Check the # of sex offenders who live with in a 1 mile radius of the school. That should be enough to make you not want to go here. Also check the schools food safety inspection lol

I never realized how dumb people are until I came here. It is very rare to find someone intelligent at this school. The fact that the school has a +80% acceptance rate says everything…they accept anyone (cuz no one wants to go here) and every one transfers out. After your first semester, the next semester it will seem half the population disappeared cuz everyone transferred from here.

This school is extremely cliquey and very high school like. You have all of these clubs, quidditch (sp?), yarn club, running club, rugby etc. People here only hang out with their clubs. It is very HS like because you goto class, you go back to your dorm and generally surf the internet with the crappy browser speed because everyone here is very antisocial, odd, and or ususally their is nothing to do here.

People will say there is "no greek life" but that is a lie or the person has no idea what they are talking about…which verifies the fact people here do not get out enough if they go here and don't even know they exist. There are 2 frats here and a sorority. 1 frat has been here for about 20 years…psi upsilon. They have a bad rep for drugging girls, drug usage poor grades, etc. They are very small because no one really likes them. Then there is Kappa Sigma which is the largest frat and seem to be a good groupd of guys. Greek life is stupid, but its stupider to say it doesn't exist here.

The food here sucks. bathrooms and dorms are gross.

Career services is unhelpful and just tells you to check usa jobs.

Heres my best advice to you:

1) do not go here.

2) do not listen to a word a tour guide says to you. Some of them are paid and they have a way of spinning things to trick students to go here (cuz the school is losing so many students) but students end up coming here and leaving pissed cuz they were lied to.

Hope I saved a few students from coming to this horrible school. Literally, cannot think of a redeeming feature…campus is beautiful..minus the construction that wakes you up at 6 am every morning. that's about it.
