First of all, whoever in the administration posted these repetitive, obviously biased positive comments needs to be fired. It seems like they think that these positive reviews can fool us but it's completely obvious to us. Second of all, I'm not going to post a lengthy negative review as it is not my personality. All I can say is the CNU police department needs to be revamped. I have gotten a reckless driving ticket because I failed to stop at a stop sign. However, the stop sign was a temporary stop sign behind a tree in the middle of a busy intersection at night time. I did not see the stop sign at all. The temporary lights were dimly lit and the turn was an arc. I yielded(slowing down and looking for cars but did not stop). The rent a cop went full speed at me and called in two other rentacops for backup. This is crazy. I had a clean driving records, never drank a beer in my life, no speeding tickets, never had drugs or anything like that and they treated me like a criminal. I paid 800 dollars for a lawyer and another for a court case appointment to help reduce the 3 points out of 5 and the judge thought the CNU cop was ridiculous. I was shaking in court thinking I was going to be sent to jail.

Third, the foods suck. It is the same like everyday.

The "Christians" here are unbelievable. They are so snotty and arrogant and clique.

The professors here are good but that's what I paid for anyway. I also paid for a college experience too…guess that's money wasted.

They are always building things around here and it sucks because I will never get to be in them when I graduate. Instead of money going towards a better education, they are allocating them to better facilities. And the library is unbelievable. I had to find the real library in the back and that was a year after I came here. 95% of the space in the library is in my opinion a waste. Most people use the library as a resource of social activities. That's why I get pissed off when the library is so loud I could barely even focus on my papers. Even the librarians got so used to the noise.

I totally regret coming here. If I had the chance to go to a better college at the same level of education, it would be GMU. Their basketball team is one of the best in the world, you're near Washington DC and a lot of internships available(something CNU is missing a lot, I had to find my own), and it's near my house. I don't know what I was thinking coming here. I thought it would totally change my life and give me a great experience. Guess I was wrong.

commentYou really think GMU's basketball team is one of the best in the world? You're clearly delusional…
responseObviously there was something wrong with your driving or else the case would have been dismissed. Looks like your selection in lawyers was as clouded as your choice in schools.
