Major: Music Education (This Major's Salary over time)
At C of O absolutely everything is about how the school looks to the public, not the student's well-being. Just look at the buildings, and I should know about them I worked in custodial. Which building has the most money put into it? The Keeter Center, where all the guests stay, and coming in second the administration's housing. Which buildings are the worst, the dorms and coming in second the main educational buildings. The rules are there so they can be boasted about. And if you don't follow them, you face expulsion. The administration doesn't care about students personal growth, all they care about is how the school looks.

That being said, the professors, for the most part, tend to care an awful lot about their student's personal growth. The high point of my time at the school was definitely the music faculty. Very approachable and very interested in, not only the academic well being of their students, but their emotional and spiritual well-being as well.

It's important to note that C of O is not a school that prepares well for graduate school. That was my mistake. C of O mostly prepares for careers right out of college, and they do a good job of that from what I can tell. But if you're looking into graduate school or if it might ever be an option for you, look elsewhere for your bachelor's.

C of O is also not a school for the liberal, minority, homosexual, or non-Christian. These students will absolutely not fit in at C of O, but, then again, I'm a generally moderate, white, straight Christian and I even felt out of place. My point here is this, if you are a parent, or have a parent, who feels the need to "fix" your "broken" child by saying you'll pay for their college but only if they go to a "Christian" school like C of O. All I have to say is: DON'T! It's rather counter productive if you ask me.

Honestly, I feel like I've wasted my time at C of O trying to live up to someone else's standards. I think my time would have been spent better at a community college where for two years I could save money (live at home, have scholarships to pay for school, and work for actual money), get an associate's, think about my major for bachelor's, and think about what college I'll even go to. in the end, it doesn't matter if you go to a community college before you go to a 4 year school. And I'd say it's a MUCH better option than this prison of a school.
