my experience is wonderful at my college. I am learning what I need to know for my future.

If you're not an athlete, you're nobody. This place is super cliquey, it's worse than my high school. Gossip is everywhere, and if you're different (not cis, not het, not into mainstream politics or entertainment), you will not feel welcome.

I believe my school is one of the best Catholic schools around. It has a diverse environment and the teachers truly love what they do. They are always available and I couldn't have picked a better school to become a part of.
