Converse College is an open, inviting place full of intelligent, insightful women. The teachers are willing to help and provide for you by offering resources for internships, jobs, gallery openings, and many more things. The campus and surrounding facilities are well-kept and their employees are always willing to help. The campus safety and honor systems make Converse a safe place for all. For example, I can leave my MacBook anywhere and know that it will still be there.
The application process is also very easy due to the advisors and admissions counselors who are quick to respond to questions. In fact, I was accepted here the day I applied.
Lastly, Converse hosts many events for the local community and students to enjoy. Theatre performances, festivals, sports events, and more are always going on around Converse.
Do not worry about coming to Converse College. No matter who you are, Converse will make room and time for you to grow.

I liked Converse College overall. I think the school suffers from a lack of communication though, as different faculty and staff members will give you different answers to the same question. The food made me sick many times, and I refused to eat in the Gee Dining Hall after three dysentery situations.
I enjoy Converse for what it is. Its a small all girls school with out dated traditions. They try too hard to enforce traditions that many girls no longer care about. They will nickel and dime you for everything, and you don't see too much care from an administrative stand point. The benefit of a small all girls school is that the professors do care, and that is the most important thing to me, but the fact that the board puts such little effort into hearing the student body is very discouraging.
