Menlo is an awful, miserable place, devoid of any positivity.

The campus is small, the facilities poorly maintained and dilapidated. There has been no new construction since the mid-70's.

THe professors are all rejects from better institutions. They are bitter about their lot, and put forth minimal effort into their jobs. It is not uncommon for them to cancel class frequently without cause, or to show a movie in place of actual teaching.

Their is an abundance of 'group projects,' amorphous tasks in which you and 3-4 other people go through the motions of what you think the professor wants. Note that the professors are uniformly incapable of actually articulating what they expect.

As for the students, there are three distinct groups. One is the 'athletes':these people are somehow convinced that playing their sport is the most important thing for their future. All they care about is football/basketball etc. and devote all their energy to it. These are the same people that come to an 8 AM class and talk the entire time. They belong in high school (which I guess menlo really is…)

The second smaller group is the internationals. They come for whatever bizarre reason led them here. They keep to themselves.

THirdly are the washouts (my cohort): these kids failed out of other colleges and, after being unable to get a career going, were encouraged to go to menlo, the college that will accept anyone. These kids have perhaps the toughest time: we realize the futility of attending a no name farce of a college, and being there everyday is unadulterated misery

while it is true that a college degree is a prerequisite for many jobs, going to a place like menlo gives you zero advantage in the hiring process. Virtually any other place is better. You're better off learning a trade.

Just don't come here: if you can't get into a decent college, find a different career
