4 College Senior

Health & Safety: I generally feel safe on campus. The only kind of incidents you hear of are ones that happen on Kings Street which are usually around 1am or so. As long as you're smart about it, incidents don't usually happen.

Academics: I've been a music education major up until this point and although the program is a good one the workload goes overboard. The facilities are great and from what I know the internship/job opportunities are easy enough to find. But the curriculum and workload ask far more from students than most other degrees do and it gets to be a bit too much.

3 College Senior

Academics: The professors that I've encountered so far are great. The registration process is iffy if you are a music major because there are faculty members who basically register for you in your first two semesters without really showing you how to register so you're kind of on your own after that. Workload can be tough but for general education courses it is more than manageable. Popular study areas are usually the solarium or out on Sanford Mall when the weather is nice and it isn't blizzarding.

College Senior

Drug Safety: I've never taken part in any of it. But from what I've seen walking around campus there is only an occasional sighting. It's more of a fraternity thing than your average student.

College Senior

Greek Life: I haven't been involved in Greek Life on campus. However they seem pretty low key. I've heard they have fun but we never see or hear anything disruptive from them.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: It's not too bad, although students don't really get discounts and the majority of eateries are fast food.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: LOTS of bomb restaurants and eateries. The bar scene could learn a thing or two from the restaurants. give the people what they want.

3 College Senior

Diversity: I mean for being in the south there sure isn't much diversity. I certainly have friends from all different ethnicities, but campus is, for the majority, white. There seems to be a good amount of religious diversity, and political freedom of thought, but the conservative views of the old south definitely have a place here as well.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: No housing, but there are some awesome Frats and Sororities. Hoping to join Sigma Nu in the fall!

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: I have a uniquely terrible landlord, but most places seem awesome around here. Can;t wait to find a better housing option.

4 College Senior

Majors: So far all my teachers have been awesome. I need to work harder to keep up, but that's a personal issue. Excited to be at App almost everyday.

College Senior

Majors: I have yet to do an internship, however I would enjoy the experience. Hopefully in my senior year I can find and participate in something like that.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Everyone seems friendly and nice, of course there is always chance of crime or assault, but I have never had any issues.
