In a nutshell, the problem I have with Ohio-WesleyanOct 03 2008Economics
In a nutshell, the problem I have with Ohio-Wesleyan are few but serious. Firstly, I am shocked by how dependent the social and extracurricular scene has become on networking tools. Consider a recent experience I had trying to find a volunteer job in this bustling metropolis called Delaware, Ohio-Basically, I had to call at least 15 different organizations and beg and plead with them to let me volunteer. "Hey Mr, can I please pay in excess of 60 dollars to fill up my tank and drive 20 minutes on busy roads and through diabolical weather to work in your office doing your tasks without pay?" I definitely think it should be easier for students to negotiate their way around campus and outside of town to get involved; right now there's a serious disconnect between what's advertised and what's actually taking place. More importantly, however, there's the issue of the academics. I've seen both worlds and am ultimately not convinced that the small setting here makes lectures any more direct or intimate. You still have to put up with the same busywork nonesense with distant, standoffish professors, only difference really is the rooms are smaller so they feel cramped and stuffy! Oh, and you're in Delaware, Ohio which basically sucks. It's a given that there are some excellent professors here, but it's also a given that are there excellent professors at Ohio-State, Denison, Kenyon, Wooster, Mount Union, John Caroll, have I listed all the colleges in Ohio? Let me move on to the next state, how about California? Yeah California's niiiiiiice
