4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: For the most part, the school is very friendly. Books are cheap. Located near a decent amount of stores, restaurants, and party places.

3 College Senior

Campus Strictness: School Policies – The school was not very strict in the past, however, they have really improved in this area. campus police are available 24 hours a day. Parking is reserved and any cars without decals are towed at the student's convenience. The school has improved on strictness, but still provides a decent amount of freedom.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Okay but Needs Improvement – I recieved a great amount of financial aid to cover university book costs and tuition, however, refunds aren't dispersed before or during the first 2 - 3 weeks of school starting which is a bummer for students wishing to rent or purchase books online.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Knowledgeable Instructors in Subject Matter – Instructors take the time to explain the work to the students in class and are also available after class when needed.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I don't notice any one partaking in drugs or alcohol on campus.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Do not partake in off campus housing and cannot give a assumption.

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: on Allen University campus you don't see alot of students using drugs. the past couple years under age drinking has become a problem.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The Limited Attention – Being a Social Science Major at Allen University can be difficult. The reason why because as a beginning college freshman I was supposed to have an Academic advisor person helped me in my degree area. The fact that I didn't have one my most critical year of college held me back from taking the classes I reallly needed to take. I had to learn to go get help even if they didn't want to give it.

1 College Student

Nightlife: Nothing to Do on Campus – there is really nothing to do on campus besides Frats/Soros but I cant do it because im a freshman

4 College Student

Parking: Parking is good because it has alot of good available spaces

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Not Much to Do – Columbia is a big circle but nothing isnt really near. So you basically have to have a car or know somebody that does

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Men's Basketball – Valuable program. Very good rapport between teammates and coaching staff. Looking forward to upcoming season!

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm not a member of a fraternity and therefore cannot give an accurate evaluation of the greek life at Allen University.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: OUR CAFETERIA SHOULD BE NAMED DIVERSITY – The dining facilities are always clean and you have enough of a concientious staff to make sure that everyone gets waited on in a timely fashion. There may be some long lines at times,however they do not last long.

The food is magnificent, but you must consider that the writer of this review is an Adult. The Food consists, and I will categorize here: Cold cuts with plenty of lettuce and tomatoes and pickles; a salad bar; beverages of many kinds, both hot and col; pizza corner; fast food bar with chicken(baked,barbequed and sometimes fried), french fries, wonderful main courses which consist of many and varied vegetables, different types of rice dishes,lean meats, soups, potatoes, and just about anything a person could want. There is also fresh fruit in season. Oh yes and one more thing, desert(cakes and pies).

So you see why I stated the Cafeteria should be named Diversity or maybe even Diverse City!!

4 College Sophomore

Computers: The computer lab always has some students there, I will venture to say that even on the weekends you will find students in the computer lab.

The equipment is fast and reliable and if there is a problem of any kind there is always personnel on hand to help you. We could always use more computers. We have many diligent students. The only reason that I don't give an A+ is that the computer Labs close to early and not open seven days a week.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live in my own home @200miles from Allen University.I am also an Independent Adult student which makes all the difference in the world. Just due to distance, there is a time factor involved (leaving home, returning to home). Not convenient, but necessary. I am a member of the African American Episcopal Church. I am not now, nor at anytime,have I been the only student with the distance problem. But we do what we must!!

The school's off-campus housing facilities are not an issue here. Since I am only on campus on the weekends I have no idea what the policies are,or where students are living, or how convenient the commute is for other students.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process here at Allen is a little messy and unorganized. However, if one keeps in contact with the office and handles their business very seriously it will eventually be straightened out. Cost of attendance is only about 16,124 a year.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Nightlife sor students under 21 is just as great as over 21. There are many clubs around Columbia, SC. As for the bars there is a whole strip of them down 5 points which is just a 5 to 10 minute walk from campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Allen Safety – There is always police or security around the campus. Crime is low and personal saftey is high especially due to curfews. I have never felt unsafe on campus

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: Since I have been here I have had major difficulties and tried to make the best of things, but still something always ordinary happens.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: Since the school is small eveyone is friendly to each other.

1 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are many religions and eithnic/racial diveristy.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Life on Allen University campus is very usual. it seems like we are prisoniers. we dont have many sport or event to keep us entertained. They have polices riding round every 5 mins.This is not the college life i expext to have.They don't even have teacher showing up for sum of the classes.This is what the college life feels like at allenn university.

1 College Senior

Parking: Parking on campus can be a mess a times. One has to make sure that he/she must be on campus atleast 45min early, because of the limited parking spaces.

1 College Junior

Drug Safety: Why Oh Why ? Allen University should rethinking the fact that they cancelled the drug raids we used to have! I mean drugs are always visable,but they are always there & if you need them they are at your convience! I have noticed that alot of people smoke, and to me thats just terrible. Ive noticed people going to class drunk & its just so unacceptable to me!
