Although I was admitted to Bennington [for freshman entry], I chose to enroll at [another school] because its new program promised a strong focus on classical acting...I now regret this decision, and reapplied to Bennington to complete a more academically diversified and fulfilling college experience...I have missed the atmosphere of collaboration and the unabashed joy in learning for its own sake that I had hoped to find in my college experience. —A transfer student, class of 2022
