As a current student, I would advise anyone looking into not to go here. For a school which promotes ideals of freedom, liberty, and personal responsibility, it treats you like a child. You are completely incapable of making your own decisions—everyone expects your mommy and daddy to do all the talking/paying etc. for you. They force you to buy a meal plan whether you want it or not, the food is atrocious (I wouldn't give it to a dog I liked) and is ridiculously overpriced. Lunches are averaged around $12.50 per and dinner is around $15 (regardless of what you eat, which for me is typically cereal). If you do attend here, expect to get food poisoning at least 3 times a week and have the shits.

The social life is non-existent. Everyone is totally arrogant and judgmental. I like to wear short shorts in the warm weather (of which there is little—majority of the time you are here it is in the negative degree weather and apparently they have never heard of SALTING GODDAMN SIDEWALKS) and get stares of contempt. You won't fit in with the girls here unless you wear long, floor length jean skirts, or are willing to dress up like you're going in for an interview every day. Seriously, who wears heels to 8am classes!? Especially if you're just going back to bed afterwards till your 1pm??

Guys. Nope, don't even think about finding a guy who is normal. Boys here (I say boys because they are so immature) wear fedoras, smoke pipes, and stick their noses in the air as they walk. There's even a kid with a scooter. What are you, 5?

In general, if you are a Bible-thumping, homeschooling, radical conservative looking to get a low-end job working for Heritage Foundation then this is the college for you. If you want a social life, solid academics, real world experience, and any kind of respect, you won't find it here.

Good review. I agree with the treating students like children. Enforcing morality is the opposite of liberty. On the short shorts, rock 'em girl. Sunbathe. Even if it's cold. Give those homeschooled, pipe-smoking, fedora-wearing, scooter-riding, voluntarily-taking-a-class-at-8 a.m. boys something to tell their mother about on the phone.

There are normal people there. Try a football player. There is a shortage of girls, so if you are as cool as your review suggests you would probably be in high demand at the Delt Sig house.
