2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Sometimes I felt that the tuition money was not necessarily money well spent.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I don't know much about the job success rating for this school. I haven't met many (if any) graduates of the school.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Campus security is generally commonly seen on campus.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: There were a lot of bugs. The elevator often didn't work. The dormitories were old.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is non existent at my school.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I found the professors to at times be unavailable. I worked hard but sometimes didn't feel that my work really paid. I had a very difficulty first semester with very little emotional support except from family

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I do not really have any worries when I am walking around on campus by myself. I do get a little antsy at night when I am by myself just because it is dark and there are dark spots on campus. Campus safety are not always there in the dark places.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The air does not work properly, and we have trouble with the hot water most of the time. We have bug problems, and the buildings are very old. Some of the buildings do not look safe, and sometimes we do not feel safe.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Our school does not have Greek life because we are a women's college. We have teams classes called the "Red Devils" and the "Pink Panthers". The school and the students are very excited about being in one of these groups. It shows the sisterhood of the college and the campus.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The students do not always put their hearts into the games, and we do see some frustrations between the players. There is not much fan support because we have such heavy workloads.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My school is a great Liberal arts school. The only problem I find in the school is the lack of majors and classes to choose from. The school is small but there are not an abundance of choices. But I would choose my school to attend for years to come.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: the campus safety staff keep us very safe on campus

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although every school may have its problems Converse has very little

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.

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.
