it's okay considering its suburban setting
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:18:42Z
multiple dorms are renovated, some are not.
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:18:02Z
They're space, but just far from dorms especially if ur a freshman
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:17:13Z
Many people of different type from various palces
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:16:11Z
As long as you have self-discipline, you will be fine
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:15:18Z
Takes time to get use to the Vassar bubble and community, rather different that the outside world
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:14:35Z
pretty suburban and bucolic ambience
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:13:27Z
They are very generous on financial aid
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:12:50Z
They're a couple of flavors to switch up
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:11:54Z

College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:10:13Z

College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:08:48Z
Food variety isnt the best.
College Freshman 2013-11-19T17:07:58Z
They are rather old and slow
College Freshman 2013-11-09T19:31:28Z
The facilities have their own story. Each is created with a beautiful architect. The athletic centers are good for everyone to come. The student library is large and beautiful. There are also a lot of green spaces.
College Freshman 2013-11-09T19:17:57Z
They offer you as much as possible for the registration process. The workload is magnificent but enjoyable. Everyone can study abroad.
College Freshman 2013-11-09T19:17:56Z
Many professors are excited to talk to you and to discuss your options. Its a lot of work but worth it in the end.
College Freshman 2013-11-09T19:15:55Z
I don't much on off campus housing
College Sophomore 2013-11-05T01:26:19Z
Everything on Vassar's campus is much nicer than anything in the rest of Poughkeepsie. Poughkeepsie is a pretty poor area. Vassar really is a bubble that people tend not to venture outside of.

Ugh. The people at the main dining hall try really hard but the food is mediocre. There's only one other place to eat open during the day and that's pretty good but they both have sort of inconvenient hours. If you ever want to eat after lunchtime but before dinnertime, you're out of luck. Also, none of this is cheap.
College Sophomore 2013-11-05T01:19:34Z
Almost everyone lives on campus. I have heard so many landlord horror stories. There's really hardly anything closer than a mile from campus, and what there is is very expensive. If you have a car or bike, there are a few decent options.
College Sophomore 2013-11-05T01:16:19Z
Nothing is very modern or hi-tech like you'd find at a big state school. There's a pretty good selection of places for students to hang out or study but nothing that exciting.
College Sophomore 2013-11-05T01:12:51Z
There are no bars or clubs that I know of at all. Nightlife consists of parties in dorms, on-campus townhouses, and houses that are just off campus. There is always stuff to do whether you want to party or not.
College Sophomore 2013-11-05T01:10:33Z
Not too many students have cars and those who do are very popular because there's nowhere within walking distance to buy groceries. There are shuttles to Target but they're only on Saturdays and they fill up really fast. Having a car is not a necessity but it's preferable.
College Sophomore 2013-11-05T01:03:04Z
There are not very many computers available for use. I think there are one or two in each dorm that barely work. It's assumed that everyone will have their own computer. The network is usually fine for students but if you have guests it will be almost impossible for them to access wifi on their computers.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
