The atmosphere at the school seems great at first. The reason I chose Immaculata was for the people: everywhere I went on my tour, there were people saying hi to each other. I thought it would be my home for the next four years, so I committed. I am now half way through my junior year, and I sometimes regret my decision. I am a biology major with a chemistry minor; both departments are small, underfunded, and can only run a limited number of classes, especially higher level classes. In addition, the school is having financial issues, so they recently laid off a large number of staff members and facilities workers. The next cuts will be to the teachers. If my degree wasn't almost complete, I would transfer.
