Date: May 20 2005
Major: Religion/Religious (This Major's Salary over time)
I was a linguistics and religion double major. Liked most of the teachers in the religion (Dr. Hock is AWESOME) and about half of the linguistics ones. People are fairly shallow, they put more value on having a ton of aquaintances and less value on having a few close friends. I only keep in touch with 2 people from SC and one of them, even though I love her, is a total flake. I tried some campus groups my freshman year, when I lived in campus housing, but they were filled with shallow people who I couldn't connect with. The GE classes are a ploy for money, I am all for a well-rounded education, but if that was what they really wanted then they would have allowed transfered GE classes, but they don't (my linguistic advisor actually told me it was because they lost too much money doing that). Some GE teachers would give you bad grades if you disagreed with them politically. I once had a TA tell the class after handing out a round of bad grades that she graded us lower than we deserved to encourage us to work harder! Too much beauracracy at the school too. Additionally, financial aid is terrible. I went to USC instead of another university that gave me an awesome scholarship which you keep unless you get bad grades, because at USC they paid full tuition for my freshman year, but then gave me nothing the next year because one document was in a day late. Now I am deep in debt and I don't have a very good job because the so-called Trojan family/network is non-existant in Washington, DC. I lived near campus (within about 2mi) and my husband and I's cars were broked into 5 times we had all our cds and radios taken (they weren't even nice radios, the cheapest ones you can buy in the stores), I was mugged at gunpoint and my husband was mugged at knifepoint and this was just walking from car to apartment (like 10 feet) at 8ish at night, and I took self-defense. So there is tons of crime and much of it is completely unpreventable. They tell you to travel in groups but then you just read about gangs mugging groups of people.
