Converse College Reviews
Review Converse College
Small campus, friendly staff, and a great student-faculty ratio! I really have enjoyed my time here so far and I am very pleased with the education I've been receiving so far. It is the only college in my state to offer my major, and is very close to my home. All students are taken care of efficiently at this exceptional women's college.
My favorite experience that I've had so far is talking to one of my professors. I never ever thought that I could just go to them just to talk; I thought they didn't care about their students. In all reality they do care about their students and never wants to see someone fail. I soon remembered that they're people too, and have been through what I'm currently going through My school is unique because it's an all women's college that inspires young women! They constantly remind us to strive to be the best and just because your a woman doesn't mean that you cannot do things other people do. If I could do it all over I would pick Converse College. Even though I think it's tough and challenging, it pushes me to work harder. After my first semester I struggled with my grades and was ashamed to take extra help. Now that I've talked with my professors and gone to tutoring, I saw a significant change. My grades went from F to C's in the short time span I had to get them up, and my GPA went up and now I'm eligible to play softball for the season!
There are definitely both ups and downs about attending Converse. Small class sizes allow you to form special connections with your professors and your peers. The small student body also gives students more access to leadership and career opportunities. However, Converse is not for everyone. There are a limited number of on-campus activities, there is no party scene unless you visit a nearby coed school, and Spartanburg is not a very exciting city.
