My favorite experience that I've had so far is talking to one of my professors. I never ever thought that I could just go to them just to talk; I thought they didn't care about their students. In all reality they do care about their students and never wants to see someone fail. I soon remembered that they're people too, and have been through what I'm currently going through My school is unique because it's an all women's college that inspires young women! They constantly remind us to strive to be the best and just because your a woman doesn't mean that you cannot do things other people do. If I could do it all over I would pick Converse College. Even though I think it's tough and challenging, it pushes me to work harder. After my first semester I struggled with my grades and was ashamed to take extra help. Now that I've talked with my professors and gone to tutoring, I saw a significant change. My grades went from F to C's in the short time span I had to get them up, and my GPA went up and now I'm eligible to play softball for the season!

The athletics are okay. It's a Division II school, and the student involvement is great! I didn't think a lot of fans would support the athletic department, but their is a lot of them and they're passionate. The athletic facilities are pretty rad and we pretty much have the best trainers. Many students who live on campus are athletes. Team performances vary, they're usually win one game and lose the next five. They have the talent, they just need to push themselves and play like they want to compete.

I love living on campus! The dorms are older because they are the original but that's what gives it the historic feel. They are well kept so they are not falling apart they are still in really good condition. We just built brand new senior apartments on campus and are renovating a new freshmen dorm. The amenities are average. We get a fridge and microwave upon arrival, a bed, a closet, and a desk and chair. The social atmosphere is excellent! Everyone is friendly and bright all the time. Everyone kind of knows everyone because we are a smaller school. Our school is a private school so it is pricey. However, we were just in the news all over the world for our tuition reset. The school has lowered tuition making it more affordable to attend a well educated private school.
