McDaniel College Reviews
Review McDaniel College
Though it isn't the best, attending McDaniel College has been one of the best experiences of my life so far. My time here has allowed me to make valuable connections with my peers and many of the faculty and staff members that work at the school. Securing a job at the school's Information Technology department has landed me several opportunities throughout my two academic school years and one summer of full-time work. Furthermore, I have gained valuable experience that may soon guarantee me a job right out of college by working either at the school or a private company. My choice to attend McDaniel has given me many gifts including the motivation to move forward in life and achieve personal goals.
The quality of the residence halls are overall average, and I have seen worse. However, the price for living in them is a bit too high. There is very little consistency among the residence halls, and the quality is different for each one. The campus-owned houses along the streets are habitable, but are certainly poor in quality. They cost too much for how much they are actually worth, and you pretty much pay the high price for the freedom of having a kitchen (to dodge the expensive meal plan) and having a bathroom you only have to share with at most eight people. There has actually been talk of having the houses torn down for years now, but they still rent them out. They are also sometimes infested with either insects, bed bugs or mice.
Campus safety will escort anyone to the hospital in an emergency. Sometimes, they drag their feet when a student needs transportation. Our campus is not crutch friendly, so people with crutches cannot go around easily on campus. Campus safety does not help students with transportation when they are on crutches. The safety in the residence halls is not all that great because when I expressed my concern, they ignored me. I had sent several emails about my safety concern and the area coordinator did not reply. The area coordinator was prejudice and took the other party's side automatically. The school has a racial preference, and I was not in that category. He was so concerned about the other's party safety that he threatened me. The other party got away with harassing me. After this event, I was paranoid and nervous around campus.
