4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The professors are unique and enjoy teaching their classes. They all have open door policies and care about the success of their students inside or outside of the classroom. They also work well with athletes when classes need to be missed with prior notice.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The alumni network is extensive. They are always looking for students who have the same interests. Most students will complete a job/internship while in college that supports their futures. The services are always willing to help students find their right major and post-graduate job.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is nice on campus because everything is close to the dorms and there is parking for all the buildings. Most room have something unique about them which makes each student's experience different. Social atmosphere on hallway depends on who else is living on the hall.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Students have one close friend that is involved in some sport. Teams do fairly well in their season. There is school spirit for the college as a whole. School spirit is not solely devoted to athletics.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The classes are small which gives students to have a relationship with professors. The classes are challenging but they really do prepare students for the future in whatever occupation they choose to follow. There are many campus activities that promote student leadership and involvement.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus. I know the dorms are not worth 10,000. Only the new buildings and the senior apartments are worth 10,000.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: We do not have a greek life. It would be great to have greek life so different etnicities can get involved

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do not really pay attention to the altheltic department because more money is incorporated around the sports department.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The music program is pretty descent. Some of the proffessors are really helpful while the others are kind of "pretentious". Its very discouraging sometimes when teachers talk down on you.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus and can walk alone at night if I need to,

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the class sizes a lot. I also really enjoy the variety of courses offered to the students.

Overall Experience: I don't really use these centers, but I am told that they are exceptional.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I'm very antisocial and I don't talk to the people on my hall often.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: It's an all women's college so there are no sororities or fraternities except for our fake fraternity.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: I am not a sports person, so I can't really judge our sports programs effectively.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Converse College is the best decision I have made in my life.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Each student has a student I.D. that we use to swipe for meals and get into dorms. Each I.D. card has a unique four digit pin to protect from anyone picking up a card and swiping into a hall. Each dorm requires non- Converse students to sign in and only two per student. There are several security stations out in the parking lots. Campus safety is constantly checking parking lots and driving around campus at night.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a music student, I haven't had the opportunity to take classes outside of the music school. Inside the music school however, the professors are very involved in their fields of study and have fun teaching. However, they have lives outside of teaching, as most of them are active performers in the area, so we get to see what our fields of study are really like. For music classes, it's wise to make friends with upper clansman who have been through the courses so you can get help. To be a musician you have to know your stuff and the professors for the most part make you attain that level of knowledge.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As a freshman, I haven't had a lot of experience in career aspects yet.

Converse College is a women's college, but that's not what sets it apart from other schools: it's the students' love for the College that makes it stand out. The school has a lot going for it. Students repeatedly point out that Converse’s academics are top-notch, especially its well-known music school. The students also feel that professors are dedicated to their academic advancement inside and outside of class. In addition to its academics, Converse offers an excellent campus community; women generally like and trust one another and feel safe on campus. The community also has many different traditions that make students feel closer to one another, more like sisters than classmates.

However, Converse has its disadvantages, the main one being the limited social life on and off campus. There are few good parties or other events on campus, and to make it worse, most students go home on the weekends. The town of Spartanburg is fine for shopping and food, but it seriously lacks in good places to hang out. The major bar in Spartanburg is Wild Wings, which means that you’re pretty limited if you want to get out and party. Yet, depending on what you’re looking for, Converse can be a great school for you. If you’re looking for an active and vibrant social life and some great parties, you might want to consider another school in another town. If you want to develop academically and professionally as well as find lifelong friends, then you should absolutely consider coming to Converse. Its traditions and academics are both spectacular.
