Rust College Reviews
I am a senior at Rust College and I like that the professors want to see all students want to succeed. I think that Rust College need change the way the things are far as the dorms, cafe food and campus itself. Students complain a lot about the dorms and the activities that are taking place. Maybe if faculty got young minds to make up the activities things would be different around the campus.
My experience at Rust college has been very good so far as me being a current freshman in the first year experience program. The students and professors at rust college are helpful as far as helping to make sure the freshmen were to get to their classes. I can tell that the professors are teaching what the student needs to learn, my classes so far are going very well. Also, I know where to go if I need anything fixed or check out, Rust College has a very Mass Communication program. But I really like the way Rust College students and professors get their business and class assignments done.
This school has no white girls. I only like white girls, so that was kinda balls. Everyone here is ratchet. The teachers honestly don't give a single care about my success. It's honestly horrible here; go to trade school.
