drink, after seeing
that I decided that I needed to voice my opinion
of this place. Unless the last 2 classes of
freshmen have changed something drastically, I wouldn't touch most of
the girls there with a 10-foot pole.
The party scene
is mediocre. After the first semester you just see
the same people over and over again at the same
places. I was involved in greek life and it
was fun, but I found a better party scene at
a commuter school in the middle of nowhere Ohio.
However, I will give WAC credit for their creativity with
such games as 180 cup. They do keep it
interesting, even if you are partying with the same people
every day. Don't think that you won't have wild
nights here, I was drinking 5-7 days a week, but
it gets old very quickly.
I felt the academics were
good, but certainly not worth the money. The best
point I have about the faculty .
was lucky enough to live in Chester, the nicest dorm
on campus. Most of my classmates did not have
the same luck and got put in absolutely horrendous dorms.
And if I'm forking over $40K a year, you
better give me some NICE dorms! But hey, the
president's Bentley is nice. I guess that's where my
I was an in-state student expecting the college
experience, what I got felt like a 5th year of
high school. The people there were either annoying “bros”
from Jersey or I knew them from high school.
The best people to hang out with are the international
students, at least they don't use “bro” every 15 seconds.
The school suffers from a very liberal east coast
mentality, and after attending a small school in Ohio I
learned that college can be VERY different.
The school also
attempted to tell me what was acceptable and unacceptable material
to have on my facebook, as if they own my
intellectual property just because I pay them big bucks to
teach me a little bit and let me drink on
their campus. Just as a note, the material in
question did not involve any illegal drinking or use of
drugs. I told them where to stick it, after
that point I was pretty much the subject of a
witch hunt because I wasn't their idea of the perfect
student. Beware, they don't appreciate people who have a
southern or midwestern conservative mentality. I was continuously viewed
as “backwards” or “something wrong with me” because I believe
in 2nd Amendment rights and drive a loud truck.
outside town is a joke, the parts that you see
are beautiful, but there is certainly a dark underbelly to
the town. The police waste their time busting people
with modified exhaust systems and chasing a gram of weed,
but choose to ignore the several crack houses in the
area. I'm not exaggerating the term crack house either,
it is easier to find cocaine in Chestertown than in
One notable difference is that the students here tend
to be more open to freshmen than other schools.
But even with that, in the first 3 weeks everyone
finds a clique and if you didn't you're out of
luck. Very single-minded people, if you're not a liberal
hippy type or a frat bro you're probably not going
to make many friends or go to many parties.
I was lucky enough to fall in with a frat
and go to parties whenever I anted, but on the
weekend other freshmen used to blow my phone up looking
for something to do because I was “in with the
frats” and could find a party.
The school isn't worth
the insane money they charge.
