nsferred out. Honestly not a whole lot of people cared about things larger than themselves. Involvement in clubs and causes was pretty minimal, and I knew multiple clubs that folded due to lacking sufficient members. One political club even gave up existing explicitly because so few people cared! Another one only exists about every other year, and another folded when its last members graduated! Only one political group representing a party exists consistently, but even it has small membership. The musical ensembles on campus are also disappointingly small. People don't tend to care about things larger than themselves.

I was also disappointed by the lack of tradition here. There is the

Coordinate College System
but that just serves to divide students needlessly and make the student governments less efficient. Unlike other schools, there are no traditions where the students all just get together to celebrate something. It is about looking formal as you are inducted into the school, not fun events that create a sense of community and camaraderie. It also does not help that the student body is from so many different states. Only 18% of students are in-state, and so there is no shared background and a lot of your friends will leave forever after graduation.

I also had particularly bad experiences with my roommate freshman year and a harassment case that I feel was not dealt with well.

The academics are pretty good, although there are other schools in VA that are better, but I couldn't really grow as a person because of the lack of extracurricular opportunity.

I'd give the school a 2/5. At least it has money and looks nice.
