The campus is really pretty. Most people are friendly, but there are also quite a few weird ones. Because it's a small school, it's important to find the right people to hang out with. I notice that there aren't really very many cliques, but then again it's not that diverse.

The administration advertises the school as one that has great programs and offers students a positive environment for growth. They also claim that it's an "up and coming" university that puts an emphasis on liberal learning. In this way, they are very deceiving. The school feels like it's an extension of high school, with daily classes, secretive drinking, and a crappy city to go with it. Just about everybody is a white middle-class young student from Virginia. I don't feel like I'm getting my money's worth by coming here.
