Health & Safety: The only reason it feels unsafe is because there are not that many sources of lights around the campus and the only way you will see lights is by going toward the cafe to get to your dorm from a night class, which is a long way..

Computers: LABS ROCK, free printing. You have to pay copies though in library. I've been told that you can fax in library as well.

Diversity: everyone is accepting of people from different backgrounds. they actually take an interest in them in some situations and want to know more about how they found out about the school. it is a diverse background in every aspect.

Academics: NURSING: workload-is definitely a lot but its worth it. Clinicals are limited to what you get to see or do, but fun for the most part. Facilities are good. there are numerous resources available to students who struggle with content. you will have a full load of classes.

Academics: It's easy to get along with professors. they are willing to work with you and are always open. Registration can take forever if you don't do it early and wait to late or long to complete.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: It's a cool school. We can be like a family at times and get along.

Transportation: we don't have any transportation options at our school, we use to but it is no longer in place.

College Senior

Greek Life: Greeks are there but they are like other students. Nongreeks and greeks get along. if you hang with greek, you find out a lot of the mess that goes on within greek life (he/she, who's doing what, and who everyone in the greek life don't like, etc).

College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: i have never lived off campus, and i don't know many people that complain about it being horrible.

2 College Senior

Parking: THEY love to tow and write tickets!!! follow all the parking rules if you know them. if you question your tickets, go talk to the dept asap they will work with you. The parking is horrible. you are limited to where you can park.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: THE ROOMS ARE SMALL AND BEDDING IS OUT OF DATE!! there are 3 options for women. 1. Honors dorm which i LOVE. It is quiet when you need it to be, spacious, and plenty of parking. The bathrooms are shared with you, your roommate and your 2 suite mates, which is better than sharing with an entire floor. There are 3 study rooms inside the dorm, a computer lab, and a laundry room.
2. Burrus hall, which is completely outdated. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
3. New dorms. They are almost like mini apartments you share with 3 other people or you can get a private that you share with one other person. The rooms have a living room/kitchen (with only a tv, sink, and fridge), a common sink outside of the toilet/tub area, a bathroom (toilet and tub), and two rooms (2 people in each room).

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: After about a semester here, you can pretty much guess what the cafe is serving on particular days. But WEDNESDAYS are always CHICKEN DAY...you have to get to the cafe when it opens to get a seat and a plate, the cafe basically turns into a club with music dancing and eating. FRIDAYS ARE FISH DAY. You are served in a buffet manner. all you can eat. you get 3 different options. 1. Pizza line 2. burger line 3. entree line!! the food is good, but sometimes it can be quite a surprise when you bite into something or even look at it.
Besides the cafe, there is a Sub Connection, Starbucks, Pizza Hut, an eatery within the cafe on campus (aka Subway).
Right behind the campus there are 4 eateries 1. Pattons, 2. Wingos(serve wings,burgers, fries, etc.) , 3. CJs, and 4. i don't know the name but they serve a variety of things.

3 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: There are two different campuses for my school. I have had the opportunity to live at both. The main campus is really remote. The nearest town is 15 minutes away, and there is only one small town grocery store, about 3 dollar stores (dollar general, freds, and family dollar), two main eateries (sonic and chinese restaurant) there is also a chicken place inside a gas station. about 30 minutes away from the main campus is the Nursing campus which is located in a bigger city. In this city there are thousands of ood options (mcdonalds, burger king, pizza hut, dominos, wendy's, kfc, taco bell, chinese restaurants, casinos, hole in the walls, coffee shops, downtown restaurants, seafood, etc.). The is also a WALMART here along with other shopping centers. the mall doesn't offer many choices. But an hour and a half away are larger cities who offer more.
