If you don’t have the resources to support yourself, this school is incredibly difficult to interact with—especially if you have intersecting identities. I’ve had a really negative experience because of it. From what I hear, this school can be great when you’re white, fully-abled, cis, and have the resources that come with affluence.
I came here really wanting to find a community of likeminded individuals and, while I am disappointed this school let me and some of my close friends down in such a traumatic function, there was some good. The food wasn’t awful and some of the professors are amazing. I’d highly recommend Regina Duthely to anyone!
This all being said, this school neglects to protect its protected identities & in doing so, makes its environments inaccessible.
