    Only the education you will receive will be the Bang for the buck. Philander does not offer much fun activities other then card playing and television watching.

    I would recommend anyone to go to Philander Smith College because of the one on one conversation that you are able to experience with your teachers. And you are always meeting new people so it would be pretty hard to be antisocial.

    I believe that if one were to attend they would thoroughly enjoy the surroundings of the school. You pay for top notch education and Philander would be the perfect place to continue once out of high school
