I'm going to try to be as unbiased as possible, but I was looking for the typical college experience, and I am not a fan of this school. This place feels a lot more like a stiff boarding school than a college. I can't say I'm surprised as many other negative reviewers have said the same thing. The kids that come here are generally Catholic, sheltered, judgemental, and overall not fun. The coolest people that Ive met here are planning to transfer. Some people complain that people here are only concerned with partying, but theyre simply rich kids who can afford to buy lots of alcohol and sit in their dorm blacking out. They don't genuinely know how to have fun because they're often very pretentious and not friendly. There are many people I've met that don't like it here but stay because of its academic ranking. That's where the high retention rate comes from. In addition, the girls here really aren't good looking at all despite what you might have read or heard. How sexy can you be when you're bundled up in winter clothing half the year?

It you're conservative, sheltered, and catholic you'll fit right in here. Of course almost everyone that got in here is somewhat intelligent and hardworking so you can find people similar to you if you look hard enough.

This school is not horrible, and I know some people can go through this school very happy. I personally am not a fan of willingly placing myself through freezing winters. As a California resident I regret not going to a UC which would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars less and a more open minded student body.

I find that the people here are hardly geniuses either. They're kids who have had everything handed to them and have attended the richest prep schools which force you to participate in extra curricular activities.

This school can get you far because of its name, and I would stay if there weren't better options out there.

commentThere is no absolute. If some say the place is friendly of course not in every aspect and not everybody. That is why some reviews are positive, some are not. -
commentI am actually expecting better reviews about this school. Their reputation is pretty high. Jadine Strey
