Vassar College Reviews
This is an amazing school where many competitive students, advocating leaders, and the future of our generations exist as a cohesive community. Even though it is a very small campus, the dynamics of the school allows you to experience everyday differently. Throughout the years in school, you will be able to meet people who are slowly changing your view of the world and also pushing for change in the school, community, nation, and the world. This is one of the best decisions I have made to come to Vassar
If you are a minority student from a low income background it is easy to feel lonely on this campus; too easy to feel that Vassar does not have your needs at heart or are willing to prioritize you. Spending everyday constantly surrounded by people who do not look like you or share even 1/5 of your experiences is what is hard. Trying to feel grateful for the scholarship that is not enough, for the stress and pressure put on every student at college, is difficult. Be prepared to trade soundness of mind for a degree.
The professors, President Bradley, and administration, campus , organizations, and intramural sports were terrific!
