In the field, it is hard to see how college has either help or hurt me because it helped me by changing my view of what hard work really was but hurt my confidence. This school has many positives and negatives. The Campus is absolutely beautiful and even the surrounding areas if you take the time to look around and find them. The people there can be very fun to be around and everyone seems to have something of value to bring to the table. The is what I would believe to be a normal amount of racism and prejudice for a college, which does not make it okay. I am just saying its not out of the norm to be harassed by public safety, make fun of for being different, or ignored and put into the loser category just because of your race here. My classmate even made a music video that touches on it, . People always talk poorly of Troy, however it is what you make it in many regards. If you go to RPI, you should try not to let people's foul mood ruin your experience with Troy. The educational side of RPI is great! There are both good and bad professors, however I have had many professors that were amazing; level headed, caring, excepting, and extremely knowledgeable. I haven't yet decided what I fully think of my experience at RPI, but when I do, I will come back and post it.
