4 College Freshman

Transportation: Public safety takes trips places all the time, and if you ask them they will drive you almost anywhere.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I like my major at school, and there are a lot of job opportunities.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship yet.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics are a huge part of campus life. Football games are a lot of fun to watch.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off-campus yet so I can't properly rate it.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: There are a lot of food places, including two wawas within 15 minutes. There is a mall close by as well.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Some guys are jerks and some of the girls can be mean.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: A lot of people always go out on the weekend and have a lot of fun.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I am not apart of the greek life so I can't properly rate them.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The courses seem more difficult than most universities and some of the professors are not very good at teaching.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: They help you whenever you need it.

3 College Junior

Transportation: Campus is small, and what little transportation you could need is provided by public safety. There is a plaza within walking distance for convenience items, but in order to find any real entertainment, you need a car. No one takes the bus.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: People party at private houses. Greek life is huge, but it's not the only place to party. Make some friends and more likely than not, you'll find a party.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of really great options within about five minutes from the school if you have a car. Without a car, you're limited to pizza and Chinese food, which isn't awful, but by and large, it's not exciting either.

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There isn't a lot of variety, which kills me. However, everything is at a reasonable price and what they offer is delicious. The best place is Mama's because of their student discount and it's a block or two away from the campus.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Most days the weather isn't bad. It's relatively normal considering the seasons.

4 College Freshman

Parking: There are usually spots open all around the school that you don't have to pay for. The parking lot is also free but you need to sign in with public safety. There is also $5 fee but you get it back after you sign out. If you want to get off campus a car is usually needed, but there are shuttles on certain days that can take you off campus. It's also very convenient to park wherever you want.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: You have to work for it but you can get it. You have to fight for it every year so that you have the aid you need. Start early so that you can work through the process and fix any problems.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The taxis aren't that great some days, but they are cheap and the bus terminal is very close by. For those traveling to New York like I do, It can be a relatively easy ride to the city and then from there there are trains.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: The school is small, so there isn't a huge party scene. However, if you ever want one its easy to find. Transportation isn't needed, since a lot of the parties are close to campus. However, if you do need a ride, you can call public safety and they will drive you back to your dorm. If you are clearly intoxicated and seem to be in danger to yourself and those around you you can get in trouble. However, if you don't deem to be causing trouble, they let you go, no questions asked. There is a drinking scene, but you don't have to partake if you don't want to. It's a great place just to dance and socialize.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports here are wide in variety. During the weekend games, a huge crowd always comes out to support the teams. However, there are some sports that don't get as much recognition. There is still a fan following but it's not always big. The teams are usually very close on and off the field. Often times you see a lot of the athletes together. School Spirit is very big on campus, whether there is a game or not. Many people love the school and it shows everyday.The gym is also a very big place to go on campus. It's just a 2-3 min walk away from the dorms. A lot of athletes and non-athletes like to go there to stay fit and healthy.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Public safety is very close to the dorms. There aren't too far and there are emergency boxes around campus should they ever be needed. They aren't overbearing and often the appear when needed. They do make daily rounds around the campus and the dorms. They are also open 24/7, so I feel better knowing that they never close. The officers are also friendly so it's never intimidating to approach them. There isn't a lot of campus crime, however the surrounding city sometimes has incidents that bleed onto campus grounds. We are informed as soon as an incident occurs via emails and text messages.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There are hardly an incidents when it comes to highly illegal substances. In fact, I have not witnessed nor heard of an incident yet. The only drug used is weed and it is a very small population of the school that uses. Alcohol is strictly forbidden in dorms and if caught with it there will be write ups and AA meetings. No one is ever peer pressured into drink or drug usage and those who do not partake are never isolated or shunned. The college is relatively safe when it comes to any drugs and alcohol.
