Date: May 15 2008 Major: Unknown (This Major's Salary over time) Bennington is a great place for the right student. If you are interested in lots of things and do not want to be limited by departments or disciplines, then it could be for you. It works best if you come to the college with a decent understanding of reading, writing, math, and science. Bennington is run more like a graduate school than a college and I have found that Bennington students are better prepared for graduate school in comparison to others even from top programs. It is a place of openness and curiosities, but there are slackers. However, each student can choose for him or herself what to get out of the program. Those that choose to go for it get more out of it than the average college student. The design of the community really stripes away the artificial aspects of college and exposes you to the work or skills that will serve you for the rest of your life. I would not be in the position I am today if it had not been for Bennington.
