The people who run the place think along the same lines of the "Shakers", who think the outside world with all its sex, rock, movies, and other good things are actually evil.
Extreme Christian fundamentalism is its doctrine. Christians who really don't know any better go there instead of a fully accredited liberal arts college. Students think it's a good place only because they are constantly told that it is a good place. People who do know better would say fuck all that!
Now, it would be unfair to say everything about it is bad. What energy they don't use for sex, eating, and other necessary functions of life, they put into art, music, and theater. The choirs and orchestras are top notch, and the theater productions are as well. But you have to think, is all that really worth it? I don't think so.
