It wasn't challenging; it's the easiest thing and world, but you're not going to learn valid information.

If you can breath, pick up a pencil and in speak in short, slightly coherent sentences--you're in.

Also, there was a psych major in a the SENIOR PSYCH SEMINAR who could not pronounce "psychology" properly! The MAJOR HE WAS ONE SEMESTER OF GRADUATING WITH A B.A. FROM AND HE COULDN'T PRONOUNCE THE NAME???????

A small, homey college in a small historical community near the blue ridge parkway. Is a great school those interested in music,art and the outdoors. The classroom size allows for a student to get one on one with their professor.

There was a lot of student-on-student abuse while I was there. I felt like certain people were favored by the administration and campus leaders over others. I actually witnessed a campus leader spreading multiple rumors about a student, including calling this student a "slut". Recently there was a sexual assault on campus; the administration handled it by having a separate assemblies for the male students and then another for female students. They essentially told the male students that they need to keep it in their pants (blaming all men for the actions of one depraved individual) and told the female students they needed to not be so wild and walk around after dark (it's their fault for not be sheltered-little virgins).

They are way too backward and conservative.

Also, they were having financial problems the third year I was there and the first thing they did was cut the ONLY nurse at the student health center.

They do not care about you, do not go to this abusive school.
