    Springfield College is a great school, going in as a freshman is obviously scary but they did a great job of bringing us together by having orientation. The dining hall is not very good but you can always find something! The campus is very pretty and nice if you are looking for a smaller campus. Our athletics are amazing and there is always big fan sections! The parties are of course very fun but you just need to find your crowd!

    I love how small the campus is. Instead of just being a number on the attendance sheet, my professors know who I am. And they Want to know who each of us are! If someone is absent in your class, people know. I enjoy the fact that I am not totally invisible. If you want to be, you totally can be, but if you don't try, you aren't forgotten.
    There are very few things at Springfield College that work and/or function logically. The amenities are embarrassingly pathetic, as well as the facilities department in which manages them. The worst of all is the Wi-Fi; nothing loads on your TV, laptop or phone. This results in sports games lagging every three seconds to the point you can't even watch games except for the occasional game that strikes your 10 channel cable package - pretty ironic considering the school prides itself in sports.

    The abysmal WIFI also makes it very frustrating to try to do homework, as each time you press a new page, you have to wait 30-45 seconds for it to load. I will likely transfer by the end of the school year, just like many of my friends plan as well. We simply cannot stand to pay a premium for everything to be broken or just not work.
