Anyone able to provide some info?

<p>Hi,</p>

<p>I am pretty interested in the college, but would like to ask someone, preferably an alum or a relative of one, about the school.</p>

<p>Some of the questions I have are:
Is it vegetarian friendly?
How are the people there?
Is racial diversity an issue (asian Indian over here)?
Do courses have tests and assessments like other courses?</p>

<p>Thanks for any information!</p>

<ul>
<li><p>It's usually vegetarian friendly. Depends on who the hired/professional cook is and depends on who the student cooks are. They might be vegetarian themselves. Even if they're not, they'll probably make an effort to provide vegetarian options.</p></li>
<li><p>How are the people there? Varies greatly based on the faculty, staff, and student body. There's very high turnover. It's a small, close-knit community. Everyone's generally friendly and supportive of each other.</p></li>
<li><p>The school's only had a handful of black students in its history and most of those have been in the last decade. But that's just how it happened; it's welcoming to all races and ethnicities. In recent years there have been greater efforts to pursue diversity.</p></li>
<li><p>Depends on the course. The curriculum focuses on liberal arts, so lots of those kinds of courses simply require you to write papers. More traditional math/science courses would have to have tests. Independent studies are a whole different story.</p></li>
</ul>

<p>The college changes a lot from year to year. You should direct your questions to the current admissions committee. There's contact information on the website.</p>
