4 College Senior

Overall Experience: My experience at Philander Smith College has been great! The school is very small and we have a family-oriented campus. The teachers can sometimes be unavailable but other then that everything is great!

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Going into my senior year and it has been quite difficult, I attended with a partial volleyball scholarship and 7 hours away from home. We have had a different coach every year since I have attended. I no longer play due to barely any more playing time and most of all finacial issues. Going into my junior year I was debating on playing and after going through practices and tryouts. Coach asked me what I wanted to do the only problem was they had no more money to offer and wanted me to get through that year free and they take care of me my senior year. That was a no go. On top of that I lost my work study because they start offering it to students with a balance only. Was hard to find a well paying job. Financial aid always lost some of my paperwork every year. They are firing the best teachers and hiring in other departments. The teachers i have now don't even attend and even left me as his student teacher to collect all the assignments and that'll be my grade. Some students would love that easy A but at the same time what information are you gaining. I'm taking out loans to go here and attend classes just for the teacher to be a no show, I'. not benefiting at all. I'm already $45,000 in loans. There is lack of security, their unorganized, fine for everything, buying smart-boards and building new building when there needs to be repairing in the housing division. I have had leaks in my room and everything, you have to have the meal plan if you stay on campus, even if you don't eat in there you're paying, etc. The only thing that made the school unique was the teaching staff, if i had to do it all over i would not be here and these are just some of the reasons why.

Campus Housing: Philander Smith College honestly has some of the absolute BEST dorms in the country. They're the most spacious dorms that allows you have as much privacy as you want. All dorms rooms have their own personal bathrooms in the rooms for just two people to share. It's much better than communal bathrooms!. There's also a Resident Assistant on each floor that really ensures that harmony exists everywhere within the dormitories.
