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.
Review Rust College
Rust College is in a really small town, making it hard to do things for fun. The campus life is not really all that big but there are improvements happening. The dorms are older but eventually you get used to it. The food is alright but after a while you get tired of eating it. We have most regular sports besides football.Some of the policies are a little outrageous, especially when it comes to the dorms. But, once again, eventually, you get used to it. It is what you make it.
Rust college is an great school, but I did not qualify for any scholarships coming to school here. My freshman year first semester was good , but I fell into the category of failure hanging with the wrong crown and among all that got sick every day with an out break of hives. Then , sophomore year I didn't not qualify for FAFSA , because I played around and failed some of the most important classes and now I am responsible for an 6,000 balance. My head is on correctly and I'm here to find aid . I will not stop trying to succeed I am the first to come to college out of an African American family.
