Transportation: Most students live on campus or commute to school, taking their own cars, carpooling, or taking the city bus. There are bus stops nearby, with safety a top priority and campus security waling students there and back. Parking is abundant on the street, parking lots, and even a parking structure. The rest of the campus is all connected with underground tunnels, so there is no need for on campus shuttles.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I received a great deal of help from peers at my school and the financial aide staff. There was always someone available to answer my questions, and they respond to phone calls and emails in a timely manner.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are pizza joints for take-n-bake, dine in, or delivery that are open late, perfect for study sessions. There are coffeehouses on campus as well as off, also offering breakfast options like bagels and pancakes.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Student life on campus is overall pretty good, there's access to many different things

2 College Freshman

Facilities: The school isn't very unique the only unique things about it is the fact that it is an all girls school and the grading system is different then most schools

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I haven't had any experience with the health services so I wouldn't know anything about the quality of the service. The safety on campus however is really good, officers/security are always visible, making the campus feel much more safe.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The city that the college is located in is a lot busier and populated than the city I am originally from so it's harder for me to get around, because I've only been there a semester I'm still learning.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is a very east process. The people are extremely helpful and are always willing to help.

3 College Freshman

Computers: The computer availability around the entire campus is really good, bringing a laptop isn't necessarily a necessity because of the availability of computers. The wireless access and speed however is extremely poor. Living in the dorms is irritating at times because of that.
