Professional with expertise in this field
This college is a poor imitation of its former self. It is very badly administered, woefully underfinanced, and unable to provide a quality education to anyone. When you have nearly as many majors as you have full time faculty, you know you're in trouble. The transition from a women's college to the current coed college was manipulated by a willful president and board chair who never, despite their protestations to the contrary, seriously considered alternatives. They cannot and should not be trusted by the public.
