3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Not a big concern on Campus.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: i don't exercise or go to sporting events

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: it's fine, there's no pressure

College Freshman

Scholarships: I am still in the process of receiving financial aid. I have a scholarship through the college that is helping pay off some of my tuition, but not enough. I will be closer in contact with the Camp Building on campus to discuss financial aid next year.

2 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: You have to go to the next town over (Wyomissing) in order to get out of the slum areas of Reading. Reading does have it's good parts and some nice shops, but they are closer to Wyomissing. The city is in bad shape closer to campus, but it still has places to visit and things to do. Wyomissing is a LOT safer and cleaner than Reading.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are truly dedicated to their craft and a majority of them work hard with students to make sure they not only understand the material, but get something out of it. I am only a freshman and am already starting to make contacts through my on-campus job and through my professors. You'll always get at least 1 professor or class that you might not like, but the ones you do like, you will definitely get a good experience with.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is accessibility to alcohol, mostly from legal upperclassmen, but hardly ever is anyone peer pressured into consumption. Everyone will respect your opinion if you chose to drink or not to, but will make sure if you do, that you are safe. Definitely less visibility of drugs and alcohol than my high school. There is quite a bit of awareness about it.

4 College Freshman

Majors: My major is brand new and specifically designed for students like myself. A lot of incoming students showed interest in it so it was considered and then passed. The college works well with students to find programs that perfect fit what they want to get out of the academic experience.

4 College Freshman

Majors: My major is broad enough to the point that it will give me the skills for the career I want, as well as related careers should I know be able to find a job in that specific area. In involves a lot of information and different skills that will prepare students well. Since it's a brand new major, it is still being tested out, but is off to a great start.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don't live off campus, but heard good things.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Most eat on campus, but have good options if not

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Good spirit. Involved without being over obsessive

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Great as a whole, but my basement floor is bad.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: Could offer more shuttle runs, but not bad.

College Sophomore

Health & Safety: They don't like to put out information concerning this.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is just another facet of college life.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: It can be difficult finding a place off campus.

College Sophomore

Nightlife: Same as other colleges and universities.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: You're either getting pizza places, or Chinese food.

College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are all fantastic; the curriculum can be easy, challenging and rewarding. Registration is easy--you just have to be prepared.

College Sophomore

Weather: This year, winter has been especially bad, hampering classes and plans. However, that is not usually the case; the weather tends to be mild.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: Fill out your FASFA as soon as possible! And don't fret, the school isn't too quick with their rewards.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: Of course, the library is where everyone wants to go. The library has a small amount of computers--at almost all of the times during day, they are are in use. The computer labs are better, there are more computers, however, it's not located in a central part of the school

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: This really depends on who you come into contact with.

College Sophomore

Athletics: Students aren't as involved with the sports on campus, unless they are an athlete, or it's Homecoming.
