Major: Other (This Major's Salary over time)
I am an undecided liberal arts major looking to transfer. This school blows. The campus life is really subdued and somewhat suffocating, mostly due to the type of person who chooses the school, the strict no alcohol policy (even off campus—they actually try to enforce this), and the noise restrictions of the snooty queen anne neighborhood. Night life is boring as hell. The school is not worth the money unless you are a nursing, pre-med, or business major. Tuition/room/board is $35k/yr. It is NOT WORTH IT. The money doesn't go to improve programs, but rather to build the endowment and raise professor salaries (they are pitifully low at present moment). The president and administration have somewhat archaic values and are very concerned that the school uphold its Christian image, which can be hypocritical and at odds with what values most of the professors actually profess.
