4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: For the most part our campus strict on rules.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Dorms are small, unless you want to pay an even more ridiculous amount of money to live in the oaks.

2 College Sophomore

Computers: Sometimes while working in the lobby, my computer does not even see the network.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: I personally have never seen anybody have problems being accepted.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining options are very expensive based on the meal plan, and the cafeteria is often very disappointing with their food options.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The small class sizes allow for a more personal relationship with your professors. It also allows for more one on one assistance both inside and outside of class.

Off-Campus Dining: There are many different options, it is easy to find something different to try. Not many good choices if you are trying to stay healthy.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I am a member of the fraternity Delta Upsilon. Through the rushing process, i gained many new and valuable friends that i now call my brothers.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: Some of our teams are better than others, but student involvement in the sporting events is borderline pathetic. My high school had a much more enjoyable student/fan experience with a real student section that stood up the entire game in all sporting events.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: It was a very easy process choosing my major, and finding a plan to meet credit requirements.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I like it. You get to know the teachers, which makes it a lot easier to get the help you need.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Except in the winter, i have absolutely no problems with the weather. But, i did choose this school in Wisconsin, so i know that i am going to have to deal with the below zero temperatures.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I feel there are some visitation rules that are completely annoying. My example being that the lobby in the dorm buildings can not me heterosexual after visitation hours. I feel that when it is later at night all people should be allowed to work in the lobby barring any noise complaints. I know from my standpoint, i do not want to keep my roommate awake while i am working on homework at night, so i try and work on it in the library, unless there are females working, in which case i am not allowed to work there.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Overall, transportation is pretty convenient. At times it does take a while for the shuttle to reach its location, especially during the winter, so waiting outside it bad.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school did help me get the financial aid that i needed to attend Carthage College, but it took many phone calls, and at times it seemed like the school was ignoring my phone calls.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: We get to interact with our professors in a friendly, open, and lax manner. Most of our professors become our friends and role models and will help us find a job and career after college, and even during college. One thing that would prevent me from coming here if I could do it all over is I might pick a cheaper school. I'm not a fan of having no money, though it isn't really a new concept for me though now I have even less and will be i debt for years.

College Junior

Campus Strictness: As long as it isn't disrupting others, we get away with anything

4 College Junior

Drug Safety: Pretty much everyone is partaking in drugs or alcohol at least once a week. Nobody pressures anyone to drink or do drugs, its every individual choice. As long as they don't hear/ smell/ see it there is no problem. As long as you aren't totally out of your mind and to the point of hurting yourself or others, the RAs don't enforce anything.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: My only problem is the heal-care. If you're sick, the nurse can't do anything for you, you have to go to the hospital and pay money we college students don't have. It is extremely inconvenient when it is something minor that they could easily help us with. We have small thefts but I've never had an issue because I lock my door. I feel really safe on campus.

3 College Junior

Computers: There are always printer problems in the library and usually when 1 breaks down, they all do. The internet connect, as I said before, is spotty. I lose connection all the time. I'll be doing something online for class and go to click on another an link and it will take forever and sometimes I'll lose connection. It's very frustrating because I'm a very busy person with a full course load and extracurricular activities and a job so I have very few hours to spare and I don't want or need to stay up part midnight if I can help it.

3 College Junior

Diversity: We don't have a lot of diversity but this a private Lutheran college so you can't really expect much more.

3 College Junior

Parking: You need a permit to park anywhere unless you're a visitor. Ticketing and fines are outrageous! You park on campus drive to run into your room and come out 2 minutes later and there is a ticket on your car... we're allowed to be there 5 minutes, there should be no reason for you to ticket me. If security is unsure on how long that car has been sitting there, wait 5 minutes and if the person doesn't show, then ticket them. You can't just see it and assume they've been there over 5 minutes. Also, when they give you a citation, they don't tell you if its a warning or a fine. So suddenly there's an extra charge to your tuition and you can't do anything about it anymore. The off campus lots are difficult to get to due to an unreliable shuttle. The shuttle will be scheduled to arrive at the flagpole on campus at 6:00 so you get there at 5:55. However, the shuttle doesn't arrive until 6:15 putting you behind schedule. The waiting area in the lots is ridiculous. It is a 3 and a half sided glass box with heat lamps on top. However, the panels are not together, there are inch gaps in them allowing wind and cold to get through defeating the purpose of the heat lamps. When you arrive to Lot P after the regular shuttle hours and call for security to pick you up, it takes them at least 30 minutes to get to you. I've gotten sick several times waiting for them when they said a drive is just leaving campus and will be there in a few minutes and ended up waiting 40 minutes.

3 College Junior

Weather: We're right of the lake so we have a lot of lake effect weather which sometimes makes it difficult to be motivated to go to class.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms are out of date and really small. The internet connection is spotty and some days I have trouble completing homework because my internet cuts in a out. The cost is way too high and my mom and I are breaking our backs trying to pay for my education and future. The meal plan is annoying because you have 50 points (dollars) per week and if you somehow don't spend them all, they're gone, never to be seen by you again (a.k.a. free money from us to the school). Most students do blow through those 50 points by Wednesday because the food here is so flipping' expensive. Thank goodness for the extra 450 points we get that last the whole year that also need to be used up by the end of the year or else bye bye money. It would also be very beneficial to have more healthy options on campus. We have a wing place, a "mexican" place, a sub place and Einsteins, not very healthy unless you order the few healthy options. They should also have more variety for vegetarians and people with gluten or lactose allergies. There is a small section of gluten free food in our corner store but it is even more expensive than the other food.

3 College Junior

Academics: Some of the professors are a-holes and even when a test is open note and open book you end up failing their test because of their weird wording. Those teachers are few but they are there. The rest of the professors are great though. The registration process is alright, its annoying though when they put your registration time when you're in class. I wish that they could extend the maximum credits allowed to 20 credits because most of the courses that are important to your major or the graduation requirements are 4 credits and its hard to stay under 18 credits and work on graduating on time. I may have to stay an extra semester because of this or pay $450 per extra credit.
