Brevard is a lovely college to attend if one is lazy and just wants a degree handed to them after 4 years. It has potential, but one thing in particular is contributing the most to ruining it and that is athletics. With only around 600 students, the percentage of student athletes is over 60%. Is it coincidence that the average ACT score of those who attend this college is only 20 and he average SAT less than 1000? I think not. I do not mean to stereotype athletes as stupid, but I do mean to point out that they are not attending college for an education, that much is obvious just by attending class with them. I have sat in class and watched stupid sports jocks make fun of some of the neatest professors on this planet; it's like you never quite leave the high school setting where the kids play pranks on teachers; it's idiotic. Because athletes have to maintain a certain GPA to be eligible to play, professors teach to the athlete's capabilities, which is dangerously sub-par and boring.The remaining 40% of the student population consists WLEE majors, hippies, and a solid 5% of scholarly human beings (I would estimate). I can be quite honest, the number of times that I have had to visit the library during my year here numbers a shameful one, and that one time was thanks to a "scavenger hunt" to help me get to know campus. Never, ever, have any of my studies required me to make the trip to what is usually my favorite place in the world. After seeing the inside that one time though, it certainly isn't that high up on my list of favorites.

In addition to the miserable state of the academics here, the dorms are disgraceful. In mine, for example, there is no air conditioning. Nor is there an air vent in my bathroom. So how does humidity escape? It doesn't. You should see the mold. I am sure than the state of the walls behind their coverings is absolutely abominable. To shorten the list of grievances…

1. It is too expensive.

2. The food choices are limited. It's caf food or none at all.

3. Work study? Oh no, the waiting list probably reaches into the next millennia.

4. In my year here, I have had two professors who only had their masters.

Here are the few pluses:

1. The area is beautiful.

2. The town is quaint, a perfect place to take your lover for a fine, yuppy evening out.

3. It is walking distance to anything that you might need.

4. Volunteer opportunities abound.

5. There are a few professors who I want as my parents; they are amazing.

6. A creek runs through campus.

7. At present, there are two very talented opera singers that I enjoy, and a magnificent theatre group.
