Campus is beautiful and there are a few good professors, but very few. The rest are rude, unhelpful, unapproachable, and show obvious favoritism. All but a couple of faculty members at the riding program are completely useless. The road to and from the barn sucks, as does the footing in both outdoors. Horses are constantly lame. The director is downright arrogant and doesn't care about her impression upon students or their parents, which is ridiculous. The showers are repeatedly out of hot water, and the food is terrifying. Academically the work load requires a lot of busy work; students who get anything above a D+ can plan on breaking their backs, never having fun, and never sleeping…I don't care how smart you are. The college is more of a stuck in the 1800's finishing school than anything else, and there are countless unemployed recent graduates. Security is horrible and the surrounding area is disgusting. It's nothing but an estrogen and ego filled waste of space in backwoods Virginia.
