University of Montevallo is very well dressed. They really boast about how nice the community is and how perfect things are however when a problem arises that is major; they will sweep it under the rug.
commentThis is so true. I've seen it with my very own eyes. When problems occur, Montevallo sweeps it under the rug. For instance, remember the girl who brought a gun on campus? She and another female were fighting over the same boy. Or that crazy police woman, who beat the breaks off her wife. She was arrested for domestic abuse. I've seen a woman with a severe mental illnesses solicit herself on a porn sites. However, nothing could be done. Her parents could not be contacted because of Montevallo's rules of confidentiality. I thought that was ridiculous. The girl was out of her tree! Everyone, even professors made fun of her. It was so sad. She needed an aid to check in on her daily. However, she was left to wonder around campus acting a fool. When I attended there were many students with mental illnesses. It was as if they made up the majority of the student body. Yet the worst of them, the ones who couldn't blend in were shunned. I don't know what the dynamics of the campus are now. Every 4 years brings a different group. I can only tell you about my experiences. It is strange the campus is filled with rejects. Yet they discriminate against others. Once someone had a bowel movement on the bathroom floor or a residence hall. It was a public bathroom. When I heard the news, I began to cry. I wanted to go home that day. There are a lot of people that go on to achieve success. I met some very bright people on that campus, Who had a lot of hangups. You will get a good education if you attend Montevallo. However, the social life is zero. Though I graduated, the school was not for me. I left there feeling very depressed, drained and unsure of myself. I made no connections for a job. So it took me a long time to find one. Sometimes I even questioned if going to College was the right path for me. That is how bad my experience was. If I had it to do all over again, I would have done a thorough check of the campus and student life, before I enrolled. I just enrolled because the school looked small, and friendly.
