I know that this says that I'm still there, but the reality is that I had to transfer out after 3 semesters. This place was a fucking prison, on the planet bullshit, in the galaxy of
This Sucks Camel Dicks
(appropriate, really, given the mascot).

I originally went there for Pharmacy, and I liked the setting. It was a really beautiful campus, nicely condensed into a small area, and easily accessible. Dorms were a bit cramped, but not bad compared to some of the others I've seen. Being from very out of state (Ct), I didn't have the luxury of a car, friends, or the ability to go home every weekend, as 90% of the people there did. As I'm not a social creature, I at first saw nothing wrong with the complete lack of things to do there. I was content to sit in my room and play videogames, surf the (patrolled and restricted) internet and other stuff. But after a while, it sucked. EVERYTHING was closed on sundays, and what didn't closed operated at ridiculously short hours at random times. Even Chick-Fil-A, one of the only redeeming factors of the place, was closed.

The people there were indeed, very welcoming, for the most part. I cannot say that I once met an unfriendly person there, If anything, some seemed too friendly; almost like a 'Stepford Wives' kinda thing.

The religion there was frequently preached, with the weekly CUW religious propaganda class, and several classes being affected by religion. There was seriously a Bio/Anatomy professor there who seriously refused to teach the class about Evolution, on the basis that it went against Christianity. Also, I really don't see what the mandatory religion classes had to do with any major outside of the divinity school; it as a waste of credit hours and time, especially when one didn't gain a single thing from the course. WTF.

Though very nice, the campus was constantly undergoing construction, the dorms were old and musty, the wi-fi was often rendered useless thanks to the presence of concrete, cinder blocks and brick, there's barely any tv channels, and the internet is RESTRICTED. YEAH. I seriously got removed from the internet for an hour because I accidentally OPENED (not used; OPENED [by accident]) uTorrent. Also, couldn't post/look at images on 4chan, or any "naughty" things. Sucked mad bawls.

Overall, this place has the appearance of a pretty cool, little school in a nice area, but really, it's a prison if you don't have a car/friends. There's nothing to do there or anywhere near there. Researchers living in antarctica probably have better access to goods and services than the unfortunate residents of Buies Creek. Avoid, avoid, AVOID.
