I love my school! Sisterhood 4 Life! Bennett is a really good college, at first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. But overtime I grew to love it. Bennett has some room for improvement in some areas and needs to work some problems out. Overall, I think Bennett is great and every women should experience the Sisterhood of Bennett College.

I was one of the "Bennett Chose Me" girls. I will admit I had a hatred towards the school (especially going during #StandWithBennett). I was pretty involved too. Nevertheless, it was not for me. The only good thing about Bennett is some students &alumnae. However, I should mention that while I was there some buildings ceilings started falling, I passed a lot of classes with little effort,& the school needs more transparency there is a lot going on behind the scenes. I was sad when I left Bennett because I am leaving my start and friends... I hope that Bennett survives this battles but I do not know if that is possible
My experience at Bennett College was totally unexpected. There are no food options other than the cafe which the food there is not very good, and Sandella's Flatbread and Starbucks. The staff is not trained properly to make coffee at Starbucks its full off milk with no coffee. The dorms need major reservations other than the newest dorm "Honors Hall". The rest of the dorms need remodeling. They ignore the mold in some of the rooms and the bathroom. My overall experience at Bennett College is not so great.
